Japan: more sales data for Week 4 2018, January (Media Create, Dengeki)

Media Create (Week 4)

Today, Media Create published their weekly report on video game sales in Japan during Week 3, 2018. It reveals that total Software sales topped 1 551 000 units, which is 340.59% of Week 3 sales. Sales more than tripled, and it’s absolutely not due to that “monster” game on PlayStation 4. Really.

Unfortunately, that’s pretty much it for this week, which was pretty uneventful for Nintendo platforms.

Media Create (Day 1 sell-through)

This week, we have the Day 1 sell-through for one, lone Nintendo Switch game:

  • [NSW] The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Bethesda Softworks) – 30%. Seemingly better than expected for such a game on Nintendo Switch.
