Yokai Watch 4 may of got delayed to Spring 2019, but it still seems which is going to have a solid year in 2018 with Let's Go and Smash on the horizon. Great numbers for Super Mario Party, with the legs the series is known for I could see it getting close to 700k lifetime especially with a big holiday boost.

2019 is going to be absolutely insane though for Switch in Japan. We're still a ways out and the line-up is already packed with big upcoming titles; New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe, Tales of Vesperia, Fire Emblem Three Houses, Yokai Watch 4, Daemon X Machina, Yoshi's Crafted World, an onslaught of Final Fantasy titles, Luigi's Mansion 3, Animal Crossing, Pokemon Generation 8 and that's just so far.

If Dragon Quest XI S is announced for 2019 in Japan or anything else for that matter is just going to be overkill.

SMP being the 4th best FW selling title in the series is quite the good prospect. Adding it digital sales probably puts in 3rd place though :P

Now, being honest to what I thought, the increase on the hardware side was much more limited than I first imagined.

Wow, people still play Mario Party



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

Switch really dropping the ball.

Thanks for your continuing work on this, this graph really gives insights. As others explained (I wasn't aware) the drop in PS4-sales is because a price-drop for Pro is coming. This will probably boost PS4-sales next week. Interesting to see if it leads to a new baseline.

Thanks. Didn't know about the soon-to-be price drop of PS4, with that in place, numbers should be really up from today's

Solid opening for Mario Party.

PS4 baseline could really use a boost but I doubt it'll get one from the 10% price cut on PS4 Pro only.

Price is dropping to ~$385 from the ~$430 it was at previous. A 5,000 yen price drop is worth noticing, but it's more a push to be inline with global prices than anything else.

Good Switch numbers. Really ouch PS4 numbers. I feel sad to see Astro Bot so far down in the chart. Astro Bot deserves more love :(
