Source: Media Create for Pokémon Diamond and Famitsu for Gundam True Odyssey.

Famitsu sell-through for combined version of Pokémon Diamond / Pearl was 95,4%.

Also, why didn't anybody remember me of June predictions? Have to get those running now (already one week late).

I knew I was forgetting something, although after checking my last month results I don't know if I'm in the mood for more predictions lol

That's crazy. Now we just need a hint at the North American numbers. We know it charted at least in the UK after Witcher 3. Then there is this. The big unknown now is NA and it's amiibo numbers.

I think 106k is the sum of all three Splatoon amiibos, with the triple pack counting 3x? It's confusing.

It's still an impressive number, for a new IP to sell as well as the Nintendo staple. Individually, it's 32k for each character which could have been more if not nearly sold out.

I would assume the NA sales are pretty strong too, looks like this is the beginning of a new franchise :)

That 106k number for Splatoon Amiibo counts the 3-packs as 3 figures for a total number of figures. So, just over 35k of each including packs and singles.

Yeah, the way is written doesn't make it very clear.

Edit: seems clear ^
 
we should consider, regarding previous Amiibo sales, that they became a "phenomenon" in 2015, the first batch I remember I could see Villager still 3 weeks after the release, batch 2 (Rosalina & Co.) was more quick to get sold-out, batch 3 (Sheik & Co.) was sold-out on D1 (I remember going to Yodobashi Camera Ikebukuro at 12:00 and I found nothing, shops open at 10:00 - 10:30 FYI)

so maybe December numbers are not so high, we should have at least January or both Jan/Feb to have a better estimate about Amiibo sales.

Given the sellthrough rate I don't think comparing it to more recent numbers will teach us much and we already know that Amiibo sales in Japan have been pretty meh.

Are there any big releases coming up that might attract mindshare if the restock doesn't happen quickly enough? Or is the releases slate bare?

Like...Wiii U mindshare or mindshare period.

Yoshi in July I believe.

DBZ and FE in the next couple of weeks I think.

EDIT:
Actually, I don't think this DBZ will be big going by comgnet.

But then again, DBZ Super premeries July 5th so maybe it'll get boosted legs.

except for December 2014 we have other numbers?

First Day Sell-Through {2015.06.04}

[PS4] Natsuiro High School: Seishun Hakusho - 60%
[PS3] Natsuiro High School: Seishun Hakusho - 30%

[3DS] Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland - almost 40%

[3DS] Stella Glow - almost 40%

[PSV] Shiren The Wanderer 5 Plus - 50%

3ds releases not hot but not bad - thought it might have been worse. Hoping Shiren does well, good target shipment. Natsuiro likely to be selling more on new gen.

Thanks as always hiska-kun for the first day sellthroughs. I find sellthrough targets publishers and retailers have set to be as interesting as the overall sales.

I think you are correct. Q1 amiibo shipments were equal to Q4 shipments.
