I just look at Switch sales in Japan and laugh now. Nothing big gets released and Switch sales still go up 25k compared to last week.

People probably rushed to get one while stock lasted. Next week could have a major drop.



Like a couple of people in this thread have already suspected, Switch hardware rose in response to Nintendo's statement that shortages are likely to affect the Japanese market soon. I think it was on Sunday that I saw something on the news that China's most affected city by the coronavirus lifted the stop on production, but I neither know if that holds for all facilities nor if Nintendo's Switch production is located in that area. Regardless, it's a sign of progress in China, so the eventual negative effect on Switch sales in Japan should be shortlived (read: four weeks or fewer) rather than a problem that persists for months.

Year over year growth is approaching 200k through six weeks, but week 6's growth comes with the obvious caveat, so the current YTD growth of 180k is inflated.

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

NS is about half the total sales of 3DS now just before its third year.

For all we know, that immense stock in transit/already on shelves might serve it's purpose now :p We getting big numbers for now so I'll just savor it.

Base Switch nearly 4:1 over the Lite; really goes to show that "Japan only cares for handhelds" is an oversimplification.
