Shenmue III debuted in fourth place in the Japanese charts last week, selling less than 18,000 units in a week dominated by Nintendo products.
According to data from Famitsu -- sourced by Gematsu -- Ys Net's long-awaited sequel sold 17,857 on PlayStation 4 in the week ended November 24, 2019. Shenmue III launched on November 19, so it had all but one day of the week to reach that total.
As is often the case in Japan, the week's sales were dominated by the Switch, with Pokémon Sword and Shield holding on to the top spot with more than 382,000 sales. As VGC pointed out, this puts The Pokémon Company's latest beyond two million sold in the space of just ten days.
However, while Shenmue III was never likely to topple Pokémon, less than 18,000 units may be lower than publisher Deep Silver had hoped for from a homegrown Japanese IP on its only console platform.
