Media Create sales for Week 10, 2016 (March 7 -13) [Top 50]

Update

We just added the Top 50 to this post: you will find it below!

***

During Week 10, two games came out on Nintendo platforms, and both did (slightly) better than expected. First, we have The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, which is #2 with 52 282 units sold (which includes both the regular and Limited Edition with the Wolf Link amiibo) during the first four days.

It’s a pretty good debut, though it seems Nintendo has shipped too many copies to retailers (only 40-60% of the Day 1 shipment was effectively sold). It’s also significantly better than The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, which sold 30 264 units during its launch week, back in September 2013. There’s two main reasons to explain those better sales:

  • the Wii U userbase is quite larger compared to September 2013 (1 084 635 Wii U sold back then);
  • The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is more popular than The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (which has a rather bad reputation in Japan).

Unfortunately, sales will most likely be poor within the next few weeks, and it will take a while before the game reaches 100 000 units sold.

The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HDThe second entry on Nintendo platforms is Medabots Girls Mission, which sold 20 142 units during the first four days. According to Famitsu, 60-80% of all units shipped to retailers were effectively sold, which implies they were rather cautious with this new Medabots game (which came out less than three months since the last one, after all).

As a comparison, Medabots 9 (the latest mainline entry) sold 27 702 units during its launch week, with a 40-60% sellthrough. In other words, Medabots Girls Mission sold worse than Medabots 9, but sellthrough ratio is better. It’s better than expected for a series whose sales have been rather mediocre in the past few years, and for a release so close to the last one (Medabots 9 came out on December 24th).

During Week 10, things were pretty calm for pretty much all the previously released games. Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympics is still holding pretty well with 13 408 units sold (-27%): it’s now guaranteed to reach 100 000 units sold next week. At this rate, it might even reach 200 000 units sold even before the start of the actual Olympics.

Splatoon is also holding well, with 10 331 units sold during Week 10. That’s a 6% drop compared to Week 9, which is quite limited considering Wii U sales dropped sharply this week. Indeed, Wii U shortages are back in full force, which explains why Super Mario Maker disappeared from the Top 20.

Another game that held pretty well is Doraemon: Shin Nobita no Nihon Tanjou, with 6 432 units sold during the second week. That’s a drop of 14%, which is quite surprising for a licenced game during its second week. Then again, first week sales were not exactly stellar to begin with! As for Monster Hunter X, it’s #14 with 5 803 units sales (-8%).

Finally, we have a Yo-kai Watch vs Pokémon duel, with:

  • Yo-kai Watch Busters at #17 with 4 869 units sold (-25%);
  • Pokémon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire at #20 with 4 088 units sold.

Pokémon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire sales have been steadily increasing in the past few weeks, and the game finally made its comeback in Media Create’s Top 20. It looks like the recent release of Pokémon Red Version / Green Version / Blue Version / Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition, and the Pokémon 20th Anniversary celebrations, have had a positive impact on sales.

As a bonus, here’s the sales of… a Wii game (the same one that made its comeback in Famitsu’s Top 30 a couple of weeks ago, due to a TV show in which it’s been featured):

  • Momotaro Dentetsu 2010: Sengoku Ishin no Hero Daishuugou! no Maki – 3.774 / 304.918 (+3%) [Famitsu]

Hardware-wise, there’s nothing special to note about the Nintendo 3DS. Once again, its sales are slightly down for Week 10, but the handheld still has some fight left in it. The drop compared to 2015 isn’t too big yet, especially since the heavy hitters (Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3, Disney Art Academy, or Kirby: Planet Robobot) are yet to hit.

Talking of Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3, it comes out next week: it should have a positive impact on Nintendo 3DS sales, but it will be rather limited since there’s already been quite a few Dragon Quest Monsters Joker (and Dragon Quest games in general) on the platform.

As for the Wii U, its sales dropped sharply during Week 10 with only 4 629 units sold. This is due to shortages being back in full force: the situation seemed to be improving last week, but it didn’t last long. Nintendo’s sporadic shipments clearly are not enough to meet demand, much to the frustration of retailers (not so much of players, who can always buy the console used).

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the situation will improve until early April. As for the Pokkén Tournament bundles, they have already sold out at many retailers… In other words: quantities are pretty limited, and while the impact on sales will be noticeable, it will not last very long.
