Japan Top Weekly Video Game Ranking: June 29, 2020 ~ July 5, 2020

Sales of Animal Crossing: New Horizons have been on a downtrend for the past few weeks. For the period between June 29 to July 5, sales have plunged 24% for the title, the biggest drop for the 5-week period since June 1, 2020. As a result, number of copies sold in Japan have dropped from 70,000 copies the week before to 53,000 copies.

The Top 10 saw a new title breaching its rank for the week with the recently released Catherine: Full Body for the Nintendo Switch. It sits at number 9, debuting at almost 7,000 copies sold in Japan. For the most part, other titles in the Top 10 has experienced weaker sales, except for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (No. 4), Splatoon 2 (No. 6) and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (No. 8) which saw sales climbing for the week.

It is thanks to the amazing folks back at Famitsu that we get to see these charts on a weekly basis, so be sure to head over to their site here and show them some love!

As for sales of hardware, which is obtainable here, units sold have dropped across the board with only Xbox One X and New 3DS LL experiencing a rise. Other than that, Famitsu has noted in their post that the lifetime sales for Xbox One S is 21,377 units. However, it has previously recorded the number of lifetime units sold for the machine to be around 90,000 and above. Please see previous sales chart available on this blog here (check out sales from June 1). I have double checked with the posts that I have delivered on this blog as well as Famitsu’s original, and since the previous week recorded the lifetime sale for the unit as 93,361, I have updated the summary below to 93,379 instead of the figure listed in Famitsu’s post.

Sales of Hardware

1. Switch / 38,428 units (↓42.72%) (total sold: 11,736,068 units)
2. Switch Lite / 13,822 units (↓48.24%) (total sold: 2,366,495 units)
