I thought Astral Chain lifetime sales would be similar to Xenoblade Chronicles 2 globally. Have to hope other regions pick up the slack because XC2 sold 97k FW in Japan.

Why compare a New IP to a franchise?

Because I expect them to sell similar? (Globally at least)

Xenoblade sits at 1.75m sold globally, I expected Astral Chain to reach somewhere around 1.5m globally.

Remember that in Japan physical games are more expensive than US. Besides, the vouchers may seem to hit those sale. If we account with the digital sales, the game will do better.

Astral Chain did a lot better than the previous Nintendo/Platinum collaboration The Wonderful 101. To me, the sales of Astral Chain look decent enough because I had no high expectations for the game in Japan.

Moving on to the Switch hardware year over year comparison, the launch of the new hybrid SKU made up for the losses in the previous six weeks, so the cumulative tally almost reached a new best mark. The Lite launches in week 38.

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

Very nice sales for the Switch and 9/10 games on the top 10.



Signature goes here!

Xenoblade 2 was at 1.75 m back at February.I wouldnt be surprised if it was above 2 millions at this point.

Yes it was. Maybe he was adding a new IP qualifier to it.

The Switch HW are seriously impressive. More battery life is quite important to a handheld, so I can definitely see why people want it.

Astral Chain start pretty poor. The fact that Azur Lane is top of the chart is pretty funny to me. Shipgirls working hard
