Switch managed to beat last year's 3rd post Lite release week without any software release! Pretty damn good!

The numbers seem low for Crash Bandicoot, how big is that franchise in Japan?



Signature goes here!

Switch sales are up WoW. It's always interesting to see how much they will sell in a particular week. It really is a huge guessing game at this point. I'm also surprised to see RFA at third, but in terms of weekly sales, there isn't much difference between first and third place.



Switch doing better, but Ninty clearly is keeping more and more consoles back in their storehouses to have something to sell during the holiday season.

And if RFA constinues like this for a couple years, it could end up becoming the second-best-selling game on the Switch in Japan when all is said and done.

Was huge(even got a manga) now it is basically death.

I am not sure they had anticipated that the base Switch alone would do significantly more in 2020 than 2019.

EDIT: without price cut.



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TGM3 MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10
Western record on TGM3 EASY : 1484
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

I just noticed Switch passed 4m YTD this week. I think last year they sold just under 4.5m for all of 2019 in Japan. Switch should pass that in another 5-8 weeks, leaving basically the entire holiday season for whatever the increase is compared to last year.



Ouch, Crash deserves better.

I hope this doesn't curb any future plans for a New Spyro. Different franchises but they share similar trajectories



2020 edges out a win this week while it also passes 4m YTD. Now there are three easy weeks ahead. If I remember correctly, Pokémon bundles were available in week 44 of last year, so some of the Sword/Shield boost occured before the games actually released in week 46.

Only 450k units to go until 2020 has officially beat 2019 in sales for the year. Will likely take six weeks for that to happen.

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

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

Ever since EA closed their office in Japan sales of their games got even worse. Less than 5.5k for Star Wars, oof.
