There’s still a few more big games to come too.
Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town should have a few more big weeks to crack that 300,000 mark.
Bayonetta 3 should do similarly well.
Mario Golf and Monster Hunter Stories 2 could even be a little bit bigger and crack 400,000.
New Pokémon Snap will enter the top 20.
Skyward Sword should do similarly well in Japan.
Breath of the Wild 2 will sell over a million.
A Super Mario Party 2 would sell over a million.
Then there’s the mega blockbusters to come:
Monster Hunter Rise and Pokémon Diamond/Pearl will each do at least 2.5 million in Japan.
Pokémon Legends has the same potential.
Splatoon 3 will be even bigger than those games in Japan and should clear 3 million.
Then there’s the late gen blockbusters still to come like Pokémon Gen 9 and Dragon Quest XII that have 3 million+ potential.
Even little old Mario Kart would be guaranteed to sell 2.5 million in Japan if it happens.
Who knows what else could happen along the way and what surprise hits Japan will get?
