29/30 for Switch, and the only non-Switch game is just barely on the list at #28.

I reckon we'll get a clean sweep in the coming months.



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

If they are holding back this year for the next, AND a new model is down the pipeline, I can easily see next year being a historic year.
Its already going to be an extremly strong start with MHR



Few observations/comments from Top 30
- Pokemon would be top 5 when combined with the expansion pack version.
- Doesn't look like Splatoon 2 will catch up to SSBU or Pokemon. Summer time it looked like it has a shot
- Missed the fact that Super Mario Maker crossed 1 million in retail last week.
- NSMBU should get there late Jan/Early Feb.
- Was hoping for more for Super Mario Odyssey and BOTW but any sales ~3 years later in Japan for either is a bonus. West is still carrying the legs for both.
- Not sure if any PS4 games released this week for PS4 but its possible it may be a Top 30 sweep for Switch on the next chart.

Around the Network

[NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, 04/28/17) – 44,450 (3,388,984)
[NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo, 12/07/18) – 33,475 (3,959,987)
[NSW] Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity (Koei Tecmo, 11/20/20) – 22,648 (278,612)
[NSW] Pokemon Sword / Shield (The Pokemon Company, 11/15/19) – 21,081 (3,852,055)
[NSW] Splatoon 2 (Bundle Version Included) (Nintendo, 07/21/17) – 19,871 (3,656,361)

MK8 Deluxe still outselling the 3 above it, but the progress is slow. Hyrule Warriors, a brand new game only selling half of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Last Year for comparison.

01./01. [NSW] Pokemon Sword / Shield # (Pokemon Co.) {2019.11.15} (¥5.980) - 288.199 / 2.744.658 (+24%)
07./07. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo) {2017.04.28} (¥5.980) - 37.835 / 2.618.126 (+69%)
09./08. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate # (Nintendo) {2018.12.07} (¥7.200) - 34.085 / 3.417.667 (+61%)
12./12. [NSW] Splatoon 2 # (Nintendo) {2017.07.21} (¥5.980) - 19.662 / 3.231.666 (+76%)

MK8 vs Pokemon- 126,532 to 463,071, Pokemon just released so it gained YoY.
MK8 vs Smash- 799,541 to 571,003, Only ~220k gained for MK8
Mk8 vs Splatoon 2- 613,540 to 267,377, 350k gained for MK8, realistically the only game MK8 can pass next year,

Mk8 will always have 2022 to outsell Pokemon and Smash though.



Pikmin 3 is having quite the run. If only it had just a slightly better performance in the West.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

Holy shit, next week might actually be Switch games for all 30 titles and considering Cyberpunk's massive drop and the lack of new Playstation titles that is more then possible.

  • Software will surpass 5 million next week, while hardware will probably end up very close to last year's result
  • As mentioned earlier we didn't witness huge YoY growth for Ring Fit only because Nintendo didn't priortize Japan
  • Despite no title of Sword / Shield scope, the 3 million the game achieved would actually be matched by the higher overall results of 2020
  • Sakuna' stock this week was below 6.6K which was suprising


The Neptunia PS5 game that came out this week didn't chart at all.
