The action RPG from publisher Bandai Namco and developer FromSoftware - Dark Souls: Remastered - sold 105,385 units first week at retail on the Nintendo Switch, according to VGChartz estimates.
VGChartz is completely sourceless, it extrapolates based on small retail samplings and that's it. They have had sales numbers up for games a month before they launched (Arc Rise Fantasia for example). Vgchartz is not a legitimate source for sales. This is not an opinion, this is a fact.
First, it's not "completely sourceless" if it gets data from retail stores, even if the data are just small samples. Second, these are always tagged as rumors anyway. You don't need to continue to flag these and comment the same comments on all of these articles like I've seen you do repeatedly. These fall within N4G guidelines.
i tend to think games like this would sell much more digitally on the switch, its just much easier for a handheld.
how stellar. lol.
It depends on how much Bandai was expecting to sell. The delay definitely hurt sales though, and probably cost them a good amount in extra labor if they had to fix the game. With a digital price drop/sale, it will probably sell a bit more. Switch seems to have a good attach rate, and it's still a rather unique game on the system. Can definitely appeal to people that enjoy Zelda. Bandai might still potentially consider the port a success. I mean, it sold more than the Xbox version the first week (four times as much), and half of what PS4 did (according to VG), even though the amount of Switch consoles sold compared to PS4 is probably a third, so a higher percentage purchased.
