Amazing to see RingFit (which is over 1yr old) still charting. I think it's over 6million in sales now.
Top 3 best selling JRPG in Japan sku based.

1. Pokemon SwSh - 3.8M(NSW)
2. Ringgit Adventure - 1.8M(NSW)
3. Zelda BOTW - 1.7M(NSW)

Dragon quest and final fantasy era is over for JRPG genre in Japan.

Lifetime sales for next gen consoles at this point in Japan :

PS - 200k
Xbox - 28k

Most likely sell out so It could be higher if not, but it doesn't change the switch overwhelming domination.

Thats not because something is selling better that the other is 'done'. FF and DQ are still cultural franchises over JP.

Keep that in mind before hyperbole.
Momotaro Dentetsu from Konami is going to outsell FF7R in Japan.

FF franchise sales in Japan is falling greatly while Dragon quest needed to release on three platforms this gen in order to match with a previous exclusive entry sales.

This is surpising - Japan usually isn't keen on digital only. Altrough it might be case of any ps5 reaching store being sold :)

Zelda has always been an action-adventure series, and Dragon Quest XI sales' split doesn't mean it is losing popularity in Japan. It just means people played it on different platforms.

Also people in Japan really like the Switch don't they?

Zelda is classified as a JRPG in Japan, Capcom also considered BOTW as a JRPG too.

Well the top 2 best selling PS5 software attach rate ..

PS5 hardware - 201K
1. Spiderman MM ~25K
2. DeS ~25K
2 games attach rate is around 25% of total PS4 hardware

VS Nintendo Switch top 2 games after 3 weeks on the market.

Switch hardware - 441K
1. Zelda BOTW ~263K
2. 1-2 Switch ~116K
2 games attach rate is around 86% of total Switch hardware

A dire situation for PS5 software sales.

  • Compared to last year there will be a few more 3rd Parties which should make the list
