Dragon Quest V got a movie adaptation, which is probably the cause.

Its called Dragon Quest: Your Story and premiered on August 2nd.

Other observations:

29./00. [NSW] Super Mario Odyssey # <ACT> (Nintendo) {2017.10.27} (¥5.980) - 1.735 / 1.989.942 <80-100%> (-9%)

SMO is close to 2M retail. Did not show the greatest of legs but still moving a few copies

09./00. [NSW] Omega Labyrinth Life <RPG> (D3Publisher) {2019.08.01} (¥7.800) - 6.643 / NEW <60-80%>

26./00. [PS4] Labyrinth Life <RPG> (D3Publisher) {2019.08.01} (¥5.800) - 1.977 / NEW <20-40%>

Seems like a game that only sells because of skimpiness does not well with a censored version. Who would have thought...

15./20. [NSW] The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild # <ADV> (Nintendo) {2017.03.03} (¥6.980) - 4.469 / 1.371.866 <80-100%> (+10%)

And Link just keeps on climbing

Anyone an idea when the updated base model of the Switch will get released in Japan?

Damn, the "new" Switch model and the lite model are really damaging the Switch sales right now.

Seems like Sony's censorship will hurt the devs a lot. Hopefully the audience of those game will end up getting a Switch version or PC.

Talk about a slow week...

Hardware may be down simply because of phasing out the old Switch model. MM2 doesn't seemed slowed down, so I think it is just a hardware issue at the moment.
