Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu: Switch surpasses four million units sold in Japan

Cool! Now I figure out how switch sales will be in Japan when animal crossing and pokemon launch.

Famitsu has just reported its latest hardware sales figures from Japan. For the week of March 19, sales tracking data has Switch at another 52,000 units sold. Total sales are at 4,037,144 units.

Famitsu reports that with that figure, Switch has surpassed four million units sold in Japan. The milestone was reached 56 weeks into the system’s lifespan.

Switch is also on a similar pace as Wii. With Wii, the console sold over four million units by its 54th week.

Damn, excellent news, and this is without Pokemon or Animal Crossing as well. I figure those will push the system even more. Smash Bros may push the system forward as well. There is still plenty of room for growth for the system in Japan.

We need Pokémon.


Should pass PS4 by years end. Not that they are in direct competition or anything though.

Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

Shit is going to get crazy when Pokemon releases. 4 million when Pokemon and dragon quest are coming god knows when and there hasn't been a word said about animal crossing or monster hunter

Amazing! If it gets another 50k then that would be AWESOME!
