Dunno bout DQXI S but I think sales will be pretty huge. I heard Atelier is soldout so probably sales will be pretty high for franchise's standards



Zanark best Inazuma Eleven pg

Exciting... waiting for these numbers.



Switch!!!

Supposedly Atelier Ryza did really well in japan, its first week sales where over 150k.



Well I severely underestimated DQ XI. Over 300k!

Sheer utter destruction hardware wise. Switch just doing holiday numbers. Global numbers yet another wide margin win for the Switch without a doubt.

DQ sold extreeemely well, God damn.



Number format correct. Will post the charts in a few minutes. Great Switch hold and holy DQ



There was bundle for Dragon Quest XI S, but only for the hybrid SKU. Nevertheless, people shouldn't have the expectation that the hybrid SKU will significantly decline in light of the presence of the Lite, but rather that there will be additive sales. So a baseline of 30-45k for the hybrid plus roughly the same, maybe more, for the Lite. Unfortunately, we won't get to see an actual baseline until next year, because by the time the Lite launch boost has fizzled out, Luigi's Mansion 3 is already out and from there it's leading to Pokémon and into the holiday season. The latter half of January will be the time to see what Switch's new baseline is.

Year over year, Switch is now ahead by more than 750k units YTD.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Gamers Club

Really good week, I hope next week isn’t too rough with that tax increase.



I was expecting more from DQXI, but it sounds like it helped to sell a lot of consoles. I'm curious if sales of DQXI on PS4 increased for the week due to it being in the spotlight again.

But I really am curious if the Lite will actually have a baseline above that of the regular Switch. Do more people in Japan really not care about the ability to play docked? The OG Switch has a bigger screen as well, so there is surely some amount of people who will still get the regular Switch even if they never plan on playing docked. I was thinking more along the lines of the Lite selling 1/2 to 2/3rd the amount of the regular Switch once all things are settled, but I may have underestimated the extent at which Japan likes their portables.
