Extremely solid start.
As long as it doesn't turn out that they overshipped, it should pass 5 mil by the quarterly report.



Major Switch Titles Launch Aligned

2021 predictions:

  • Switch - 27m
  • PS5 - 15.5m
  • Xbox Series - 10m

Koei must have jumped with joy at the prospect of being given the position of the main holiday title for a platform like Switch and in one of it's most dominant years as well, for DW4 any idea what FW was for it?



Wonder what the sell-through will look like, I'm thinking they will ship 5 million EOY if the sell-through is good

Currently for November its:
#5 on Amazon.com behind Just Dance;
#2 on Amazon.fr behind New Horizon;
#12 on Amazon.de behind Ring Fit, New Horizon, AC:V, MK8D & FIFA
#n/a on Amazon.co.uk but we know it sold around 30K in the UK during it's launch week

723k on PS2 FW in Japan

3k on Xbox FW in Japan

We dont have numbers for the west afaik but it also released one month later in NA and a few months later in PAL.

The sheer fact that AOC may actually hit 5m for the series really brings to light the momentum given to the game as the flagship holiday title for Switch using the BOTW lore especially with the fact that we've had Warrior titles based on other popular IPs like DQ and FE as well in recent years. The stars really aligned for Koei with this one.



You might even say it's unprecedented for a Musou game

Did some searching for NPD.

From Zhugeex (A warriors fan :D ) ~2016

It took 4 months for Hyrule Warriors to get to 370k (Wii U)
It took 4 months for Dynasty Warriors 3 to get to 207k (PS2)
It took 4 months for Dynasty Warriors 4 to get to 275k (PS2)
It took 4 months for Samurai Warriors to get to 113k (PS2)
It took 4 months for Dynasty Warriors 5 to get to 149k (PS2)


It took 25 months for Dynasty Warriors 3 to exceed 390k+ (on PS2) (over 450k+ LTD)
It took 13 months for Dynasty Warriors 4 to exceed 390k+ (on PS2) (over 550k+ LTD)
No other Musou game has exceeded 370k.



That is excellent news. A big release for the Warriors series.
