Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido Has Disappointing Japanese Launch

Posted by at 12:57 pm on June 14, 2018

Last week, Nintendo’s latest creation Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido launched on both Switch and 3DS. The game is an action-puzzle mash-up with an incredibly high level of polish and a great story mode but the initial sales figures for the game are shockingly low.

In Japan – the home nation of both Nintendo and sushi, no less – the game only managed to shift 5,235 copies on Switch and 2,392 copies on 3DS in its first week, combining for a total of 7,627 across the two systems. To put that into perspective, ARMS – another of Nintendo’s brand new franchises introduced for the system – managed to sell 100,652 copies in the same initial time period.

Even though Sushi Striker was the new release of the week, Nintendo’s other evergreen titles still sold more copies despite some of them being over a year old. Splatoon 2 sold 13,423 copies (which included hardware bundles), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sold 10,063, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze sold 9,528, and even launch title Zelda: Breath of the Wild still shifted 6,516, which is more than Sushi Striker on Switch alone.
