After the review of console sales in Japan in 2017, here are the top 10 best-selling games on the archipelago last year. Japan obliges, Nintendo remains well represented since 9 games out of 10 come from its consoles. Alone Dragon Quest XI on PS4 slips into the rankings with a 5th place and close to a million and a half copies sold.

If we had to learn a lesson from sales in 2017, it would certainly be that the Switch saved the year in terms of volumes, because its success brings 3 additional “millionaires”. It is also observed the sharp decline of Pokémon this year, since with “only” 2 million copies sold, the game is almost half as good as the Pokémon of the previous year. It must be admitted that this US & UL version is considered by many to be a relatively lazy vintage, while waiting for the Pokémon for the Switch which should meet with dazzling success. It’s a bit the same story for Dragon Quest XIwhose sales, despite a release on two media, are the lowest in the saga for a long time, despite the more than 3 million copies in total.

The rest of the ranking is made up of licenses that we are used to seeing top of the bill in Japan, between Mario games, Splatoon, or Zelda, without forgetting of course Pokémon which, despite this poor form, manages to adjudicate the throne of Japan, as he regularly does. It remains to be seen whether the ambitious Monster Hunter World will be able to upset the deal this year.

  1. Pokemon US & UL (3DS): 2,003,607
  2. Splatoon 2 (Switch): 1,752,096
  3. Dragon Quest XI (3DS): 1,744,603
  4. Monster Hunter XX (3DS): 1,684,991
  5. Dragon Quest XI (PS4): 1,336,180
  6. Super Mario Odyssey (Switch): 1,324,280
  7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch): 1,103,743
  8. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch): 688.044
  9. Pokemon Sun & Moon (3DS): 576.506
  10. Super Mario Maker (3DS): 423.076
