wow, what a fantastic thread, cant believe i only just found this. thank you so much @Mr_Destiny for these insights!

TMS seems to just have an ok launch, compared to its great performance in places like france. DBZ also did less than i expected, but maybe most of its sales were digital.



TMS Bomba! Honestly, they should've released Mario 3D World instead of niche game in January.



Unfortunately, I couldn't get anything the last 2 weeks.



Finally able to get numbers again.

Nioh 2 (PS4 only) (week 1): 1100
My Hero One's Justice 2 (week 1):
   NS: 400

Thanks again!

Massive numbers for ACNH.  If it follows the same multiplier as Pokemon did from your numbers to Nintendo's PR for the 1st weekend, then we are looking at >2M from North America.

Week ending November 16: Pokemon!!!!

(...)

102,000

Nintendo reported >2.0M sell-through (physical+digital, two days, through 11/16).  So that's the same time-frame as your reporting.

So in the instance of Pokemon Sword & Shield, your data represented ~5% of total US sell-through.  Cool to know!  But we cannot use that to extrapolate for others of course.

Great observation! And my AC New Horizons week 2 numbers

Animal Crossing New Horizons (week 2): 57,000

match Pokemon's 56,300 week 2 almost perfectly. I also checked New Leaf: 1,400 last week.

If we compare Japan's Famitsu sales, Pokemon went from a 1.36 mil week 1 to 380k week 2 (-72%). Animal Crossing went from 1.8 mil week 1 to 730k week 2 (-59%). My store went from 102k to 56.3k (-45%) for Pokemon and 108k to 57k (-47%) for Animal Crossing.



Anything for week 3?



Damn, Animal Crossing NH is performing at the same level as Pokemon SwSh in the US.
