Fantastic opening for Kirby.
Switch continues its streak of excellent sales.
4.5+million for the year is looking likelier by the week.

I was expecting a bit more for Kirby, but it should have legs.

PS5 had a nice boost, and Xbox is probably out of stock.



Kirby sucking up a real mouthful of sales with this one.



Wonderful to see HAL's ambitious step forward for the series rewarded with strong sales. Well deserved.

Looks like Ghostwire fizzled in Japan; being console exclusive to the PS5 turned out to be a big handicap. Lucky for them they're on PC as well.



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)

So Kirby hasn't moved any consoles at all. The game sold pretty good, though.

Although the overall sales are quite low, its good to see Playstion reclaiming sales spots within the top 30. I think there are some quite months ahead but from Summer late summer onwards I think there's a conistent stream of JPRGS/big releases again



Ghostwire a flop as expected. It seems to have performanced slightly better in Japan than other markets.

Its such a shame that the core gameplay doesn't quite come together because I love the aesthetics.



It's fun to see Triangle Strategy still in quite close to the Top-tier of the chart. It's a really nice S-RPG with a good WoM so I hope it continues with the slow legs for a while just like Octopath Traveler did.
