If animal crossing, fire emblem, yokai watch and Pokemon are spread out throughout the year the switch should do a lot better than 2018 in Japan.

I would add Dragon Quest as well, I know it's late port but I see it selling over 1 million.

I forgot that was releasing this year, that should at least give a little boost.

Just updated.
3 weeks into the year and 2019 is already up by over 120k.
I'm not too sure if 70kish is the new baseline for the Switch. Still taking a wait and see approach with that, but it should hopefully still be higher than last year's.

Well it should be up compared to next year but next months the baseline could go down by a lot it is a bit dry for games releases till Yoshi.






So far, so good. Actualy, it might be too easy to beat 2018 at this pace.

While I think the real baseline is lower than 70K, I doubt Switch will drop below 50K anytime soon.

Not going under 50k would be very impressive. Well what do you define soon, i will be surprised it not go under 50k till Yoshi's release. Well the week before you also have choco dungeon and dead or alive extreme 3 but doubt they move a lot of units.

Last year sales stayed most of the time over 40K during winter, with just very small dips to 39K. My feeling is that the baseline is a good 10K higher, thus holding those 50K mostly until spring.



Week 4 Numbers have been added. While still ahead, 2019 is starting to fall back to the 2018 baseline.
