Octopath really did do well. Should be close to 300,000 in August/September I imagine.



 

Woah ! That digital ratio for Octopath :O

Another great month for KH 1.5+2.5. :)



Splatoon is crazy.

Square Enix strategy to get customers to download Octopath Traveler instead of buying it retail work out well.



Only two 3DS games charting in the top 30. Ultra Sun/Moon are interesting to say the least. Still selling while the 3DS is near its end point (comparatively to when Sun/Moon, ORAS, and X/Y came out), very few games are coming to 3DS to maintain some remaining momentum, and they are labeled as "Remakes/Remasters" of the games that just released a year prior to their initial release.



Nintendo seemingly owns the Japanese market.

Currently playing Skryim modded to hell and back.

Yeah looks like a PS4 ratio, Why was this game so high digitally, not enough stock perhaps?

Octopath was out of stock in Japan for some time.
