Umihara Kawase BaZooKa! First Week Sales Data for Japan
« on: July 11, 2020, 05:40:46 AM »
I actually forgot to make a thread for this.

If I remember correctly, Umihara Kawase BaZooKa! Launched in Japan on May 28th 2020 for both PS4 and Switch at retail for ¥2800 or ¥3080 including tax.

Famitsu posted their Top 30 for the week covering May 25th to May 31st 2020. It was a week where the lowest ranked game was Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX for Switch which sold 1,778 copies for the week.

Surely a new game releasing at a cheaper price focused on multiplayer which features a YouTube streamer and has an eShop demo available could get the game into the Top 30 of Famitsu?

No. Neither of the PS4 and Switch versions of the game could get into the Top 30 so they could've sold anywhere between 0 to 1,777 copies for the week.

Note that neither of those games appeared in the Top 30 in later weeks.

This isn't too surprising to hear, given Fresh didn't sell that well either, and that it's basically a spin-off party game of a series that's never sold amazingly well anyway.  All I can say is, hopefully it still met Success's expectations.
