Interesting seeing the 3ds and Vita get boosts but not the Switch, although it's still selling the same as last week.

Party got a nice boost.

Where's Onimusha for the Switch? I can't believe it didn't chart. Unless it released after these dates?

Insane numbers for Nintendo. If the Switch performs similarly next year, it should cross the 10 million mark by the end of 2019.

Onimusha Switch didn't chart in top 20 (<10K). Probably will see it in Famitsu or Dengeki.

Damn. I'm honestly surprised it did better on the PS4.
Looks like it sold 20.4K on PS4 and 8.4K on Switch according to Famitsu. Well there a lot of other titles to buy on Switch right now, and it looks like the series was basically only on PlayStation before (mostly PS2 and a GBA spinoff) We'll see. Switch software can have legs.

Nice Dragon Quest Builders 2 sales, split almost evenly across the platforms too. Were there shortages so people went back to buying Minecraft (+75%!) as an alternative or is that a normal boost?

Just a normal holiday boost for Minecraft. Kids like Minecraft and it's appropriately priced. No shortage for DQB2. 40-60% sellthrough according to Famitsu. The problem with Builders is its price. At that high price it's not very accessible so you mostly get Dragon Quest fans and not kids. It's actually more expensive than Builders 1 b/c there's no Vita version this time.

Ultimate Question is will the Vita hit 6 million before discontinuation?

Nintendo seem to always do well that it isn't shocking these days. Great Products will always sell great.

I would have expected a Dragon Quest and Minecraft like game to make much more than that honestly.

Is there a reason why DQ isn't as predominant as it used to be?

Dragon Quest 11 still sold 3M across 3DS & PS4, even when it was working with a declining 3DS in 2017 (probably would've easily passed 3M on 3DS alone if it was a couple of years earlier).

Also DQBuilders 1 opened at nearly 350-400K across its 3 platforms and sold over 700K. DQB2's opening is a huge decline thus far, probably because the entry price is even higher (no Vita version - 7800 Yen is over twice the price of Minecraft at 3600 Yen). Keep in mind Minecraft is for kids, so the low price helps a lot. The day 1 supposedly breaking bugs probably didn't help either.

Many thanks on your input!

The 3DS version sounds pretty impressive. I heard it streams some of the game contents onto the Cartridge years ago. Is this true?

Ah fair enough. Did 2 improve on 1 in anyway? I heard that the first game has no online but I can't remember if this was added or not.

If it didn't, then that is even more inpressive for first game!

DQ11 is a totally different game on 3DS with the same plot. You can play it as 3D or an old school 2D with turn based battles. Square basically made 3 versions of DQ11 with PS4 3d, 3ds 3d, and 3ds 2d. The DQ 10 MMO was streaming on 3ds, DQB2 had multiplayer iirc and online.

(
Yeah! I think Sony knows this number and would want to hit that 6 million number as much as we all do.
On MC I could see it eventually happening given it's 38K units if that many are still lying around in stores. It's already hard for publishers to get Vita carts anymore and I doubt Sony cares anymore sadly.

The DQB2 sales are a little sad to see. It is a pretty good game.
~336k so far seems fine to me for a spin off of DQ. Do DQ spin offs regularly do so much better than that? Maybe something like the best selling Dragon Quest Monsters or similar caliber titles but othewise? Seems like it'll get 500k easy which would put it to DQ Joker level of sales? Hopefully it will sell similarly well in the rest of the world.

Yeah. The drop from Builders 1 seems to be around a similar ratio as the drop from Heroes II compared to Heroes.
