Saying Switch is dominating Japan is an understatement. The Switch has a good chance of selling as well, if not better than the 3DS did lifetime. The 3DS has sold 24.5 million units in Japan. The Switch just crossed 10 million sold in Japan.
Granted, the 3DS was well passed the 10 million mark at this point in its life cycle. By November 2, 2013, the 3DS as closing in on 14 million.
But the 3DS also peaked very early in its life cycle. It already got a price cut and a hardware revision within a year and half of its release. Starting next year, we're going to start seeing the Switch close the gap between it and the 3DS, considerably.
This has given me a good idea for new Gap Charts article. Switch vs 3DS in Japan.
