Switch went up. How come? Also, looks like Switch Fit (RFA) is gonna pass 1 mil.
I'm guessing Ring Fit is continuing to drive some hardware sales and maybe Brain Training as well.

Damn PS4 is finished. I doubt PS5 catches PS4 lifetime either in Japan. Home consoles are dying there and with the rumoured price of it it won’t be intriguing enough to anyone but the most hardcore.

Switch up 30% already YoY is crazy too. Animal Crossing is going to push sales over the limit.
The fact the regular Switch is still easily the primary SKU for the Switch (as in not the Lite) seems to suggest that people in Japanese still like the functionality of a home console. I think Sony's problem is largely their platform appeals to a limited audience in Japan and they haven't done much to expand on that. JP third parties are largely making the same titles and they're all declining. Nintendo appeals to all ages and demographics, and has made new IPs to appeal to new customers (Splatoon, Ring Fit Adventure, ARMs, etc.)

Seeing those Pokemon numbers reminds me of Ray Liotta's speech at the end of Goodfellas where he boasts he could burn through all his money in a flash and then rob some place and get it all back. It's like they have a "billion dollar" button that they can pull out anytime they need the money.

It's also good to see Ring Fit do so well. I'm a big fan of the Wii fitness games and it's good to see that continue to succeed.

So, Switch even higher numbers again, now @ 100,961 without any new releases this week or anything notable in recent weeks :messenger_dizzy:

Any big games coming this month or something? Animal Crossing seems quite far to be affecting this, over a full month away still.

It is because of Animal Crossing largely, and possibly the fear of shortages. After the posted week the announced Switch shortages due to China will likely hit in JP.
