[Japan, Taiwan, S. Korea] Famitsu and Media Create sales for Week 25, 2021 (June 14 – June 20) [Top 30]

Here’s the latest sales reports from Famitsu and Media Create, with Hardware and Software sales for Week 25, 2021 in Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea!

Famitsu (Week 25)

Week 25 was a fairly quiet week for the video games market in Japan. Don’t bother searching for new games in the Top 10 Software: you won’t find any!

Game Builder Garage had a solid second week with 31 487 units sold (-56%), which brings total sales to 102 728 units at retail. It will be interesting to see how far the low price, the positive word of mouth, and the creativity of players will carry this rather unique game.

Other than that, there’s not much to say about the Top 10 Software this week, other than it features only Nintendo Switch games. Most evergreen titles titles on Nintendo Switch saw a minor increase in sales, with the exception of Ring Fit Adventure which is slightly down (-4%) but still enjoying strong sales, and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury.

Milestones this week:

  • Game Builder Garage has already sold over 100 000 units at retail;
  • Minecraft has finally sold over 2 million units at retail alone, and there’s little doubt it will reach 3 million units when all is said and done;
  • Miitopia has now sold over 150 000 units, and sales seem to be stabilising.

Famitsu – Hardware

Hardware-wise, Nintendo Switch sales dropped some more this week, but this time, the drop is fairly limited with 75 077 units sold (barely 3 000 units less than during Week 24). That’s slightly less than during the same week in 2020 (when the console sold pretty much as many units as during Week 24 2021), but clearly not enough to make much of a dent in the gap between 2021 and 2020 sales (still about 350 000 units strong).

Unless sales drop even further during Week 26, the Nintendo Switch may very well get to 3 million units YTD as early as next week, before the end of the 1st half of 2021. Looking at sales, one would be hard pressed not to doubt that the console is indeed in its 5th year on the market already. As of this week, it’s sold 2 928 506 units in 2021 (vs. 2 573 083 units last year).

LTD sales now stand at 20 268 880 units, with 3 903 023 units for the Lite model and 16 365 857 units for the OG model.

As for the Nintendo 3DS, sales rose to 481 units this week (vs. 395 units the previous week, and 1 152 units during the same week last year). YTD sales now stand at 15 344 units (vs. 32 396 units last year), and LTD sales at 24 574 252 units.
