Animal Crossing New Horizons has now sold more physical copies than Pokemon X / Y and Dragon Quest 9 have LTD.

It needs 105k to beat the next game in the list which is New Super Mario Bros Wii

Wow Ring Fit Adventure surprised me. I knew it was doing good but I never thought it would catch on like it has when first released. I suppose it was perfect timing since gives people option to work out and have fun at home. Plus they actually put effort into game unlike that boxing game they published a year or two ago.



What the hell is that Dragon Quest title lol




May is the slowest month of the year in the Japanese market, so woeful hardware sales all around. Despite easy year over year comparisons ahead, it may take several weeks until Switch's 2020 is 1m ahead of 2019 year to date, although it's still not 100% clear if shortages have been completely resolved by now. In any case, it's better to set expectations low for the coming weeks.

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

AC is a monster. i would have never predict such legs.



Switch!!!

Yikes on the hardware this week.

Ring Fit staying quite strong, which suprises me. Would have expected it to be out of stock again. Not that 20k is a ton, but it's not bad at all.

If it outsells 2019 by the week even a little it should do it soon. Word for XCDE week will be much better. It’s so unpredictable as they sell what Nintendo ships



Animal Crossing is just a Beast! Ringfit is about to pass FF!

When you think about it 20k is a ton for a game that came out over 6 months ago. 99% of games don’t even see 10k after 4-5 weeks :p
