Even Konami is enjoying Nintendo Switch big userbase number. 3 successful releases by them in domestic market Super Bomberman R Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball Momotaro Dentetsu

They've released 4 games actually and all four have sold more than 200K physical in Japan.

At some point next year they would surpass their total sales on the PS4. This year the 4 games they have released on the Switch will surpass the lifetime physical sales of their Top 5 games on the PS5.

True,  this week PS4 version will top Media-create and people will be saying the same things they said when this happened with Trails of Mana :D

Try to explain that there is actual people buying it for the equivalent of $100 physically in Japan.

Konami out of all publishers getting peak PS2/DS software sales out of the Switch is the funniest thing about this gen.

Konami should be at the top 3 or 4 best selling publishers on Switch at the end of 2020 right?

1. Bandai Namco

2. Microsoft

3. Konami or Square Enix

16 million userbase is too big to be ignored by Japanese devs at this point. 

Square Enix should prepare the next mainline DQ game asap while Nintendo Switch is still rampaging in Japan for at least 2-3 years.



Momotaro slaying out here.. Switch numbers have probably doubled this week

It's between Square and Konami, it really does depend on how well Momotaro does. 

I would personally compare it to Super Mario Party, which launched far lower with 126.275 but is legging and bundling its way to 2 million. Mototaro's LTD floor is 1.5 million at this point, while eBaseball 2020 is heading towards around a minimum of 400K by the time the next Baseball game launches. This is one of the reasons at some point Konami will catch up to Microsoft who only has one extremely well selling game. They are actually seemingly investing into bringing 4-5 games to the Switch per year. 

Capcom will make short work of that top 4 next year with the release of Monster Hunter Rise

In terms of DQ, that one is interesting, we have the mainline and spinoffs...

It's been 5 years since a mainline; 5 years since a heroes game; 4 years since the last Monsters game; 2 years since the last builders game. There's gotta be at least one DQ game next year 



Switch hardware gonna be big this week yup. Momotaro and AoC will do really good as well.



Looks like Momotaro is set to dethrone Dragon Quest as the third party king on Switch, if only for the few months til MH Rise decimates all before it. The next Famitsu weekly numbers should be monstrous for Switch hardware, unless shortages strike again.

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