Fire Emblem costs ¥ 6,990 and the Nintendo Voucher costs ¥ 9,990, so I'm sure it influenced a lot in digital sales.

I doubt we're gonna see much of a rebound in the next weeks until the new base model and then the Lite launches. But after the Lite is out, I'm sure Switch sales will be on fire!

Btw, what week will the Lite come out? Week 36?

I doubt we're gonna see much of a rebound in the next weeks until the new base model and then the Lite launches. But after the Lite is out, I'm sure Switch sales will be on fire!

Btw, what week will the Lite come out? Week 36?

Same week as Zelda: Link's Awakening remake, Sept. 20.

And the Pokemon Sw/Sh version of the Lite will come out on Nov. 8, a week before the games come out.



Like others are saying the sales of software and hardware are affected by digital becoming more popular, voucher program, incoming switch lite, incoming beefed up battery switch and 50% jump in price compared to the 3ds counterparts. I still expect this to surpass the 1.9m sales of awakening mostly due to its growing popularity overseas.



I am thinking that the announcement of the new Switch models are affecting hardware sales. A decent new game gets released, Fire Emblem, and hardware sales go down from last week. Guess I'll have to wait for the Switch Lite to see if I'm right.

Week 38.

Weekly Switch sales haven't had a consistent correlation with software releases, so new games didn't necessarily boost hardware despite good software sales. I think week 12 of 2018 had the release of Kirby Star Allies and it barely moved the needle.

Single weeks don't say much because of those inconsistencies. Always better to look at packs of three weeks or so, because the weekly fluctuations are commonly a bit weird. Besides, a few thousands of units are insignificant in the big picture. I'd rather wait for back to back weeks where Switch is down 10k+ units year over year before I say that the announcements of the new SKUs are having an actual impact on weekly sales.

The upgraded Switch SKU will be available in either week 34 or 35, so there's not much time left for weekly sales to crater.



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

Well, hopefully the digital sales helped Fire Emblem to go close to 200k.

I think fire emblem 3 houses will have some good legs though just by the good reception and word of mouth.
I was really iffy about it before release but now I'm 16 hours in and can barely stop playing.

Fire Emblem Awakening did 242,600 FW.

Fire Emblem Fates did 303,666 FW.

Fire Emblem Echoes did 131,668 FW.

So it just did better than echoes. TBH wasn't sure what to expect from it.

The voucher program in Japan is a much better deal than other regions

Fire Emblem is ~$70 is Japan while 2 vouchers are ~$90 so you basically get it for 50% off in Japan so digital is likely pretty high.

Still likely below Awakening & Fates though.

Super Mario Maker's debut really underscores how big an impact the voucher deal had.

Famitsu had lauch week(end) for SMM2 at 196,000 units at a 40-60% of initial shipment. Nintendo reported total shipments of 520,000 in the same three day period.  So if first weekend sales was half of the initial shipment, that's still 125,000 digital sales.
