Great start for Kirby.

FW other Kirby games Media Create:

Kirby: Triple Deluxe: 214,208
Kirby: Planet Robobot: 144,846



PS4 sales looking not so good this week.



Around the Network

Disappointed hardware sales. I thought switch would be at least 70k with Kirby and splatoon bundle and ps4 was just awful. Not sure if either had supply issue



I thought Kirby + Splatoon bundle would make it go over 70k......

How well did Star Allies do compared to other Kirby games?

And I find it surprising that there will be no Handheld dominating in Japan. Just 2 home conoles xD

Sadly that is on Sony supply chain. Switch did a bit lower than what I was expecting but Kirby did more than I was expecting.

Oh wow! It did amazing compared to what COMG were saying before its launch day.

Yep, that average hasn't improved much at all. Clearly the only thing that boosts sales for the PS4 in Japan is a much anticipated game or a price drop. The spike and decline in sales following a big release is far starker in Japan than anywhere else, with the exception of MHW. It needs a price cut to sustain a better average in my opinion. 



 

The PS5 Exists.
