The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild now has over 200 weeks of consecutive Top 30 appearances.

nintendo to sony: you were suppossed to save the japanese market, not leave it in darkness!
sony: I HATE YOU!



So, Pikmin 3 is at 500k physically as of these numbers. With digital numbers included, I'm guessing it must be somewhere within the 650-800k range, which would make it the best selling Pikmin game of all time in Japan in just a little less than 2 months.

Wow.

Can't help but wonder what other dormant Nintendo IPs could do big numbers on the Switch if they were given the chance.



NSW:Get out of here PS4 your disrupting my totalitarian video game power

That's huge! Did any other game achieve that before?



Around the Network

MK8 Deluxe #3 in both weeks, completely dominating the other older games. Animal Crossing might be like MK8 Deluxe in 3 years.

Top 10 3rd Party Publishers: 

  1. Konami - 1.661.290 (7.53%)

  8. Atlus - 149.898
  9. Spike Chunsoft - 112.408
  10. Cygames - 111.094
  • Konami more than doubled their sales YoY, will end up the Top Selling 3rd Party publisher for 2020
  • Bandai Namco had the biggest drop YoY, falling by about 1 million sales YoY
  • Square could have been flat if Bravely Default 2 launched instead they also lose ground, likely around 500-600K YoY
  • Capcom & Sega also saw declines YoY due to a lack of Switch games
  • Koei Tecmo will see great growth YoY
  • GameAddict and Teyon Games barely missed out on the Top 10, Human Fall Flat should continue to sell greatly in 2021
  • Marvelous and Capcom will be making the biggest gains YoY in 2021


Witnessing the decline of the PlayStation brand in Japan...

Pikmin 3 Deluxe will be the bestselling game of the franchise next week.
Currently its still the OG Pikmin at 502k
And that is without digital.

For Momotaro Dentetsu it is not even a competition.
Next bestselling game of the franchise is MD7 on PS1 at only 700k



Animal Crossing is now the 3rd bestselling game ever in retail.
Now ahead of New Super Mario Bros (NDS) at 6.428.457

Only
2. Super Mario Bros (NES) - 6.800.000
1. Pokemon Red/Green/Blue - 7.936.360
are still ahead.


And Animal Crossing is still not even one year on the market lol.

Pokemon Red/Green/Blue sold 10.23 million: https://www.nintendo.co.jp/nom/0006/05/index.html
