Spain: latest video games sales (Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Skyrim, DOOM)

In its latest issue, Hobby Consolas shared some more sales data for the video game market in Spain, and there’s some pretty juicy data for games on Nintendo platforms. Data below is for Week 46 to Week 49 (November 13th to December 10th).

Let’s start with Xenoblade Chronicles 2, which is off to a great start in Spain. According to the magazine, it sold no less than 15 094 units during the first week (December 1st to December 10th), with 10 023 units for the stand-alone edition, and 5 071 units for the Limited Edition.

It’s certainly impressive that the latter managed to sell half as well as the former, and it’s certainly not Nintendo that’s going to complain about that (since their margins are higher on Limited Editions).

With such a strong debut, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is poised to sell at least 20 000 units before the end of the year. Unfortunately, Hobby Consolas did not provide any data for Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles X, which would have allowed us to make a comparison with them. But one thing’s for sure: Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is off to a great start in Spain.

Next: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. It sold a total of 6 767 units on all platforms combined, with the Nintendo Switch version accounting for only 1 627 units. That’s pretty low, but that was to be expected given the platform is yet to attract the family/kids audience (that’s something Tatsumi Kimishima talked about during the latest meeting with investors).

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim may be an old game from 2011, already available on many (more popular) platforms, but it still sold pretty well on Nintendo Switch, with 6 423 units sold between launch and December 10th (roughly a month). Same for DOOM, which was less popular with “only” 3 528 units sold with one more week on the market, but still sold a respectable amount.

Quite interestingly, the Nintendo Switch version of L.A. Noire was the most popular… though by only 209 units exactly (and not counting digital sales, obviously). The game sold 3 752 units on all platforms combined, and 1 840 units on Nintendo Switch specifically.

Finally, Hobby Consolas report that FIFA 18 sold 516 908 units since launch, but on all platforms combined (no platform breakdown is provided).
