[Japan, Taiwan, S. Korea] Famitsu and Media Create sales for Week 47, 2020 (November 16 – November 22) [Top 30]

Here’s the latest sales reports from Famitsu and Media Create, with Hardware and Software sales for Week 47, 2020 in Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea!

Famitsu (Week 47)

Week 47 was another big week for the Japanese market, especially on the Nintendo Switch with the release of some high profile titles.

The biggest release of the week is Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban! which is off to a great start with 345 697 units sold at retail. Total shipments have already topped 500 000 units, in part thanks to strong digital sales. Since it’s going to be one of the key titles this holiday season, it will have absolutely no trouble clearing that milestone with just retail sales.

Next, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. This second Hyrule Warriors game is off to a strong start with 173 215 units sold at retail: that’s more than all other versions of Hyrule Warriors at launch combined! It’s not clear how it’s going to sell during the holiday season (this isn’t exactly your typical holiday title), but it should have no trouble outselling all versions of Hyrule Warriors combined (about 284 000 units).

Here’s how the various versions of Hyrule Warriors sold:

  • Wii U: 78 773 units at launch, 126 700 units LTD
  • Nintendo 3DS: 54 856 units at launch, 107 312 units LTD
  • Nintendo Switch: 21 064 units at launch, 54 021 units LTD

Finally, we have Fortnite: The Last Bundle at #5 with a surprisingly strong debut: 31 267 units were sold during launch week. In comparison, the previous bundle (Darkfire Bundle) sold only 6 115 units at launch (but went on to sell over 41 089 units LTD). It should have no trouble selling over 50 000 units LTD, and could even reach 100 000 units LTD thanks to strong holiday sales. That would definitely be a strong result for the retail package of a Free 2 Play title!

Highlights this week include:

  • 03./04. [NSW] Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Nintendo) – 37.290 / 6.011.308 (+14%). It’s now sold over 6 million units at retail alone;
  • 09./24. [NSW] Super Mario Party # <ETC> (Nintendo) {2018.10.05} (¥5.980) – 12.859 / 1.608.879 (+179%). Massive increase in sales this week thanks to the re-release of the bundle including two sets of Joy-Cons.

It looks like the Ring Fit Adventure bundle was rather limited, as sales only increased by 50% week on week.

This week, the Nintendo Switch saw a noticeable increase in sales thanks to a combination of strong new releases and a new bundle (Ring Fit Adventure). It sold no less than 179 143 units, which is more or less the same as last year during the same week (179 992 units). Unfortunately, it does not look like Nintendo shipped as many units of the Ring Fit Adventure bundle as expected, and it may end up a far more limited released than expected.

With the holiday season just around the corner, there’s no reason to expect Nintendo Switch to drop below the 100 000 units milestone before January. The next few weeks will see increased demand for the console, and said demand has already been strong throughout the year.

YTD sales now stand at 4 835 968, which means that the next milestone (5 million units) will be reached as early as next week, unless sales drop too sharply during Week 48. As for LTD sales, they stand at 16 219 399 units, with 2 852 642 units for the Lite Model, and 13 366 757 units for the far more popular OG model.

As for the Nintendo 3DS, sales saw a neglible increase with 588 units sold (vs. 497 units last week, and 1 073 units last year during the same week). YTD sales now stand at 59 948 units (vs. 175 474 units last year as of Week 47), and LTD sales at 24 556 095 units).
