It's kind of "weird" how Pokemon Sun/Moon underperformed pretty hard by mainline Pokemon standard in Japan, whereas it sold like crazy everywhere else.

When will switch software break the million mark? Next year?
As in when a single game breaks a million? It'll be Splatoon 2 in a few weeks/bit more than a month I'd say.

Pretty nuts that Splatoon would be #2 after just a week.
Wonder how much MHXX would've sold if it was a simultaneous 3DS/Switch launch

This list is meaningless cause it doesn't nclude the two biggest games of the year Splatoon2 and dragon quest 11 which comes out in 2 days.

Dragon Quest Heroes I&II and Seiken Densetsu sold together almost 100k, that's good for two old ports.
Now if SE localised both games they could make bank.

Senken Densetsu is a complicated one since 3 never was translated except by fans, but DQI&II both released in English so IDK why they aren't releasing it.

It seems the retail version runs better than the demo that has terrible framerate. I'd be curious to see that.

I can see Final Fantasy XV is guaranteed to hit the big 1,000,000 in the near future, which is incredible for Japan these days.

Thanks for the list!

MK7 still selling almost 100k after all this time is pretty amazing.

Seing Nier selling almost as much as RE and MHS having no legs really paints a picture on the current state of Capcom. I hope their gamble with MHW worldwide sales pays off, bc Japanese sales will see a steep decline even from the MHX extension.

Legit lold @ 1 2 Switch over Horizon. Come the fuck on Japan.
Different games for different ocasions, not a hard concept to understand that one has a more mainstream appeal, even when the demographic is not there yet. Why are some "gamers" so insecure about party games?

I can see Final Fantasy XV is guaranteed to hit the big 1,000,000 in the near future, which is incredible for Japan these days.
Still hasn't sold its initial estimated shipment of over 1m. Is now sold heavily discounted, incredible downfall for the series for sure.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

3DS on top as expected but wonder where Switch would be without the shortages - great performance fromm all 3 main systems though.

Many games below top 52 sold less than 50.000 copies. Could we say they bombed? This does not look good...
Many of those were already months old by that point - these arent lifetime sales.

But let's take games like Snipperclips or The Witch and the Hundred Knights 2, only about 25000 sold since February/March. Those numbers are awful.
Snipperclips is digital only, those are download cards, which Famitsu counts as retail sales.
