Game Builder Garage sales in Japan via Famitsu

Famitsu shared the latest estimated sales figures from its retail trackers that show that Game Builder Garage was the bestselling title of the week in its Japanese debut. Other major titles that launched during the week of June 6 to June 13, 2021 included Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection, and Guilty Gear -Strive-.

According to Famitsu’s numbers, Game Builder Garage, the new Nintendo Switch game that lets you make games, opened with an estimate of 71,241 units in retail sales. That was enough to put it well ahead in the lead as #1 title of the week, more than tripling the #2 Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, which sold 20,889 retail copies in its opening. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was the third new title release of the week, and it sold 14,663 copies. The other two new games were Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection at #6 with 12,210 copies and Guilty Gear -Strive- at #8 with 11,722 units sold. It’s actually the first time in a while that we had a top 10 that wasn’t mostly dominated by Switch titles, but the one thing that definitely did dominate the chart was the impressive debut of Game Builder Garage.

When it comes to hardware sales, Nintendo Switch sold 61,766 units plus an additional 16,551 Switch Lites for a total of 78,317 Switch consoles sold in the week. Check out the rest of the sales figures from Famitsu below:
