Actual holiday weeks start Week 50. Numbers for November are fine considering the lack of a big Holiday game. Black Friday/Cyber Monday aren't part of Japanese culture

the holidays in east asia start md december and go on for a while, japan actually has the shortest holiday period in mid december to end of january.

most others last untill lunar new year



Momotaro is going to be this holiday's evergreen with New Horizon and Ring Fit Adventure, Konami's board-game is looking like it will surpass 1 million physical before the end of the year. And it's very likely that it end ups as Konami's best selling game in Japan of all time unless they prematurely release a sequel. 

As I mentioned in the COMG thread a few weeks ago before the launch, 1.5 million is the floor for Momotaro. https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=9247616 



    In Japan at least it looks like Momotaro more than anything will be the Switch's de facto "holiday game" in the absence of a big Nintendo release.
    Here's hoping between that and the evergreens Switch still manages a strong Christmas season.

    Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

    Week 49 numbers are out. I'll let Marth start the new thread but here are a couple highlights:

    Switch 200K+
    PS5 12K
    XBS 1.6K

    Momotaro Dentetsu over 100K again, still #1. Atelier Ryza 2 PS4 version outsells Switch version.
