More than 90% of software sold on Switch, that's massive!



Signature goes here!

Botw still top 20 while 3D Zelda games weren't big there before... amazing.



Pokemon...keeping the Japanese video game market afloat with about 31% of the sold software of all systems physical games.



The first 4 together sold about as much as the 96 following taken together.

I don't see a Pro nor a Switch 2 until sales cool off. Nintendo is just doing so well.



A comparison with last year would be nice :).






Numbers 49 and 51 are the same.



OP you have Dragon Quest XI S on there twice at #49 and #51
