Around the Network

Impressive switch peformance, up weekly without releases and stil 30% up yoy. Ps4 at over 60% yoy decline, as expected.



I was sure Switch was going to be flat or down this week compared to last year. Impressive numbers!
And RFA N°1 with stock shortage (according to Dr Serkan Toto)



Good showing by Switch, Ring Fit Adventure and Pokémon. But none of those things are surprising anymore, so I'll touch on something else this week in order to be justified to write more than a couple of sentences in addition to posting the year over year table.

Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training for Switch is performing significantly above my low expectations. I had expected it to tumble into the lower regions of Famitsu's top 30 by now and to fall out of the top 30 by the end of February, but the game is showing some legitimate legs despite not doing much new (unlike Ring Fit Adventure which isn't just another Wii Fit). It still has some way to go before it exceeds the lifetime sales of its 3DS predecessor, but as of now it doesn't look like it will do worse than it.

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

How is Switch up this week? Lol



Around the Network

Ring fit is a bona-fide hit.

It's also doing very well digitally so the already impressive sales are even more impressive.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Wow! An increase for the Switch! And Ring fit and Brain training are killing it!



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Switch really doing well

And RFA finally on top



Seems like the Lite are simply additive sales to the whole package than just replacing the regular SKU sales, as we thought.

RFA and Pokémon keeps pumping decent numbers too.
