Besides Yoshi Crafted World. What other "bigger" games does Nintendo have?

Switch over 70% with no new releases. I'm impressed!



Impressive that Switch is still above 60k. If things continue to go well, Switch will be up year over year in the 300-400k unit range by the end of June; right now it's up by 190k. If things go very well and Switch maintains a 60k+ baseline, it will be up year over year by more than 500k units by the end of June; that seems overly optimistic though, because the lineup isn't particularly strong.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

 Until March? Nothing.

There are around 25 3rd party releases in that time but none of them are big I think. Super Robot Taisen T is the biggest probably.

StarCraft and Fallout 4 currently.

Switch has been doing very well in Japan so far this year, this is also without any particularly big releases. If Switch can stay around 55-65k for it's baseline, when bigger games do release it could be seeing bumps into the 70k's and higher as well.

Wait, Switch is actually up compared to last week with exactly no new releases? How could that happen.

Love your graph and numbers but how can the PS4's baseline be higher this year than last year when it has sold 288k less units?

I'm trying to make sense of this as well. Last year Monster Hunter seemed to have a major effect on hardware for several weeks, so maybe that's where the 288k figure comes from? And then is the baseline determined from the past 52 weeks, so even though it's down 288k, it doesn't offset the rest of the year? Yeah, I'm at a bit of a loss. You can see from the first week in the chart that the PS4 was above the Switch. It just had a really good January.

Atlus made a huge mistake with Catherine on vita, should have been a switch title

Yeah I agree, Vita is now dead in Japan.

Thanks. Indeed it seems odd the first time the numbers came up. Will double check it



Ok opening for Jump Force, hopefully it will sell stronger in the west.
