When we talk about Nintendo Switch, we should expect to hear the word success, and when we talk about its sales in Japan, we should not be naive enough to think that it won’t be topping this week because it has topped once again. Yesterday Media Create charts for video game hardware and software sales for Japan were released, and turns out Nintendo Switch Sales have topped the charts, once again in Japan.
Nintendo Switch Sales of over 36,000 units this past week, have put this console on the top in Japan. What is interesting is the fact that this console has managed to remain on top in spite of the fact that top four software slots have been taken, by the new PlayStation releases. Which include, Dark Souls Remastered, Detriot Become Human and PS4 as well as, PS Vita versions of Persona 3+5: Dancing respectively.
Given the fact that these PS4 releases have topped in software, PS4 sales still came up with 17,400 units this week. Which is a pretty big gap compared to Nintendo Switch Sales. All this definitely points out that nothing will cause the Japanse market to actually buy the PS4. Final Fantasy certainly could not do it, neither could Dragon Quest, nor could Resident Evil or Metal Gear, in fact, Monster Hunter world also could not.
Aside from that, in software, Nintendo games like Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Kirby: Star Allies, Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild have done exceptionally well. In fact, Legend Of Zelda Breath of the Wild if keeps on going at this pace, it will be hitting 1 million units sold mark in one week.
Considering Nintendo mainly targets Japan first, this next bit might not be much of a surprise. Turns out Nintendo recently confirmed that Dockless Nintendo Switch, which has been available in Japan will remain available in Japan only and apparently the company has no plans to release it outside of Japan.
Having said that, What are your thoughts about Nintendo, always primarily focusing on Japan with its products? Let us know in the comments below.
