Yoshi’s Crafted World Underperforms for Nintendo

Yoshi’s Crafted World released for the Nintendo Switch on March 29th, 2019. According to Media Create, the game only sold 53,327 units in its debut week and sold 35.96% of the initial shipment. Media Create is a website that gathers data analytics from Japanese Gaming Market.

The game did sell better than its predecessors such as Yoshi’s Woolly World in 2015 for the Wii U which sold 31,000 units in its first week. It also sold better than Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World on 3DS in 2017 which sold roughly 40,000 units in its first week. For clarification, both predecessors may have sold poorly due to the systems they were on. The Wii U sold extremely poorly (only 13.5 million units during its lifecycle) and was an unpopular system for Nintendo. The Switch has sold over 14 million units by the end of 2017. The 3DS is also reaching the end of its life cycle and more people were excited to play on the Switch which had released on March 3rd, 2017.

Poochy, why don’t people love us?

Metacritic score wise the game is pretty solid with an overall 80% for reviewers. The game also was the top of the sales in Japan according to Famitsu (Japanese Game Magazine/site). I believe Yoshi and the gameplay aren’t mass appealing compared to Nintendo’s bigger titles.
