Japan loves Pikmin. I think the first 2 Pikmins on the GC did quite well there

Can someone post the other Pikmin launches for comparison?

with digital pikimn 3 deluxe is likely a lot further ahead.



Nice to see Pikmin 3D do so well. Switch saving one more franchise at a time. Def over 210k with digital i think which is pretty great.

Launch aligned:
PS3: 9.244.781
PS4: 9.242.960

In other news: Pikmin 3 Deluxe first week is very strong.
Like record setting for the franchise in Japan strong. Without digital.

Congrats to Pikmin! Hopefully it did well in worldwide too and eventually gets over 1mil. 

And Yikes for the PS4. Monhun was not enough to save it. 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

The main page has the wrong numbers for japan for some reason



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Pikmin surprises me in Japan !

Though, really what needs to be seen are the numbers on the international level cuz, Europe doesn't bode well so far. Can NApick up the slack ? I wonder. I mean, if it can manage to make a million as well, I'll declare it as a relative success I guess



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

So the Switch version of SMT Nocturne came out ahead, didn't expect that given the game has Playstation roots and is the kind of game that tends to lean towards the PS4 audience.

Switch to PS4 ratio at 29:1 for the week.



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

Mario kart live didn't even make it to the top 10 in it's second week. Meaning a very sad <10k in sales on its second week. Nintendo's gimmick stuff never seems to work out well. I was hoping this would have legs.

I'm holding off until Black Friday to get Pikmin 3 deluxe. Hoping for a buy one get one half off sale to bundle it with age of calamity.
