Couple of weeks?  That's on the next Famitsu report.  And that's just physical copies too.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Pretty soon AC:NH will be competing with only the likes of Mario and Pokemon for the top 8 spots all time on the Japan charts. Can't wait to see it rocket to #1 all time!

  • Animal Crossing already sold more than the combined total of the two top titles of 2019 - Pokemon Sword / Shield & Smash Ultimate 
  • 7 weeks until the end of the Quarter there is a great chance we surpass last year's Top 10 Total, only 2.1M left
  • Animal Crossing at this point might be around 5M by the end of June... 
  • Ring Fit Adventure finally getting stock, if there is enough we can see it above 500K by mid-year
  • Splatoon 2 replaces Luigi's Mansion 3 in the Top 10, should remain there until Xenoblade 
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is moving in on that 4th spot, continues to outperform Smash & Minecraft this year

Couple of weeks?  That's on the next Famitsu report.  And that's just physical copies too.

How many games even managed to sell over 4M in Japan?

That's quite a bit more than I expected. Though with the Pokemon titles, that should have been expected. And Mario, and Animal Crossing. Probably not too many of those not from Nintendo themselves

Cant look it up right now but I belive like 6-7 are not Nintendo/Pokemon

3 Capcom

3 Square/Enix

or something like that.

With a google search I got this page from 2012:
https://soranews24.com/2012/07/08/japans-best-selling-video-games-of-all-time/

Non-Nintendo/Pokemon:

FF7 (4M)
DQ7 (4.14M)
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (4.16M)
DQ9 (4.3M)
Monster Hunter 3rd (4.7M)

Also this 3DS game released since 2012:
Monster Hunter 4 (4.1M)

I believe every other 4M+ seller is Nintendo/Pokemon.
