Yoshi’s Crafted World Sold Only 36% Of Its Initial Shipment In Japan

It also didn’t have much effect on Switch hardware sales.

Yoshi’s Crafted World topped sales charts in Japan and the UK alike upon release; however, at the very least in Japan, it could have sold even more. According to Media Create’s follow-up report regarding the game’s performance, Yoshi’s Crafted World sold only 36% of its initial shipment in week one in Japan.

Given that it sold over 50,000 units in the country, this means that the initial shipment was actually closer to 150,000 units. It remains to be seen if it will be enough to meet all lifetime sales necessities for the game in Japan, or if it will sell through that shipment and need more copies.

Media Create also reports—and this is something that was evident from the initial sales charts—that Switch sales did not rise from Yoshi’s Crafted World’s launch at all. This makes sense, I guess—though the game looks well-made, the Switch is hardly wanting for another sidescrolling platformer at the moment. If you hadn’t already picked up a Switch for New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, or Kirby Star Allies, I don’t think Yoshi’s Crafted World would have pushed you over the edge.
