Can someone tell me where do Famitsu get their digital sales numbers ? Or is it just guess work ?

Nintendo don't release digital sales numbers, even NPD don't get them. So it's guess work. Don't know why they don't release them when pretty much every other publisher does.



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

Really? I've never seen any publisher release digital sales figures. I've only ever seen them release shipped (including digital) figures, which Nintendo do as well, and sometimes a digital % (albeit of revenue rather than actual units sold).



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Publishers don't release digital sales figures to the public, I'm talking about releasing to groups such as NPD. If you look at the top selling games of the month NPD releases the only games with a * next to them are Nintendo games, and the * is for digital numbers not being included. Nintendo are the only publisher I've ever seen with the * but I don't look that often.

Thanks for posting the sales numbers Bernie.



I was wondering why Fire Emblem sales seemed low on the weekly Japanese charts. Looks like a ton of Fire Emblem fans have gone digital. Fire Emblem's total sales are not too far behind either Mario Maker 2 or Professional Baseball Spirits 2019, but it has about twice the digital sales numbers of those two games. The weekly charts only report physical numbers, so it makes Fire Emblem sales look worse than they really are.

The vouchers might have just saved the game in Japan tbh. 200k+ In about lesd than 1 week is really good. It most likely around 350k now.

Though it's still behind Awakening/Fates first weeks. Fire Emblem Awakening did 242k FW. Awakening was also launched on a smaller install base of 5.76m in Japan, while the Switch currently has an install base of 8.7m in Japan.

Though Three Houses will do better in the west IMO. So global sales will be above Awakening. Perhaps it could have stronger legs than Awakening in Japan and win there too, but that's less likely.

I feel like we're seeing a few franchises start to gain ground in the West while at the same time declining in Japan. Monster Hunter, Pokemon, I think FE too.

Until I get proven wrong. I still think the handheld franchises will see a decline in Japan. That includes Animal Crossing too. If the Switch lite is successful at increasing the software sales (at a certain margin) of already released Switch games then my perspective can be proven wrong. 

And Yes the worldwide sales will really makeup for that decline in Japan.
