Gaming sales were particularly strong in Japan last week. With the Obon holiday in full swing, it’s a good sign. Hardware and software both outdid last year’s Obon, and Media Create has more on that front.

Splatoon 2 and Dragon Quest XI made major contributions to the overall software sales. The two games sold 88,000 copies and 208,000 copies respectively (the latter figure is Dragon Quest’s 3DS and PlayStation 4 sales combined).

Japan just had one of its best weeks in a long while in terms of gaming sales. Dragon Quest XI finally launched to huge success, and Nintendo shipping out a steady supply of Switch units also helped.

Console-wise, the sales of all 3DS systems combined sold 417.62 percent more than last week. Again, part of this was due to the release of Dragon Quest XI. Square Enix also put out a special Liquid Metal Slime New 2DS XL design, which was no doubt purchased by many consumers.
