Ace Combat 7 and Nintendo Switch Top Japanese Market According to Media Create

Media Create released its weekly hardware and software charts related to the Japanese market between Jan. 14 and Jan. 20. Last week saw the release of quite a few games, so the charts are quite interesting.

Below you can see the software chart. As usual, the second number for each game represents lifetime sales, when applicable.

  1. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown – PS4 – 202,379/NEW
  2. New Super Mario Bros U. Deluxe – Switch – 88,840/255,143

  4. Yakuza 4 – PS4 – 18,440/NEW
  5. Super Mario Party – Switch – 16,752/971,945
  6. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Switch – 15,062/2,085,952
  7. Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee – Switch – 12,351/1,427,298

  18. Judgment – PS4 – 4,527/244,820
  19. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – PS4 – 4,341/524,140
  20. Taiko no Tatsujin Drum’n Fun – Switch –  3,720/294,679

Below you can check out the hardware chart for the same period:

  1. Switch: 71,139
  2. PS4: 9,505
  3. PS4 Pro: 6,958
  4. New 2DS XL: 3,767
  5. PS Vita: 1,755
  6. New 3DS XL: 1,514
  7. 2DS: 158
  8. Xbox One X: 94
  9. Xbox One: 24

On the hardware side, while most platforms were affected by the usual post-holiday slump, the Switch keeps going quite strong, which is quite interesting.

On the software side, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown makes a triumphant entrance with over 200,000 copies sold, which is very good for this kind of semi-niche game. Looks like Japanese fans were hungry for a return to Strangereal.

On the other hand, Yakuza 4 made a mediocre debut on the Media Create charts, but that’s normal since Japanese gamers aren’t keen on HD remasters that add very little or nothing at all to a game, unless they belong to massive franchises.

Interestingly, Dragon Quest Builders 2 seems to be doing slightly better on Nintendo Switch than on PS4, and Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition shows the opposite performance.
