Massive drop for the Switch.
SMM2 Legs continues!



Pocky Lover Boy! 

So the Lite and revision announcement is making an impact. Hmm. MM2 is doing very well, FE3H houses was like expected. PS4 only barely keeping above 10K.



The wait for the new models is starting to really take its toll for the Switch. PS4 dangerously close to slipping under 10k a week.



Signature goes here!

Yeah, the Japanese market is going to be soft until September. The combination of Switch Lite, Zelda and especially Dragon Quest XI S should give things a significant boost.

Three Houses' success in Japan is also difficult to gauge without knowing what the digital figures are - we're only going to have a good idea of that when Nintendo's next set of results come in at the end of October.

I think our only way to gauge the success of FE3H.. is to cross reference with western sales. It will take some time for those to appear though. And for the full picture we will have to wait until the next quarterly report.



No stability, let alone rebound this week. Given that the upcoming weeks moved upward last year, we can expect further five-digit-deficits in the next two weeks. The upgraded hybrid Switch will go on sale in either week 34 or 35, the Lite launches in week 38.

The "silent" announcement of the upgraded hybrid Switch has probably a bigger impact on weekly sales than the Lite. The news about the upgrade took some time to get around. The Lite is for people who were going to wait until such a model anyway, but the upgrade makes people who were interested in the hybrid hold off and at this point in time there are probably no special discounts at retailers to phase out the original model.

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

Next couple weeks will be pretty low. Also a rather bleak Obon week incoming at this rate.



Decent/expected drop for FE knowing it had a strong digital presence pretty much everywhere, should negate it's average physical sales in Japan and the lack of physical stock in other markets.

Otherwise, like Rol stated the upgraded Switch has probably hurt a bit of it's sales due to obviously a few people waiting for the better version of the standard SKU, Lite isn't for much in this case.

The Japanese charts will look pretty depressing for the next almost month and a half until the Lite launches.
