Mario Kart cracks me up. Between the Wii U and Switch, how many copies have they sold?



Ringfit might be the first new ip on switch to cross a million

Arms, 1-2 Switch, Labo, Octopath Traveler, off the top of my head. Or do you mean Japan-only?

Nice bounce back for Switch HW this week. Interestingly, the increase is entirely with base Switch units. Could it be that Ring Fit is becoming a system seller?



SW-3707-5131-3911

Switch Lite sold between 17k and 19k in the last 3 weeks without a game release boosting sales.
1st week was launch, week 2 and 3 there was the Dragon Quest XI effect and next week until january there's the LM3/Pokemon/holiday effect.

So these 3 past weeks are the only ones giving an idea of what could be the Switch Lite baseline in japan: around 18k.
I know there was the taxes and the typhoon but can we still say that this looks a bit weak as a baseline?

My prediction is for a maximum baseline of 25k from mid-january on.



Great hold for Ring Fit Adventure. Has the making of a steady long term seller and it helps that it isn't just a retread of Wii Fit.

Switch Lite sales steem to stabilize at ~20k and it's interesting. While I always thought that the narrative of Japan being handheld-centric is overblown, the Lite went down more than I expected because I anticipated about a 50/50 split between the two SKUs going forward. But what we are seeing points to a future where the hybrid SKU will be clearly in the lead, anywhere between 60/40 to 75/25. In the overseas market it was always clear that the hybrid SKU will be the better selling one going forward, but turns out that Japan won't be too different.

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

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

The decline in Switch Lite HW could be attributed to several things but key part the past few weeks has definately been the Pokemon version of Lite releasing this friday.

I expect Lite sales to > OG Switch next week.

Lite will be a key factor during the holidays, we'll see how ratio is then but I think it's gonna look very differently than now.



That ringfit hold!
