Bandai Namco games sell amazingly well on Switch. Its biggest fighting game, Tekken 7, not porting on Swiitch is a big mystery.

It's not a mystery at all

I'm shocked that RFA sold 64k in one week, and it's basically a year after release at this point.  How does this compare with first week sales?  Does anyone have first week sales of RFA handy?

68.497 

Thanks.  It's kind of incredible that RFA first week sales are not too much higher than this week's sales.

If Bandai Namco do not want instant money with less effort is not a mystery, therefore, it's a big joke.



RFA gonna pass Minecraft next week, Mario Party in a week or two, and BotW in probably 4 weeks! RFA gonna cruise in to the top few spots for Switch soon. The 2 million mark and then Odyssey would be next, almost certainly both achievable by end of the year. Though I suppose it's possibly Mario 3D All-Stars passes RFA for a little while depending on how big that is in Japan.

Damn, RFA at 1.48 million right now. If it averages 50k a week the next two months, that puts it at 1.88 mil by end of october, Then let's say it does 70k/week in november, puts it at 2.16 mil by end of November, which I guess is roughly around where Odyssey is now, then let's say 100k/wk the first four weeks in December, and maybe 20k the final week of the year, that'd put it at 2.58 million end of year. And that all seems pretty reasonable at this point. RFA lifetime sales in Japan could get pretty crazy in the next 4 months and put it easily in 6th place for Switch.



Around the Network

Don’t forget people, there is roughly 200k sales missing for RFA cuz of mynintendo store



How much did RFA sell on its first week?

  • Nintendo and Pokemon Co. had over 10.7M sales on the Switch
  • Top performing game was Minecraft with 512.614 sales
  • Bandai despite only releasing about half of their games on the Switch stillhad a great year, Fishing Spirits with 326.119 was their Top performing Switch game. They had 4 other games with over 100K Sales
  • Square is next thanks to DQXI which made a little over half their sales, DQB2 being the other game with over 100K sales
  • Level 5 is in 6th place but YW5's performance was a big failure for the studio 
  • Capcom is missing from the list selling less than Koei, Konami, Marvelous, Level-5 and Sega last year

PS4
01. Square Enix - 1.352.209 <14,64%>
02. Capcom - 1.316.122 <14,25%>
03. Sony Interactive Entertainment - 1.284.234 <13,91%>

  • Square tops the list thanks to Kingdom Hearts III with its 838.661 sales, next up is DQB2 with 100K 
  • Capcom sales are basically three games - MHW with 443.388, RE2 376.315 & DMCV 198.182
  • Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown , Super Robot Wars T, Jump Force & Code Vein were the top-performing PS4 Bandai titles, it will be interesting if AC's & CV end up getting a late port on the Switch, I doubt Bandai is happy with their sales. They just ported Jump Force which will probably end up doing over 50K in Japan by the end of the year.

Top 30

NSW 22 (9 of which are third party)
PS4 8 (7 of which are third party)

Switch has 9/16 = 56% of third party games on the top 30 this week.  Japanese third party titles that are multiplat seem to be performing better overall on the Switch.  The Switch versions have better first week sales, and we can look at eBaseball Powerful Pro which has been on the chart for several weeks and see that the Switch version is now selling over double the weekly amount of the PS4 version.  On the other hand NBA 2K21 launched significantly higher on the PS4.  Overall, Switch seems to be the prefered platform for Japanese third party titles, although even in Japan, PS4 seems preferred for Western third party games.

10. [NSW] eBaseball Powerful Pro Yakyuu 2020 – 7,318 / 215,075
20. [PS4] eBaseball Powerful Pro Yakyuu 2020 – 3,565 / 177,864

16. [NSW] Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition – 5,138 / 54,094
23. [PS4] Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition – 3,034 / 33,203

21. [NSW] Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions – 3,285 / 19,963
24. [PS4] Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions – 2,994 / 16,882
