Japan: more sales data for Week 6 2018 (Media Create, Dengeki)

Media Create (Week 6)

Today, Media Create published their weekly report on video game sales in Japan during Week 6, 2018. It reveals that total Software sales topped 657 000 units, which is 92.45% of Week 5 sales. Sales of new releases increased to 260.91% of Week 5 sales (so about 230 000 units), while sales of previously releases games dropped to 70% of Week 5 sales (so about 427 000 units).

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

Dengeki (Week 6)

This week, Dengeki simply report that Splatoon 2 has finally reached 2 million units sold at retail alone, with 2 079 325 units sold to be precise. It’s become the first multi-million-seller on Nintendo Switch (but certainly not the last!), and in less than 7 months to boot.

Overall, this week was calmer than the previous two, with Hardware sales decreasing by 28% to 127 000 units, and Software decreased by 0.8% to 615 000 units. Not the worst of drops, but not a good showing with several high profile releases this week.
