4 weeks in a row! US and Japan did very well, Europe not so much, it's the hardest market for Nintendo, indeed
Will the Smash Direct increase more and more Switch numbers?

I'm still doubting the Europe numbers, it just doesn't add up with Nintendo's own statements.

Which statements?

Anyway, Switch doing really well around the globe. Momentum grew a lot in Europe and thats Nice. 



Switch still going strong, wow! Especially North America has seeing a big increase for the past month. I don't think it's just Octopath doing that since the increase has lasted several weeks now. Maybe a combination Fortnite + Octopath + Mario Tennis?

At the end of July they said that sales have increased  in each region since E3.

For America & Japan, this sites numbers reflect that with an increase in sales from mid-June through all of July, NPD & Media Create also confirmed this.

On the other hand, this site shows that Europe had a 1 week boost during E3 week but quickly dropped below the pre-E3 baseline.

What does that even mean? Its "true numbers" are the numbers right here. This is how much it sold.
