New information from sales tracker Media Create indicates that gaming sales in Japan decreased during the second week of January, which is generally designated as the end of the “holiday season”.

As Siliconera points out, children usually spend their New Year’s money during January’s first week. This is accompanied by a drop in hardware and software sales in later weeks.

As expected, software sales lowered to 62.91 percent compared to the same period in January 2014. 3DS led the market in terms of holiday software sales, and the industry as a whole was affected when numbers for the portable dropped. There were also no significant titles during the second week of January. Kirby Triple Deluxe debuted last January and sold 214,000 copies in its first week.

According to Media Create, gaming software sales in Japan during the end-of-year holiday period came in at 10.854 million units. The sales tracker calculated end-of-year sales based on the seven weeks from November 17th, 2014 to January 4th, 2015.

Software sales in Japan stacked up similarly to the same period the year prior (100.36% of 2013). Youkai Watch 2 (2.447 million units) and Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire (2.591 million units) accounted for 45 percent of total Japanese software sales during the end-of-year holiday period.

Wii U software sales were 112.95 percent of 2013. It was the only system aside from the 3DS to experience an increase in software sales.

Overall hardware sales on the Japanese market during the end-of-year season stood at 1.74 million units. Hardware decreased to 83.42 percent of the same period from 2013. The 3DS dipped a bit to 93.96 percent of 2013, which could be because most of its popular software sold to existing 3DS owners rather than new buyers.

During Christmas week, 1,517,000 games were sold in Japan. Media Create says that number is 79.45 percent compared to sales during Christmas week in 2013. Sales are also down compared to 2012 (1,701,000 units) and 2011 (1,621,000 units).

Gaming sales during the year-end season weren’t entirely underwhelming. All three versions of Youkai Watch 2 were top performers having sold a combined total of 5.079 million units. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has sold 2.34 million copies and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS has sold 2 million.
