Like I said in the other thread, lower than expected for Switch hardware. Assuming its still largely sold out, I suspect Nintendo will keep emphasizing the West until the 3rd week in July or so..

Great Mario Kart numbers. Surprised Switch didn't crack 100k in hardware though.
Guess they didn't stock enough

Switch DOOMED. Nah, I just think they might have been too conservative as golden week was coming. MK8 did great considering the install base.

It is still difficult to find over there? That's probably the reason it did not explode in the chart.

Think it's more surprise Nintendo didn't try to ship more for MK8D's launch. it's the biggest title for a while. I guess they're holding back of Golden week maybe?

Other Mario Kart games didn't launch so early after the release of the systems. 280k in 3 days of sales seems good to me.

I don't know if you can be underwhelmed by the Switch sales considering it selling out and outsold all other systems combined.

Great to see BotW chugging along. What a game.

Great debit for MK, and also Zelda benefit from it. Next week will be 400 retail on switch alone. Wow.
MHXX too had another very solid week,helped by the very good dragon Ball result?
Switch numbers are hard to judge without having a clear idea of he availability
Could be sold out, but also sign of a weaker "fever" than previous weeks

At first 280k doesn't sound like much until you see there's a ~37% attach rate.

Lower than predicted numbers for Switch, but then, we were basing 100k+ on our gut instincts really.

1m Switches a month equates to 250k a week. Looking at March shipments it's feasible that they are still sticking to a split like the following:

The Americas: 40+%
Japan 20+%
RoW 35+%

and they just don't have the stock to really push for a HUGE sales week right now. Maybe they did divert some stock to Japan, but the extra here is all they could manage.

+25k for Mario Kart launch is not as big a bump as you would expect. Given the stock situation last week it's hard for me to believe the hype is over more than they sold what they shipped

Actually I expected lower sales for Switch, but higher for Mario Kart.

Could it be the lack of Switch stock what made people not to buy it yet? If we see numbers above 100.000 next week, I will assume that.

In the other thread people were saying to me that it is still sold out.so it still is a very solid result, still supy constrained


I wonder if he issue will be solved because the demand will inevitably slow down or because they will ramp up distribution

In this situation the moat important thing is to avoid crossing the streams and increase he offer while the demand is slowing down

I see NIS are onto yet another hit with Exile Election, lol. PS4 version not even in the top 30 D:

Pretty disappointing result from Gun Gun Pixies. Oh well. Compile Heart had a good run on Vita while it lasted at least.

Nice for Mario Kart. And Dragon Ball.

GAF analysts predicted 100K and its 75k so it's lower than expected. On this forum, lol.

Let's see if the momentum dies in a few months because right now it's just going to sell whatever is available.

Edit: for clarity, I don't think that's happening any time soon.

So Zelda (WiiU+Switch) should be above 500K as of this current week going by these numbers. Nice! So a million is indeed reachable at this point considering holidays coming up and then Christmas. Bomberman R still climbing its way to 100K. Hope it gets it.

37% attach rate for MK8 on Switch. *Not including digital downloads

Also have to consider that Mario Karts tend to not launch in the same year as the system's debut, and that MK8 on Switch is more or less a port, plus a few new features, so millions in Japan already own that game on Wii U.

Switch is clearly also still heavily supply-constrained, and I think sales for both the system and the game would've been quite a bit higher had everyone who wanted a Switch been able to get one. There's likely a lot of people who want Mario Kart but can't play it because they can't find a system.

Nintendo is cranking right now!
