In its latest issue, Hobby Consolas shares some more sales data for the Spanish video game market. This time, the data goes all the way to Week 28 (so July 15th), and is for the following games: Octopath Traveler, Mario Tennis Aces, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, and MotoGP 18!
Let’s start Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which is off to a great start: it’s sold 13 500 units in roughly 2 weeks. That’s ~6 times better than the Xbox One version (released simultaneously), but still far behind the PlayStation 4 one. However, that’s no big surprise: it was released last year after all, and it’s been selling non-stop since then. It will be interesting to see how much the Nintendo Switch version will be able to cross the gap with the PlayStation 4 version.
Mario Tennis Aces is also off to a great start, with 25 600 units sold in about 3 weeks. While Hobby Consolas does not provide sales data for it, there’s little doubt it’s much better than Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash at launch, on Wii U.
But the real surprise this time around is Octopath Traveler, which is off to a really strong debut. It sold no less than 11 700 units in just 3 days: a remarkable performance for a JRPG in the country. No doubt both Square-Enix and Nintendo are pretty happy about this, as they seemingly were not expecting such strong sales right out of the gate (or there wouldn’t have been any shortages).
Finally, we have MotoGP 18 with 5 570 units sold across all platforms, but only 600 units on Nintendo Switch… nearly 8 times less than the PlayStation 4 version, and barely better than the Xbox One version (which is hardly an achievement). Hopefully for motorbike racing game fans, this will be enough for Milestones to keep releasing new games on the platform!
