Media Create Sales (Feb 19 – Feb 25) – NS Sales Steady, Bayo 2 (NS) Drop Less Than Anticipated [DETAILS/CHARTS]

 

(Numbers are JPN Only)

In this the 52nd week of the NS on the market the NS sold 39,696 bringing LTD sales to 3,757,827 and YTD sales to 445,208. The units sold are flat from last week, unfortunate they haven’t started increasing stock levels yet, but at least the drops have come to an end (for now at least). About a year on the market now, just a few more days.

Bayonetta 2 (NS) saw sales drop -43% this week to 5,443 for a total of 14,975. This gives a bit of hope for the legs of the NS version of Bayonetta 2 as the Wii U version had a drop of -82%, dropping from a much better first week total of 38,828 all the way down to 6,970

 

NINTENDO 3DS FIRST TO SURPASS 5M

In addition, the NDS has finally caught back up with the NS and will almost certainly stay ahead for the foreseeable future.
