I expected switch around 80k so this is on the good side. I think next week could be a 150k week with the mario edition and game.
That Nioh performance tho...



Nioh 2 is BACK! but not with a bang.

Nintendo HW and evergreens down except MK8 and Smash. I wonder if MK8 can achieve a #1 week this year.



Switch dipping back under 100k and also below last year's performance. Nothing too dramatic given the lead it has built thus far. PS5 sales drop quite a bit but are still ahead of the comparable week for the PS4.

Signature goes here!

MOMOTARO IS NOW OFFICIALLY THE TOP SELLING 3RD PARTY GAME ON THE NINTENDO SWITCH:

  1. Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban! (Konami) - 56.283 / 1.846.039
  2. Minecraft (Microsoft Game Studios) - 9.692 / 1.806.925

Should be well-over 2 million physical before Monster Hunter Rise launches, even though I was bullish pre-launch - the title is performing beyond my lofty expectations. 

Olive Town will be the next major success story, game is trending very strongly in terms of pre-orders and should easily become Marvelous's best selling game in Japan and has the potential to be a million-seller. I expect the initial shipment to be over 200K

2021 suffers its first loss, down ~12k units year over year. A year ago Switch sales saw a boost following Nintendo's announcement of imminent shortages in Japan due to Chinese factories being put on hold. Said shortages began to materialize in week 8, at which point the Switch Lite SKU took a comfortable lead in weekly sales over the original Switch for a while.

Since this year isn't going to suffer from similar shortages, 2021 has an easy stretch ahead of it before the comparisons with Animal Crossing begin. So far 2021 is on track to weather the storm and exit it with a lead. After all, on top of the upcoming opportunity to keep building a bigger lead before AC, there's also Monster Hunter Rise which will greatly help to mitigate the losses during the hot phase.

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

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

Nintendo legs continues to do great. Especially for MK8DX and Splatoon which have been around since Switch early life.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

I'm suprised to see 3DS sales increasing significantly from both last week and last year. You'd think they'd be running out of units to sell by now.



Major Switch Titles Launch Aligned

2021 predictions:

  • Switch - 27m
  • PS5 - 15.5m
  • Xbox Series - 10m

Switch was so close to hit 1 million mark for this year, too bad. I hope it will be the case next week.

Worst week for Switch this year. It's time Switch get's new releases. Luckily this happens soon with Mario 3D World, Bravely Default and other stuff.
