Nintendo basically has the giant momentum and the only thing stopping it are stock issues. The thing is, I still don't think we are seeing the true numbers that it could reach each week.

Johnlucas forsaw 4.1m wiis per month i forsee 4.1m switches per month

Its unknown how Gold Silver sold in its first 11 weeks but New Horizons certainly has the record for everything after that.

I checked here and Gold/Silver only sold less than 100k after 12 weeks: https://www.vgchartz.com/weekly/36569/Japan/

(the 1st week didn't count, because it was the launch week: https://www.vgchartz.com/weekly/36485/Japan/ )

If Animal Crossing stays at least another week over 100k, it could break that record (although sales are not as high as Gold/Silver, which by now had reached 6,3kk).

Aninal Crossing likely wins with digital factored in



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

Animal Crossing with another 100k and Switch back at 100k!
Those PS4 numbers just looks so bad compared to it lol



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Dem Switch numbers

XB: DE got so close to 100k physical (it probably reached 100k with digital numbers)

DAT Ring Fit Adventure boost.

Final Fantasy VII Remake not in the top 10 anymore.



Your sword did not cut deep enough

Good for Xenoblade, great game!! deserves the recognition



don't mind my username, that was more than 10 years ago, I'm a different person now, amazing how people change ^_^

Big week for Switch means 1m+ up YTD. Speaking of which, the YTD is 16 weeks ahead of 2019, so that already includes the Switch Lite launch in week 38 last year.

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

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

So Animal Crossing at 5M physical on Famitsu by the end of the Quarter, the game could very easily be at 6.5M physical by the end of 2020.
This would make it the 4th Best Selling Game in Japan EVER and that's without the digital share. If digital is 20% for the year, the game will ship over 7.8M for making it 2nd only to Pokemon...
Animal Crossing is known for it's legs, New Leaf sold 3.5M in it's 52 Weeks, ended up at close to 6M lifetime.
If New Horizons sells a similar share after it's first 52 weeks on the market... we would be looking at a game that will sell over 12.M copies in Japan lifetime... is that possible?
With DLC, free updates & support for a couple of years. I don't see why it wouldn't - the main question, what is the ceiling?

TOP SELLING GAMES JAPAN ALL TIME:

11. Monster Hunter Freedom 3 (PSP) - 4.850.000

12. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Switch) - 4.685.419

13. New Super Mario Bros (Wii) - 4.630.000

Right now Animal Crossing New Horizon physical is 33% attach rate, in 11 weeks... crazy how huge this game is in Japan.. not surprising, just crazy

will AC be the last trick for the switch in japan?

Only if they never release another game in Japan.

Seriously though, why is this even a contemplation?

A bit less than Xeno2, I thought it would increase a bit. Maybe it will be more popular overseas
