FIFA 18 On Nintendo Switch Outsold The PlayStation 4 Version In Japan

Recommended Videos

FIFA is a series traditionally known as a staple brand on the PlayStation line of consoles, but surprisingly, the Nintendo Switch version of FIFA 18 managed to outsell the PlayStation 4 version in Japan. [Thanks, Nintendo Soup]


According to Dengeki Online, the PlayStation 4 version sold 77,892 copies since launch until it dropped out of range of Top 50, while the Switch version has managed to chart on the Top 50 chart week after week, at a recorded 89,329 copies sold. In the past 3 weeks, the number of copies sold actually outnumbered launch sales in two of the weeks.


Here is a chart with the week-by-week sales (going by Dengeki Online numbers, also note that ‘Out of range’ has been given a value of zero for simplicity’s sake, as it means it didn’t sell enough to reach Top 50 at all):


Week Nintendo Switch PlayStation 4
1 13,244 50,325
2 5,218 11,250
3 3,806 6,847
4 2,644 3,459
5 2,344 2,511
6 2,000 1,933
7 1,833 1,567
8 1,711 Out of range
9 2,278 Out of range
10 2,356 Out of range
11 4,256 Out of range
12 6,683 Out of range
13 16,006 Out of range
14 11,078 Out of range
15 13,872 Out of range
Total 89,329 77,892


Previously, we reported on EA announcing that they were going to take a wait-and-see approach with the Switch after FIFA 18.
