[Japan, Taiwan, S. Korea] Famitsu and Media Create sales for Week 31, 2020 (July 27 – August 02) [Top 30]

Here’s the latest sales reports from Famitsu and Media Create, with Hardware and Software sales for Week 31, 2020 in Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea!

Famitsu (Week 31)

There’s a few new games in the Top 10 Software this week, but only one on Nintendo Switch: Fairy Tail. The two versions of the game sold over 28 000 units combined, with 15 447 units on Nintendo Switch (the best-selling version). It’s an “ok” debut, but nothing to write home about, especially as sales are bound to be frontloaded. It will probably be gone from the Top 10 as early as next week.

Highlights this week include:

  • 02./01. [NSW] Animal Crossing: New Horizons # <ETC> (Nintendo) {2020.03.20} (¥5.980) – 56.730 / 5.337.128 (-40%). Big drop due to lower Nintendo Switch shipments. The bundle with the game accounted for a big chunk of last week’s sales;
  • 03./04. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure <HOB> (Nintendo) {2019.10.18} (¥7.980) – 37.217 / 1.242.596 (+16%). Noticeable increase this week, the only evergreen title in the Top 10 that didn’t see a drop in sales this week;
  • 08./06. [NSW] eBaseball Powerful Pro Baseball 2020 <SPT> (Konami) {2020.07.09} (¥6.980) – 13.341 / 159.030 (-37%). Over 150 000 units sold since launch.

Due to drop in Nintendo Switch shipments, the various evergreen titles on Nintendo Switch took a hit, but of course, that drop but temporary.

Famitsu – Hardware

This week, Nintendo Switch sales saw a big drop, once again due to insufficient shipments. The console still sold over 86 000 units (vs. 125 231 units last week), which is over two times what it sold back during Week 31 2019 (36 613 units). Demand is still through the roof, and while things have certainly improved over the past couple of weeks, Nintendo are still not able to fully meet demand (and probably won’t be before the end of Summer).

So far, the Nintendo Switch has sold 3 141 044 units this year alone, and if things continue at this pace, we will soon get to the point where 2020 sales are twice higher than 2019 sales. Right now, the gap between the two years is about 1.4 million units (1 740 082 units sold as of Week 31 2019). LTD sales now stand at 14 524 475 units, with 2 444 965 units for the Lite model, and 12 079 510 units for the OG model.

As for the Nintendo 3DS, sales dropped back in 3-digit territory, with 776 units sold (vs. 1 042 units last week, and 2 610 units last year during the same week). YTD sales now stand at 37 795 units (vs. 143 060 units last year as of Week 31), and LTD sales at 24 533 942 units.
