[Japan, Taiwan, S. Korea] Famitsu and Media Create sales for Week 48, 2020 (November 23 – November 29) [Top 30]

Here’s the latest sales reports from Famitsu and Media Create, with Hardware and Software sales for Week 48, 2020 in Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea!

Famitsu (Week 48)

Week 48 was much quieter when it comes to new games, with only 1 entry in the Top 10 Software this time around. That entry is Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythmic Adventure Pack, which is off to a lukewarm start with only 15 504 units sold. In comparison, the two games included in this bundle sold 62 247 units and 40 946 units respectively.

Of course, the fact that it’s a port of two games that already sold over 400 000 units combined on Nintendo 3DS does limit the sales potential of this bundle, but it should be able to get to a respectable total thanks to the holiday season.

Highlights this week include:

  • 01./01. [NSW] Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban! (Konami) – 126.729 / 472.426 (-63%). A strong second week that follows a strong debut. It will reach the 500 000 units milestone at retail alone, and could very well sell over 1 million units by the end of the year;
  • 02./02. [NSW] Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity (Koei Tecmo) – 40.667 / 213.882 (-77%). Second week drop is fairly standard. It’s now sold over 200 000 units at retail alone. Once the holiday season, we will have a good idea of what to expect for total sales (500 000 is possible with digital);
  • 05./07. [NSW] Pikmin 3 Deluxe (Nintendo) – 21.314 / 315.862 (-12%). It’s now sold over over 300 000 units since launch, and should end 2020 comfortably above 400 000 units LTD.

With the holiday season now in full swing, sales of evergreen titles on Nintendo Switch should keep on increasing. This week is a bit of a mixed bag, in part due to lower Nintendo Switch sales than expected.

This week, Nintendo Switch sales took an unexpected hit, with 145 178 units sold. The drop isn’t too bad (about 34 000 units less than during Week 47), but it’s a drop nonetheless. The OG model is the one that’s the most impacted, as sales of the Lite model are basically flat with 27 196 units sold (demand for this particular model has been met for quite a few weeks now).

Year on Year, Nintendo Switch sales are down: the console sold 186 763 units during the same week last year. While demand is going to remain strong during the next few weeks, with the usual increase throughout December, it seems that the lack of heavy-hitter this year (last year had Pokémon Sword and Shield) is going to hurt sales during the holiday season, though of course, it’s not like sales are going to drop off a cliff (far from it).

Unfortunately, because of that drop in sales this week, the Nintendo Switch missed the 5 million units YTD milestone by less than 20 000 units (4 981 146 units). In comparison, the Nintendo Switch sold “only” 3 543 006 units as of Week 48 in 2019. Even if 2020 sales end up down compared to 2019 during the remaining weeks of the year, the gap is unlikely to drop below 1 million units.

LTD sales now stand at 16 364 577 units, with 2 879 838 units for the Lite model, and 13 484 739 units for the OG model.

As for the Nintendo 3DS, sales dropped to 520 units (vs. 597 units last week, and 1 580 units last year). YTD sales now stand at 60 477 units (vs. 177 054 units last year), and LTD sales at 24 556 624 units LTD.
