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, 2007 is just spillover from 2006's lineup.

2006... yeah combine mainline pokemon for a new gen with a 2d mario title AND an animal crossing title.... on a handhled... in japan.... that just guarentees 15+ mil.

If they want 7 mil, I can see one thing that can potentially confirm a 7 mil sell though, perhaps even 8 mil.... a proper new traditional mainlaine MH title.

come on capcom that just money sitting on the table, that would sell at least twice as well as MHW in japan.

You gotta wonder how good of an English learning software "Weak English Adult DS Training: English Pickled" really is with a title like that.

Has to be a typo or a poor translation on the posters part. I tried to google the name and nothing came up.

That is likely a mistranslation of the Title. Weak English is probably beginners English.

Seems like the Switch domination continues. PS4 barely got a boost from the TLOUII release, meaning that it's all up to Ghost of Sushi to make a difference this year. The TLOUII numbers are okay, but this to me means that global domination over Animal Crossing is not a given. AC was dominating in all regions.

Week 12, 2017, Monster Hunter XX came out for the 3DS, it sold 1+ million copies.  3DS hardware fell from 42k the previous week to 39k that week.  Monster Hunter and the 3DS are more popular than the PS4 and TLOU.  I don't understand these "this game didn't more hardware" for consoles past 72 months...its a hard needle to move for a console of that age, no matter the game.

Tell that to Pokemon and Gameboy.

The point is, not all games that sell well are killer apps. Some sell well because they appeal to an existing fanbase, but not anyone new. The last Monster Hunter game, for example, wasn't a killer app, it was the next game for a pre-existing audience that didn't offer anything appealing for anyone new.

Top 30

NSW - 25
PS4 - 4
3DS - 1

There it is.

NSW 25 (including 8 third party games)
PS4 4 (including 2 third party games)

Just a couple weeks ago I was arguing Switch third party would be dominating Playstation third party.  Well it's already happened and it didn't take long.  There are 10 third party games on this week's chart and 80% of them are on the Switch.

Someone suggested that Nintendo has run out of big games, and what could keep selling the Switch in Japan?  It's an absurd question, but even if all of Switch's first party games fell off of the charts, then the next biggest category is Switch third party games.  Switch's final trick in Japan is that it will keep getting almost all of the Japanese third party games.  Switch has third party domination.  This week, for example, Switch has 4 times the number of third party titles that Playstation does.

TOTAL: 9.118.241

  • The total for the Top 20 for 2019 was 11.69M so by mid-year we are less than 1.5M away. 
  • All titles in the Top 20 have hit 100K, last year we had games mid-year in the Top 20 that were just above 50K
  • Ring Fit Adventure & Pokemon Sword/Shield are very likely to hit 1M this year
  • In the case of Ring Fit Adventure with ample supply, it could actually finish much higher
  • Clubhouse Games is looking like it will clear 500K in 2020 with ease
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Smash Ultimate, Minecraft are all titles that should clear 500K 
  • Splatoon 2 and Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training have a shot at 500K as well. 

Titles in Launched in Q3 that should clear 200K in 2020: 

  • eBaseball Power Pros 2020, Konami's previous effort sold 200K on the Switch in 2019
  • Paper Mario, only the Wii U entry in this franchise has sold under 200K
  • Captain Tsubasa, it's football + anime - personally I can see this as one of the biggest under-the-radar 3rd party games this year
