Japan: more sales data for Week 49 2017 (Media Create, Dengeki)

Week 49 (Media Create)

Today, Media Create published their weekly report on video game sales in Japan during Week 49, 2017. It reveals that total Software sales topped 974 000 units, which is 140.77% of Week 48 sales. This time around, both new releases and previously released titles sold more (about 100 000 units more each), which is why the increase is quite noticeable.

Hardware-wise, sales also increased, to 305 000 units (151.76% of Week 48 sales). It’s thanks to bigger Nintendo Switch shipments, but mostly the PlayStation 4 and its Monster Hunter World bundle.

Day 1 sell-through (Media Create)

Here’s the Day 1 sell-through for one, lone Nintendo 3DS title:

  • [3DS] Harvest Moon: A Tale of Two Towns+ (Marvelous) – 20%. An unsurprisingly low debut, though sales should improve during the week-end and throughout the holiday season.

Week 49 (Dengeki)

This week, Dengeki report that Sumikko Gurashi: Sumiko Park e Youkoso sold about 10 000 units at launch. It’s the only new release on Nintendo platforms. As for previously released titles, we have Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon with 120 000 units sold this week (1 683 000 units since launch), and Super Mario Odyssey with 92 000 units sold (936 000 units since launch). Sales for both titles increased during Week 49.

Hardware-wise, sales are on the rise for the Nintendo Switch, despite the lack of new releases. The console sold 167 000 units, which is a 33% increase over the previous week. It’s now sold over 2.69 million units since launch.

Dengeki note that sales have been above the 100 000 units/week threshold for three weeks in a row:

  • November 20th week: 144 000 units (68.6% of Hardware sales that week)
  • November 27th week: 125 000 units (63.9% of Hardware sales that week)
  • December 4th week: 167 000 units (56.6% of Hardware sales that week)

It’s certainly going to be interesting to see just how much the Nintendo Switch is going rise in the next couple of weeks, though we already know that it will entirely depend on what Nintendo can ship to retailers, not so much consumer demand (which is still extremely high).
