It seems like nobody cares about PS5 games

Do we have the figures for Star Allies ?

Good sales for Kirby but it seems there was no stockpiled Switches saved up for that launch since hardware is pretty standard stuff. Great boost for PS5 this week!

Switch sales slightly down compared to last year.

Good opening for Kirby. If it has legs like Star Allies 1 mil should be very feasible.



Major Switch Titles Launch Aligned

2022 predictions:

  • Switch - 24m
  • PS5 - 15.5m
  • Xbox Series - 10m

Kirby Star Allies sold 223K at retail in it's first week in 2018 so 380K is a 157K boost. Also remember that the digital share will be a bit higher today than it was four years ago.

I think you didn't check the right column, Switch is massive down from last year 83.8k vs 267.5k, but that was to be expected since last year had Monster Hunter Rise.

Kirby vs MH Rise was never going to be a fair competition really.

Anywoo, excellent FW for Kirby and the Forgotten Land which beats every previous Kirby games FW. I'd imagine the digital count (15-20% ratio) would put it around 430K to 450K in total. Counting the fact these games have usually pretty good legs. The million should be attainable in a few months.
