Dragon Quest Builders 2 crossed 200k on Switch. Both versions combined are a little bit under 400k.

Initial shipment should be sold without trouble and the drop from the 1st game is smaller that we feared.

It's The Battle Cats, really popular series. Mobile game recently reached 41m donwloads:

It's also much cheaper and only available via eShop, so no wonder it's charting above Smash (which is expensive, and also available at retail). You can expect it to rank at the top of the Switch chart for a long while (I mean, the 3DS game hasn't left the Top 10 in ages).
Battle Cats on the japanese 3DS eshop sold more than half a million units.

Switch dropped to 31k last year from 160k? Did it have supply issues? If not, I'm guessing we will see a 50k week, unless ssbu momentum and the release of nsmbud will bring it to 60-70k.

2007: Week 2
1.) Nintendo Wii - 93,708 | 195,331 | 289,039 | 1,208,682

This showed a really good drop, but I don't know if the Wii had supply problems in japan early on.

2.) Nintendo DS Lite - 89,287 | 344,878 | 434,165 | 7,857,489
3.) PlayStation Portable - 48,804 | 118,186 | 166,990 | 4,699,119
4.) PlayStation 3 - 25,531 | 69,944 | 95,475 | 553,033
5.) PlayStation 2 - 22,663 | 52,037 | 74,700 | 20,229,559
6.) Xbox 360 - 9,035 | 18,235| 27,270 | 291,972

2008: Week 2

Hardware - This Week | Last Week | YTD | LTD
1. NDS - 97,369 | 266,568 | 363,937 | 21,536,988
2. PSP - 96,159 | 218,234 | 314,393 | 7,915,987
3. WII - 84,530 | 207,797 | 292,327 | 4,908,487
4. PS3 - 38,907 | 64,183 | 103,090 | 1,744,766
5. PS2 - 14,499 | 32,010 | 46,509 | 20,973,546
6. 360 - 4,690 | 9,763 | 14,453 | 521,794

Wii also had a good drop in 2008, PSP similarily showed a good drop in 2008.
Overall, I literally have no idea how the Switch will do in week 2. Like Chris said a lot earlier in this thread, this week will determine how good January will go.

It think 100k is a lot for week 2, but with how popular Smash is, it's possible that it could still carry the Switch a bit longer. Also this year the weeks starts a day earlier.

Famitsu Hardware (same day placed holidays years):

3DS Week 50, 2012 (10 Dec - 16 Dec) - 333.409
3DS Week 51, 2012 (17 Dec - 23 Dec) - 433.788 (+30%)
3DS Week 52, 2012 (24 Dec - 30 Dec) - 266.790 (-38%)
3DS Week 1, 2013 (31 Dec - 6 Jan) - 305.690 (+15%)
3DS Week 2, 2013 (7 Jan - 13 Jan) - 105.112 (-66%)

Vs

Switch Week 50, 2018 (10 Dec - 16 Dec) - 285.513
Switch Week 51, 2018 (17 Dec - 23 Dec) - 300.661 (+5%)
Switch Week 52, 2018 (24 Dec - 30 Dec) - 186.806 (-38%)
Switch Week 1, 2019 (31 Dec - 6 Jan) - 225.698 (+21%)
Switch Week 2, 2019 (7 Jan - 13 Jan) - ???

75k seems reasonable (-66%).

We marvel at how fast some games sell, but I wonder what the slowest to 2 million is.

Below is what I have from the MC data I've collected.


Regarding game titles that are often split between multiple skus:

* Some of the db's records have weekly data for the group and only select data for individual components -- "Pokemon Diamond / Pearl" was top on this list because it only listed one entry with a 5.8M LTD 1563 days in, but that doesn't say when it crossed 2M, so that record was deleted.

* Some of the db's records have weekly data for the individual components but only select data for the group. Pokemon X and Y fit this description, where they mostly only list yearly totals for X and for Y on their own.

(edit: hah, swap the above two bullet point descriptions, maybe it's time to hit the bed!)

* JJSlone put up an example earlier (post #311) of a grouped title that lasted longer than anything listed below. In my data set, the three skus of Nintendogs were only listed separately, and the highest of those didn't break 800k. There are doubtless other examples that would qualify in the same way.

Additionally, anything listed in the last week of the year (likely the Week 51s of the first five of this list) were MC Top 1000 yearly results, and that means they might have hit 2M in any of the preceding 365 days of the year, so it's impossible to get an exacting list, regardless of the treatment of the data.

If you need to examine a specific game to see if it's up to snuff, look up its gid and use it like http://era.burner.camp/#g/9168 (that's the example for SSBU)

Remaining caveats:

* I picked Saturday when converting from Year/Week from the sales charts. I had to pick a day, and that was the least worst option, preventing potential negative ages.

* Yearly results in my db are listed as "week 99", so there's a quick routine in there that converts it to the last week of that particular year. WARNING: It's MySQL's last week of that year, which might not match up perfectly with MC weeks, but that shouldn't cause too much drift.


SELECT G.id as gid, C.name AS con, SUBSTRING(G.title, 1, 32) AS title, G.release, MIN(S.ltd) as ltd, S.year, IF(S.week = 99, 51, S.week) AS week, STR_TO_DATE(CONCAT(S.year, ' ', IF(S.week = 99, WEEK(CONCAT(S.year, '-12-31')), S.week), ' Saturday'),'%X %V %W') AS xoverdate, DATEDIFF(STR_TO_DATE(CONCAT(S.year, ' ', IF(S.week = 99, 51, S.week), ' Saturday'),'%X %V %W'), G.release) AS daysold from games G, sales S, consoles C where G.console_id = C.id AND S.game_id = G.id AND G.title NOT LIKE '%Software Sales%' AND ltd > 2000000 GROUP BY G.title ORDER BY daysold DESC;

...sorry, MySQL is a light hobby, not an educated career. Building absurdly powerful EPYC servers for scientists suits me much better on the career side. :D

Famitsu superior holidays tracker, media create superior rest of the year tracker :)

Those are even better sales with Famitsu, 132K for PS4 & 225K for Switch is pretty great. Also nice to see the Switch DQB2 cross 200K with PS4 version not too far behind. I wonder it'll be able to leg itself to about 500K LTD across the 2 platforms. While that'd be a drop from the first one, it'd less of a drop than I was expecting.

Yeah compared to other sequels this year this one is fairing relatively well in its current release schedule.

Builders 2 sold good in holidays, the drop won't be as high as looked. We'll see how it holds in January but Builders 1 had very weak legs and it shouldn't have problem to at least match them. There will be again a 200-300k decrease from first entry but things could be worse.

But Builders 2 has multiplayer, no ?

I think Builders 2 will have better legs than the first game. It can be a long-seller, like Minecraft.

Builders 2 escaped price collapse, not the decline. It will be out of charts in a matter of 2-3 months. Switch might hold a bit better but Minecraft will absorb it too In the end.
 
Battle Cats on the japanese 3DS eshop sold more than half a million units.
Oh yeah, we did get some actual data for this one. Fully expecting Switch game to sell at least that much, especially now that it has 2 players mode.

But Builders 2 has multiplayer, no ?

Not at the price it's sold, nope.
 
Looks like Dengeki expect Smash to outsell Splatoon 2 as early as mid-January (2.67m vs 2.88m as of this week), and become best-selling Switch game, based on the current sales trajectory of both games. Well, damn.

Of course, that's retail only, but since Smash most likely has high digital ratio, not sure digital will make that much of a difference when all is said and done.
 
Dengeki data for holiday season (Nov. 1 to Jan. 6):
  • Hardware: 2.59 million units (-3.4%) / 78.4 billion Yen (+10.4%)
  • Software: 9.22 million units (-6.6%) / 61.6 billion Yen (+5.7%)
  • Total: 140 billion Yen (+8.3%)
More revenue was generated due to the higher price of the games and consoles sold. 3rd year in a row that holiday sales are increasing (though only by revenue this time).

Nintendo Switch sales:

- Hardware +25.3%, to 1.86 million units. 72% market share.
- Software +98%, to 6.6 million units (+98%). 71.6% market share
- over 70% market share for Software + Hardware

Top 5 Software for the holiday season:
  1. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo): 2.67 million units
  2. [NSW] Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! / Let's Go, Eevee! (The Pokémon Company): 1.33 million units
  3. [NSW] Super Mario Party (Nintendo): 600 000 units
  4. [PS4] Judgement (SEGA): 240 000 units
  5. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft Japan): 240 000 units

Media Create will give the report for New Year's season but it won't be different from Dengeki. Switch had taken more than 70% of the market since Pokemon launched.
