The hell is BotW doing at 5th?

It's been really high up for a while and has kept slowly going up recently. It's been doing good since launch tho, usually in top 20 almost always, and close to or often in top 10-15

Splatoon 2 is doing really good too..I think people are buying both games side by side a lot.

Mild discount relative to other retailers is a small part.  But the bigger part is probably increased Switch sales.  Consistently, Breath of the Wild has seen sizable sales growth in connection to new console sales.

Nintendo has been dominating since Splatoon 2. I guess stock really did increase. Those high Mario Odyssey pre-orders so early on are also insane.
