switch had really strong numbers last week, that it sold even more than ps2 in the first year suprised me



Nintendo must pour money on the AC team, it's no simple task to create not one but 2 milion seller franchises that appeal this much to the japanese market, if Nintendo had a team capable of doing the same to the western market the Switch could sell as much as the DS...



This kind of thread need a bump

The Switch will be a huge success in Japan alone. Hope Nintendo doesn't go back to their attention being Japan first though.

I wonder how many units Splatoon 2 will sell in the long run.



300k switch consoles were sold last week in Japan. Will surpass PS4’s Ltd over there next year already.

If the AC team hasn't already been split to give Animal Crossing and Splatoon their own dedicated teams then it should be because both franchises are too big and too important to be a development group's secondary focus.



Jesus!

Over 8 million, easily.
