Forums - Sales Discussion - Top 20 NINTENDO SWITCH best-selling games in SPAIN.

I wonder how much Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sold in Spain. Its too bad that it's not ranked among the top 20 Switch games in sales.
It's interesting Pokken and ARMS held up well in Spain and that Splatoon 2 is on top over Smash Bros. Ultimate, all really impressive.

Not bad for Switch considering Spain is SonyLand

Spain was also the main market outside of Japan for the Vita, right? Maybe that means it's Sonyland mixed with the Japanese affinity for handheld gaming? If so, then the Switch would naturally do quite well over there.

I would consider France the prime Nintendo market in the EU.



Interesting to see what different countries like. Mario Odyssey is almost as popular as Mario Kart, while Smash doesn't seem to be nearly as big here as the rest of the world. Maybe Spain values single player experiences a lot more than multiplayer?

Definitely. I corrected the nonsensical sentence, it was meant to say Vita instead of Japan. I wanted to note that Spain, which generally leans heavily to Sony, could have increased Switch sales simply due to the fact that it's portable, and that portables sell very well there, and the Vita sold notably well there, too.

It would make more sense to look at what Nintendo handhelds sold in Spain if you want to have something to go on in regards to Switch.

On a more general note, the concerns that Nintendo will have trouble to sell in Europe in general and Spain specifically stem from an unhealthy emphasis on the previous generation and the exclusion of handheld sales. That paints a picture of "Europe is Sonyland", but both the Wii and DS did well in Europe (including Spain), so there isn't anything special that Nintendo will have to do to make Switch sell a lot in Europe. Switch is already doing well as it is and it's only going to get better with cheaper hardware prices.

The PS4's peak years in Spain are 500-600k each and if Switch does 400-500k during each of its peak years (and that's likely), it won't be far off. In France it's likely that Switch will sell more lifetime than the PS4, a lot of other European countries fall between Spain and France.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

As far as I remember, both the Vita and the 3DS did very well in Spain. No idea however about previous generations, though.

Not entirely sure about this.  But even though Spain is very strong for Sony, I was under the impression that there are even stronger countries marketshare wise for Sony in Europe. Potentially Italy, and especially southeast Europe like Greece. So the "Europe is Sonyland" stems from more than just Spain and the big 3.

On the other hand Nordic countries are fairly strong for Nintendo marketshare wise.

Yeah, you just made me remember about some peps posting Norway/Sweden/Finland weekly sales at some point during Switch's first year and it had quite the strong results too.

Though I don't remember if they were in any way consequential enough to affect European stats.

Yep, here in Italy Nintendo is seen as a "child brand/product" and in fact is one of the worst market for Nintendo in Europe, quite the same as Spain, but with more sales
