Japan: more sales data for Week 48, November, Famicom Mini, more (Media Create, Famitsu, Dengeki)

Media Create – Week 48

Today, Media Create released its weekly report for video game sales in Japan, providing us with more sales data for Week 48. During that week, Software sales topped 1 438 000 units, which is 165.49% of Week 47 sales: a massive increase quite obviously attributed to Final Fantasy XV for the most part, though Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS also contributed.

Famitsu – November

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Pokémon Sun and Moon was the best-seller in November 2016 in Japan, and by a wide margin (it sold almost 20 times more than the game at rank #2). Unfortunately, it’s the only game for a Nintendo platform in the Top 5.

01./00. [3DS] Pokemon Sun / Moon # <RPG> (Pokemon Co.) {2016.11.18} (¥4.980) – 2.327.453 / NEW
02./00. [PS4] Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare # <ACT> (Sony Interactive Entertainment) {2016.11.04} (¥7.900) – 145.643 / NEW
03./00. [PSV] Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star # <ACT> (Marvelous) {2016.11.10} (¥6.980) – 91.485 / NEW
04./00. [PS4] Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2 <FTG> (Bandai Namco Games) {2016.11.02} (¥7.600) – 87.870 / NEW
05./00. [PS4] Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star # <ACT> (Marvelous) {2016.11.10} (¥7.980) – 85.375 / NEW

PS4 – 3
3DS – 1
PSV – 1

As for as publishers go, The Pokémon Company was quite naturally the most successful. Nintendo is nowhere to be seen this month, due to The Pokémon Company being the publisher of Pokémon games in Japan (though Nintendo is handling distribution themselves).

  • Pokémon Co. – 2.338.000
  • Bandai Namco Games – 385.000
  • Marvelous – 181.000

Hardware-wise, Famitsu reports that the Nintendo Entertainment Mini: Family Computer sold 319 000 units in November, which means it sold 56 000 additional units during the two weeks that followed launch week. In other words, while there were indeed shortages, some retailers still had units left. As of this week, new shipments have finally arrived at retail, so we’re going to see sales increase even more during the last weeks of the year.
