Good numbers for Switch.

Maybe PS4 will be above 10k again next week, since Persona 5: The Royal launches tomorrow.

Thank heavens for the Switch; without it Japan would be a truly depressing picture of a market in total collapse.

I've been following these charts since 2009 and I don't think I've ever seen a market so heavily carried by one system.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Top 30

NSW - 20
PS4 - 10
 


BOTW is still going which will help getting to that WW 20m total by the time the next game arrives.

Ring Fit has the potential to become a major sleeper hit... depending on how it is doing elsewhere. But if it catches fire, it could take off into the millions this November or December.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

From Nintendo's latest quarterly report.

Mario Maker 2 - 880k
Fire Emblem 3H - 480k
Link’s Awakening - 350k

As many suspected vouchers are impacting retail sales. The same will happen with Luigi's Mansion 3 and Pokemon Sword/Shield.

So using the numbers for week 39 (ending September 29th):

Mario Maker 2 = 880,000 - 644,445 = 235,555 digital sales or 26.77%

Fire Emblem: Three Houses = 480,000 - 250,272 = 229,728 digital sales or 47.86%

Link's Awakening = 350,000 - 187,150 = 162,850 digital sales or 46.53%

*** Important to note that the percentage are actually lower since Nintendo reports sold to retailers and Famitsu reports sold to customers but there's no way to account for how many copies were on the shelves.



Signature goes here!

Indeed. It's out of stock in Amazon US. It will definitely in the holiday season

Ah yeah, that sounds familiar now that you mention it.
Still weird that it took so long.
