Why do people think the voucher s will still be an important factor for the sales of Pokémon when it's a deal only Nintendo Online subscribers can have access to + I'm pretty sure most of them were already used for most of the releases during this year.

Wait, those Vouchers are not available in the US anymore? Last time I checked (last week), they still did in Europe, and even got an ad for them.



does anybody know where I can find a list with the games with best first weeks sales in Japan? thanks!

Are you talking about just Switch games? Or everything? Pokemon doesn't stand a chance at breaking the all time record.

I found figures from 2008 for biggest Japan Launch (Famitsu numbers):

Final Fantasy VIII - 2.5m
Dragon Quest VIII - 2.24m
Final Fantasy VII - 2.03m
Final Fantasy IX - 1.95m
Dragon Quest VII - 1.86m
Final Fantasy XII - 1.84m
Final Fantasy X - 1.75m
Pokemon Diamond and Pearl - 1.59m

Some more recent tiles:

Pokemon Sun and Moon - 1.91m
Pokemon X/Y - 2.1m
Monster Hunter 4  - 1.72m
Smash Bros Ultimate 1.22m



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

They have impacted smm2 and fire emblem, why wouldn’t they continue to impact other titles? Also, in Japan the vouchers never stopped being sold. They are still being sold unlike in North America so they can still be used 

Huh, good to know. I thought it was announced as a time limited offer

How do you know?

All Nintendo first-party games have 35%+ digital sales in 2019. 

Do you have a source ? Was it announced in the latest financial results last week. I totally missed it so I'd like to know more those ratios.

"Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?"

...That's gotta be the most WTF name I've ever heard for a video game... Or any form of media now that I think about it.

I take it you missed that game called "Conception Please Have My Baby" or what ever then.
