Pokkén Tournament Has Outsold Street Fighter 5 In Japan

Pokkén Tournament has been met with a positive start in Japan, with launch weekend sales seeing the Wii U exclusive sell 69,675 copies. But, the gloves are off.

That has seen Bandai Namco Entertainment’s Pokémon brawler already outpace Capcom’s Street Fighter V. That’s according to Media Create, whose weekly sales data last saw Street Fighter V chart a fortnight ago when lifetime sales sat at 59,553 copies.

In the weeks that have followed, it has since fallen out of the chart but we can use how many copies the lowest charting games have sold as an estimation. That saw Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire shifting 4,088 copies between 7th – 13th March, and SEGA’s Yakuza 0 selling 4,257 copies this past week. As a best case scenario, that would see Capcom’s latest sat at below 68,000 copies.

Having slammed to the top of the software chart, Pokkén Tournament also allowed for Wii U hardware sales to triple, which, in the past week, saw 12,998 consoles sold in comparison to 4,629 the week before.

Pokkén Tournament is now available exclusively for Wii U worldwide.
