PS4 and Xbox also grew a little.

But the Switch is total monster in Japan.
This was the Switch's highest selling week, even higher than launch week :O. Animal Crossing also just had the best launch for a Switch title, beating out both Pokemon and Smash's launch weeks which is crazy.

Woah! I know AC is very popular, and its sales are expected. I totally didn't expect it pulling Switch sales this much.

390k this week? Yet people were saying last weeks Switch wasn't selling as high because supply constraints? My ass. Suddenly and magically no supply constraints this time, even though covid still going strong.

I should learn to ignore fanboys reasoning for anything.

It's a good moment to enjoy. From what I understand these highs we won't get for a while anymore..

Nintendo was saving Switch stock for Animal Crossing's launch, which is why there was stock available this week. Before, thanks to the Coronavirus in China, the original Switch was supply constrained, not the Lite. Nintendo also released an Animal Crossing themed original Switch this week.

Normally however, the original is the more popular model (like Ring Fit only really works well with it) so thus overall Switch sales were a bit down the past couple of weeks. If you had been keeping track, the original Switch sales went down to like 4K one week because there was so little supply (the Lite was fine however).

Also Japan isn't actually locked down for covid 19 unlike other countries. While that may change in the near future though, but during Animal Crossing's release, only the schools were closed.
