I wonder if we will see ACNH below 50k-40k any week this year, just amazing sales also for switch I guess some stock back

It is about time I refresh the Wii Fit vs Ring Fit in Japan.
I will do this on the coming week end.



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TI MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

TLOU2 has the biggest launch week numbers of all ps4 western titles in Japan, i think that's more than "ok". I do wonder what the drop will be like next week.



I suspect that the animal crossing diving update will drive more sales.

I mean Animal Crossing New Horizon can only sell based on the number of new Switches available,

So if there are weeks with 20-40K Hardware sales, Animal Crossing could even fall below 20K.  

I think Animal Crossing will sell to at least 60% of new Hardware owners every week until the end of the year. The bigger question is how much can the Switch actually sale in Japan this year? 5 Million is guaranteed... 6 million is doable... but can it hit 7 million? There are certain things beyond fixing Supply that Nintendo can do, New Horizon DLC/Expansion plans, big holiday titles, holiday or permanent price cuts, new colors, new models, Ring Fit bundles... 

It will be interesting how much they supply during Obon summer holidays in Japan. That will give us an idea about what we can expect in December.

7 million in Japan would be insane lol. Won't say impossible though.



For sure the last device to hit 7 million was DS in 2007...

As a reminder, although there were many games that sold 1M on the DS that year, nothing can compare with what Animal Crossing New Horizon will end up selling by the end of the year. 

Top 10 DS 2007

1 Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time / Explorers of Darkness - 1.256.516
2 Mario Party DS - 1.232.644
3 New Super Mario Bros - 1.176.939
4 Pokémon Diamond / Pearl - 1.094.389
5 Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen - 1.052.827
6 Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day! - 1.033.933
7 Mario Kart DS - 910.771
8 Yoshi's Island DS - 896.814 
9 Animal Crossing: Wild World - 858.501 
10 The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass - 839.395 

TOTAL: 10.352.729

I'm not sure how much Software Switch will sale this year but we are already at 8M for the Top 10 with another 6 months to go... very early prediction without even knowing what to expect until the end of the year. 

Animal Crossing >7M

Ring Fit Adventure >2M

Pokemon Sword/Shield, Clubhouse Games, Breath of the Wild 2 >1M

So from the Top 5 I'm already looking at 12M, rest of Top 10 at 750K on average would mean a Top 10 of 15.75M. Depending on when Pokemon Snap launches and how it's received it's another title that coult hit 1M this year. 

Even if Animal Crossing and Ring Fit end up doing less due to lack of supply, it will still be massively bigger than the last huge year DS had. 

Nothing will ever come close to topping 2006 however...

  1. Pokémon Diamond / Pearl - 4.302.815
  2. New Super Mario Bros - 3.818.214
  3. Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day! - 3.748.638
  4. Animal Crossing: Wild World - 2.485.264
  5. Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day! - 1.991.116
  6. Weak English Adult DS Training: English Pickled - 1.529.618
  7. Mario Kart DS - 1.115.082
  8. Tetris DS - 985.246
  9. Final Fantasy III - 935.390
  10. Kanshuu Nippon Joushikiryoku Kentei Kyoukai - 916.600

TOTAL: 21.827.983

I mean, it's not really that surprising that a Western AAA action game didn't move a ton of hardware in Japan; they do seem to have warmed up a little to these kind of games in recent years but it's still not the country's genre of choice. 



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

Last of Us numbers seem good. Should be around 250k with digital. Probably 400k life time in Japan. Not bad.
