Pro Yakyuu Famista Returns sold nearly 26,000 copies during its first week on the Japanese market. That may not seem like much, but the game actually did quite well.

Media Create reports that the first week sell-through rate for Pro Yakyuu Famista Returns was 88.72 percent. The previous title in the series, Pro Baseball Famista 2011, sold 13,000 units in its first week with a sell-through rate of 27.64 percent.

Although it has been roughly four and a half years since that and the interval between releases has been wide, the initial sales of the new 3DS game are double when compared to Famista 2011. Also, as the sell-through is very high, many shops have sold out. There is the favorable timing that Pro Baseball Climax Series is being held and the Jikkyo Powerful Pro Baseball series doesn’t see a regular yearly entry this year, so it can be considered that Famista Returns attracts the demand from baseball game fans.

This week’s expanded Japanese software sales are as follows:

01./06. [3DS] Yo-Kai Watch Busters: Red Cat Team / White Dog Squad (Level 5) {2015.07.11} (¥4.968) – 28.244 / 1.627.659 (-14%)

Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon debuted in Japan on September 17. During its first few days on the market (about half a week), the game sold 152,000 copies. Sales tracker Media Create reports that Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon saw a sell-through rate of 61.09 percent.

Compared to previous Mystery Dungeon titles, the new 3DS game performed better than Gates to Infinity. That game released in November 2012, and sold 121,000 copies for a 34.31 sell-through of initial stock.

Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon had 94,000 pre-orders, which was around the same range as the previous entry (95,000 pre-orders), showing the series has the loyal support of long time fans. Also, judging by the lack of growth in 3DS sales, Media Create believes it can be assumed that the majority of the userbase already had the system before the game came out as opposed to buying it for the game.

Splatoon has outsold Mario Kart 8 in Japan when lining up the launches of the two games. Through week 18, Splatoon has sold 681,495 copies. That’s compared to Mario Kart 8’s sales of 678,250 units during the same time frame. Apparently, Splatoon is also Japan’s fastest-selling Wii U game.
