Incredible week for Nintendo.

What's Switch's next big release over there?

You should know, you were the Japanese release list guy.

I expect the next big thing will be a game announced on a direct otherwise it will be FF chronicles.

I know!! I'm kind of retired as of late. It was fun doing those threads, but I'm out of the loop.

Thanks for the info. Whenis FFCC releasing??

Bets with Conegamer:

Pandora's Tower will have an opening week of less than 37k in Japan. (Won!)
Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.
Stakes: 1 week of avatar control for each one.

I'm guessing the yearly pokemon games. Unless they announce Tomodoachi life 2 on Switch or the next Monster Hunter. 

Yeah, those are the huge ones. Hopefully we get a clear picture of what 2020 will look like for Nintendo, so far it's been nothing but silence.

Wait what!? I thought it was coming out in the near term, it's not that big of a game either. Is there really nothing there in Japan lined up for the Switch for the next 5 months?

Yup. People are really desperate for a Direct but nothing has happened so far.

We have the Trials of Mana remake in a month and Pirate Warriors next week/this week. But other than that its looking pretty empty.

I think your math is off, the digital share would need to be around 42% to match 2.637 million. 29% would only read 2.425 million.

Digital ratio is based on total units, not only physical ones

Oops, had a bit of a brain fart on this one haha.



AC is the biggest series in Japan right now with 5m sales average, with the added momentum of NS and the situation of combined home and portable userbases it has a good chance of catching and overtaking Pokemon G/S' total sales of 7.2m LT which would make it the second best selling game in the region first is Pokemon R/B/G at 10.2m which would be quite a target to beat but right now only AC has any kind of shot at hitting it.



Hmmm...I suspect Nintendo may have been stockpiling Switches for the Animal Crossing release.

Thanks for the info, they might be relying on AC for the mid term then, good thing they delayed it to 2020, otherwise it would have been a disaster Q1 with what we know so far.

Technically, its Nintendo's Q4 according to their fiscal year. Their Q4s are usually Jan.-March.
