What do you mean close to 1 million? It's at 1,016,073

He used Famitsu last week already, and those numbers where a couple hundred lower than MC. hence why he's just under it.

I'm using YTD Famitsu numbers. Did he update weeks 1-12 to Famitsu or are they still Media Create?

I am surprised that last year Kirby produced a +25% boost in sales, and Yoshi has helped nothing.



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TI MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

Well ... Kirby is more popular in Japan than Yoshi even though they both thread in the same kind of cutesy aesthetic for their games (Until you get in last portion of a Kirby game ... hell awaits you).

If I remember right, Kirby posted 225K approx. FW(without digital) while Yoshi has reached the 100K milestone after 2 weeks.

*Thanks for the input Zorg*

Just posted the latest Famitsu numbers. Getting close to a 300k lead now.

Being up by almost 20k this time of the year is really good, even when you factor in new releases.



It might cross the 300K lead mark next week :O

Does anyone have a Japan hardware totals chart? I don't even know how close the Switch is to gaining on the PS4.




Excellent performance in Japan. Absolutely thrilled to see Switch thrive so much.
