Great news. More units means more software means happier customers.

Gimme some of them sweet JRPGs, thanks

That's great, hopefully this will make third parties join the fun. Tricky part is making multiplat games now.

Congrats on the success, Nintendo. And ARMS being within striking distance of 1 2 Switch (a launch game) in sales after a little over a week is rather impressive.

Looking good!

Yep. I think 2018 we'll definitely see more Japanese multiplats get announced, if they aren't working on them currently.

Nintendo should go third party though, clearly, they don't have a future with their own hardware.
I wish I bought stock in Nintendo when everyone was doubting them, I saw this coming.

And Splatoon 2 is coming out in less than a month. The momentum is there for 3rd parties to ride upon.

And still no stock. If that gets fixed Splatoon is going to make this a quick trip to 2 million.

Zelda doing so well is the biggest surprise.
It was literally the biggest game at launch for anyone to buy, of course it would sell with the system

I know zelda selling in japan isn't guaranteed, but this is on a handheld and its new, i think its pretty obvious.

Good on nitnendo for the japanese sales, this will hopefully build up a player base for PS4/Switch ports so they can keep sales stable both at home and abroad

It's still kinda sorta under performing there considering it is the best game ever made.
Cue eye roll

Not sure how it compares to the sales of other Zelda games in Japan, but I kind of wanted to see Japan take to the series a bit more now that the latest main line 3D game is on a portable.
And what would they gain with that? It would affect sales of 3DS ver. of the game.
Being at the launch of a popular handheld launch probably wouldn't of been a negative at least. Don't see MHXX selling better with how Capcom handled it than if they did that.

I think downplaying this game's success in Japan is pretty funny. There was absolutely no guarantee it was going to sell this well.
