Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu Sales: W49, 2019 (Dec 02 - Dec 08)

I'm starting to think that Nintendo is intentionally limiting stock or something.  3-4 weeks in a row with nearly the exact same sales?

This is not a Switch Top 10, this is a general Top 10 which happens to be all Switch. Damn!! Has this ever happened before?

DS did it a couple of times.

Updated the OP with the Top 30



Switch - 23
PS4 - 7

I remember an all top 10 DS but I don't know if the whole top 30 was this lopsided.

You guys have short memories, this isnt even the first time this year we had an all Switch top 10

That's horrible for Level-5, because Yokai Watch has selling poorly on Switch and the PS4 version didn't even chart...

Now's the time for Nintendo to partner with them and by that statement I mean outright buy them while they're getting cheaper :P

  • Smash surpasses 1M
  • Ring Fit Adventure enters top 10
  • Last year Switch's top 10 games sold >1M in Week 51 with the top three being Smash >450K, SMP >150K, PLG >140K
  • This year the top 3 games will be Pokemon Sword/Shield, Ring Fit Adventure & Luigi's Mansion 3.

Week 52 Prediction

  • With enough stock Ring Fit Adventure is top selling game >350K 
  • Pokemon Sword/Shield >300K takes to the top spot if Nintendo doesn't supply enough Ring Fit Stock
  • Luigi's Mansion 3 is only other Switch game >100K
  • Top 10 games end up selling >1.1M if Ring Fit stock is there, >950K if Ring Fit Stock sales are below 200K


Because Animal Crossing is a big deal for Japan I decided to do some digging how much time went by until a console got its release
And Switch has the latest game besides the N64 where data is sparse

Hardware is from shipments of the previous quarter before release. FW is from Famitsu (GameDataLibrary)

Gamecube -> Animal Crossing - 91 days | HW 450k+? - FW 92.568

DS -> Wild World - 356 days | HW 3.63M - FW 335.425

3DS -> New Leaf - 621 days | HW 7.94M - FW 721.786

Wii -> City Folk - 719 days | HW 6.91M - FW 303.204

Switch -> New Horizons - 1113 days | HW 11M+? - FW ???

N64 -> Animal Crossing - 1756 days | HW 5M? - FW ???

It was to be expected that Switch wouldn't match last year's Smash week but still good numbers. PS4 finally bounces back but fails to get a title in the Top 10.

Is Yo-kai Watch 4++ a "deluxe" version of Yo-kai Watch 4? Either way, the game not making the Top 10 doesn't bode well for the series.

Honestly, the series is so overmilked, that I would be shocked if it won't die off completely in the next 3 years or so.
