[Japan, Taiwan, S. Korea] Famitsu and Media Create sales for Week 25, 2020 (June 15 – June 21) [Top 30]

Here’s the latest sales reports from Famitsu and Media Create, with Hardware and Software sales for Week 25, 2020 in Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea!

Famitsu (Week 25)

Week 25 was a bit busier than previous weeks, with some fresh blood finally making it in the Top 10 Software.

On Nintendo Switch, there’s two new games, and the best-selling one is Harukanaru Toki no Naka da 7, which is off to a satisfying debut with 14 062 units. In comparison, the previous entry sold about 13 000 units at launch, on PSP and PlayStation Vita (combined). Not the biggest of growth, but still a welcome one (even though those sales are nowhere near the heydays of the series of PlayStation 2, with the best selling entry at +80 000 units sold).

The Namcot Collection is also off to a good start with 9 532 units sold. Unfortunately, sales are bound to fall off a cliff next week, as collection of retro games are not known for selling over long periods of time.

Other highlights this week include:

  • 02./01. [NSW] Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Nintendo) – 73.680 / 4.934.168 (-5%). It’s, quite simply, unstoppable. It will become the first 5 million-seller on Nintendo Switch next week, and it’s nowhere near being done selling;
  • 04./03. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure <HOB> (Nintendo) {2019.10.18} (¥7.980) – 32.663 / 1.038.732 (+63%). Despite a sizeable shipment this week, demand is not being met yet. Another game that is just going to keep on selling for many months to come;
  • 07./04. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe <RCE> (Nintendo) {2017.04.28} (¥5.980) – 9.251 / 2.995.705 (-5%). The next milestone, 3 million units at retail alone, that’s next week!
  • 08./08. [NSW] Pokemon Sword / Shield # <RPG> (Pokemon Co.) {2019.11.15} (¥5.980) – 9.195 / 3.630.263 (+36%). A sizeable boost in sales thanks to the Isle of Armor DLC. Now it remains to be seen what the impact on long-term sales is going to be.

This week, Nintendo Switch saw a significant increase in sales, thanks to Nintendo being able to ship more units to retailers. The console sold 78 428 units, which is about 23 000 units more than during Week 24. But despite that increase, it’s still impossible to find the console at retailers; you have to go through one of their lotteries to be able to buy one. Fortunately, the increase this week might point at the stock situation finally improving, but it’s still too early to say.

The gap between 2020 and 2019 sales just keeps on increasing: the console only sold 29 058 units during the same week last year, and LTD sales only stood at 1 424 696 units. In comparison, the Nintendo Switch has already sold 2 573 083 units in 2020 alone as of this week.

The next milestone for the console is next week: 14 million units. As of Week 25, the Nintendo Switch has sold 13 956 514 units, and it needs less than 44 000 units to hit the milestone. Even if sales were to drop again, it’s almost guaranteed it will not miss it. As of this week, the OG model has sold 11 630 547 units, and the Lite model has sold 2 325 967 units.

As for the Nintendo 3DS, sales remain stable with 1 152 units sold (vs. 1 004 units last week, and 2 362 units during the same week last year). YTD sales now stand at 32 396 units (vs. 127 632 units last year as of Week 25), and LTD sales at 24 528 543 units.
