Switch back down to Earth this week



Around the Network

Splatoon 2 down to the 15th slot and trying to limp its way the 3m mark. Interesting how the legs have really dwindled on this impressive game. Mario Odyssey down at the 20th slot, just hovering in and out of the top 20 depending on how many new releases come in each week...another might game that seems to have fallen a bit.

On the flip side, Zelda still has extremely strong legs, will be interesting to see if Link's Awakening affects that or not. Smash Bros is still going strong and set to surpass Splatoon 2 sometime this year as the best selling title on the charts, as long as its legs continue like this. NSMB U is now the Mario game to get. It didn't get a huge surge and launch, but has really strong legs and seems to have cut off the legs of Odyssey.

Girls and Panzer looks like an interesting game...might have to import that to see if it is any fun.

A 12k drop for Switch but still miles ahead of the competition. Nice launch for Anthem considering the negativity around the game.

It has no competition in Japan let's be honest. Biggest threat is mobile gaming and that dwarfs everything in Japan including switch 



Those PS4 sales... really need a pricecut to boost.



I thought Anthem was going to do 100K with the points it had on COMG charts ... it didn't (phew).

Switch is up year-on-year by 13,5K units !! The party is continuing :D

Switch down from 60k, was inevitable.

Athem sales are a bit higher than I expected, probably won't have much legs though.

Mobile gaming dwarfs everything, everywhere not just Japan 



Don't get me wrong Anthem did very strong, but I expected a little bit more from it after seeing the crazy COMG performance.



KH3 is holding decently.

The bad word of mouth and reviews likely hurt big time.
