Even that maybe hard as Smash and Pokemon will be in play at that point.

That would be a bit like Mario Odyssey being in play against Monster Hunter World.  I expect PS4 will definitely enjoy a few weeks as top dog when KH3 releases.

SMO was in play it's just MH not only has a bigger impact in Japan than KH and RE but SMO by the time MHW arrived had move 10m in the 3 months before MHW. Both Pokemon and Smash are 10m plus sellers as well so unless these two titles sell at a much faster pace than SMO they'd still be in play as Pokemon LG is out November while Smash is out December, both these games should also impact the baseline.

Nice to see that Octopath got some stock, the game is doing greatly.
Switch sales are great and poor PS4.
Weird to see Mario Odyssey so close to the bottom of the top 20.
Poor Saga Scarlet Grace

Made in Wario gorgeous lol



Nice increase for Octopath Traveler and it's still sold out. It could make to 250k or even 300k.



Once the major switch releases start pouring in you've gotta wonder where that baseline is going to shift to. So much happening in such a short span once Mario Party releases.



Games are fun.

Is Smash a heavy hitter in Japan? At any rate, Pokemon Let's Go + Yokai Watch 4 this holiday season should be enough to send the Switch into beast mode.

Now imagine when Capcom finally pulls their head out of their rear and makes a proper Monster Hunter game for Switch...

Yeah baseline has been 40-50k this year in what is essentially a dry year for the Switch. From Nov 2018 through end of 2019 I'm guessing we'll see Pokemon Let's Go, Smash, Animal Crossing, Pokemon, Dragon Quest, maybe even something like a 2D Mario, and probably some 3rd parties starting to come out with big games they started in 2017 once they realized they had woefully misjudged the Switch. I could see the baseline in Japan for 2019 being like 70-80k.

It did over 2.5m on Wii & 3DS



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
