I am kind of surprised that Kirby made it to #3 right behind Monster Hunter and Splatoon. Kirby can handle his own with the big boys.

It has a real shot of crossing 1 million.

Kirby is super popular in Japan, so I don't know how it is surprising ... Though it was a pretty strong franchise in NA back in 00's too.

Europe is the only place where it was always slacking behind,lol.



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

Valkyria Chronicles 4 only did 60k? I assumed it would be higher, I thought it was a semi-big franchise there. Hopefully it does better in the west.

Had no idea that Gintama game already came out...some interesting stuff here.

KH3 effect. WOO!!!!



Anyone do the totals? For example # PS4 and Switch and total SW sold so far.



Monster Hunter World was really successful.



Nothing is stopping Monster Hunter this year, not even Pokémon which is a spin off-ish.

But I'm surprised Splatoon 2 already sold 600k+ this year. Considering there's a full semester to go as well as the holiday season, 1m is guaranteed and 1.5m a possibility.

Kirby will cross the million mark eventually. I think it'll do 1.2m LT in Japan.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Looking at this, if it hadn’t been for Monster Hunter World, PS4 and Sony would have taken a huge cultural hit in Japan. Every game at the top of the chartz helps to pull the other games for that system up. Can you imagine if Monster Hunter World would have been released for Switch instead of PS4? It could have been RIP Sony in Japan. The next few years are going to be interesting.
