8/10 first game are for Switch. Another nice week for Nintendo in Japan. I find though the Ys VIII numbers low for its release.

Its the third time it releases over there Vita in 2016, ps4 some time later and switch now, so its not going to sell as much

Ys VIII worldwide has done really well. But, Japan is meh.

Razmiran1073d ago

Oh I didnt know
I loved the game tho, went out and bought 1-3 in steam yesterday

NIS put out a vague statment saying Ys VIII had a bigger week on the Switch than the PS Vita and PS4 versions (separately, not combined). So let's wait for the final numbers.

Japanese hardware sales as of 07/01/2018 according to Media Create:

PS4 (released 02.22.2014): 6,851,509*

SWITCH (released 03.03.2017): 4,506,235

*includes Pro sales

Switch is doing very well in Japan. Curious how sales will be when Pokémon and Smash release.

Pokemon and Smash will make the hardware sales absolutely explode in Japan. If the Switch isn't ahead of PS4 by then (which I think can happen), it'll definitely do it after those release.

Geobros1074d ago

wow!! Interesting analysis. so date to date, Switch has better numbers than PS4 in Japan.

michellelynn09761073d ago

Octopath will be the game that dethrones Mario Tennis. Easily.

Switch sales are continuing to climb in Japan while PS4 sales seem to have peaked in Japan. A new Gundam game releases and sales went down from the previous week.The Crew 2 didn't seem to help either. Crazy. KMH 3 can't come out soon enough. You can't blame this one PS4 stock issues.
