First week sales for the Switch version of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze were reported from Japan this week. Between April 29 and May 3, the game sold nearly 90,000 copies.
That’s a significant increase compared to the original 2014 release. On Wii U, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze sold just 35,000 copies in its first week.
The sell-through rate is also more favorable. The game sold through 65% of its initial shipment on Switch, according to Dengeki. In contrast, the Wii U version had a sell-through rate of just 35%.
