Week 44 (Media Create)

It reveals that total Software sales topped 678 000 units, which is 70.93% of Week 43 sales, putting an end to several weeks of increase. Total sales for new games topped 262 000, with less than 90% of those coming from PlayStation 4 titles.

Day 1 sell-through (Media Create)

Here’s the Day 1 sell-through for a few Nintendo Switch games:

  • [PS4] [NSW] Sonic Forces (Sega) – 30%. An average debut for a series that hasn’t sold decently in Japan in quite a while;
  • [NSW] Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires (Koei Tecmo) – Poor debut
  • [NSW] Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada (Koei Tecmo) – Poor debut
  • [NSW] Warriors Orochi 3: Ultimate (Koei Tecmo) – Poor debut

It’s not quite clear what Koei-Tecmo’s expectations are for the 3 Warriors games, but given their debut, it most definitely wasn’t lofty ones…

Week 44 (Dengeki)

This week, Dengeki report that Super Mario Odyssey sold about 122 000 units during its second week on the market, bringing the total since launch to about 579 000 units. Since the Nintendo Switch has sold about 2.09 million units to date, that means the attach rate for Super Mario Odyssey is about 27.6%. There’s clearly room for growth, though it’s unlikely it’s ever going to have one like Splatoon 2’s (62.9% as of this week).

Dengeki also shared a few words about the holiday season, which is upon us. Last year, there were several key titles such as Pokémon Sun and Moon (Nintendo 3DS, 3.04 million units sold), Final Fantasy XV (PlayStation 4, 900 000 units sold), and Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS (Nintendo 3DS, 900 000 units sold).

During that period, Hardware sales increased by 1.1% to 47.9 billion Yen, while Software sales increased by 13.4% to 65.8 billion Yen. The Market as a whole grew by 7.9%, from 105.4 billion Yen in 2015 to 113.7 billion Yen.

For this year, there’s one platform that will be key: the Nintendo Switch. As the new market leader, it pretty much come down to it whether or not the holiday season will see further growth this year.
