[Japan, Taiwan, S. Korea] Famitsu and Media Create sales for Week 43, 2020 (October 19 – October 25) [Top 30]

Here’s the latest sales reports from Famitsu and Media Create, with Hardware and Software sales for Week 43, 2020 in Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea!

Famitsu (Week 43)

Week 43 was a really slow week for the Japanese market, especially on the Software front: not a single entry in the Top 10 Software, and the best-selling game barely sold 23 000 units…

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit had a rough second week with a 90% drop, and 7 691 units sold. Holidays sales will determine whether it’s a success or not, but so far, sales have been rather so-so (solid first week, but poor second week).

Highlights this week include:

  • 03./04. [NSW] Super Mario 3D All-Stars (Nintendo) – 10.383 / 355.428 (-30%). It’s now sold over 350 000 units since launch;
  • 09./12. [NSW] Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics (Nintendo) – 4.051 / 411.984 (-13%). Makes its comeback in the Top 10 Software this week. It’s now sold over 400 000 units at retail alone.

This week, pretty much all evergreen titles saw their sales drop, though there’s one exception: Pokémon Sword and Shield, thanks to the release of The Crown Tundra on October 23rd.

This week, Nintendo Switch sales dropped some more, from 95 582 units to 64 768 units. Sales are still stronger than usual, especially in light of the lack of notable releases (and yes, shortages and lotteries are still pretty much a thing for the OG model).

In comparison, the console sold 69 438 units during the same week last year. Of course, those extra 5 000 units sold aren’t nowhere near enough to catch up to total 2020 sales (4 314 373 units vs 2 787 946 units). LTD sales now stand at 15 697 804 units, with 2 761 601 units for the Lite model and 12 936 203 units for the OG model (it should reach the 13 million units milestone within the next couple of weeks).

Finally, Nintendo 3DS sales are perfectly flat with 856 units sold (of course, this is stastical noise, it didn’t sell the exact same amount during Week 42 and 43). In comparison, the handheld sold 1 241 units during the same week last year. YTD sales now stand at 57 083 units (vs. 170 295 units last year), and LTD sales at 24 553 230 units.
