The holiday season's annual sales boom is now entirely over.
And this one's for Peachette.
I used to think it would take fall 2019 for the Switch to surpass the PS4 in Japan, but at the rate of things I'm more looking at E3 2019 or even sooner.
And Smash Ultimate rules the New Year.
And Smash Ultimate rules Christmas.
The Switch in Japan is already less than one million units away from the PS4. Which in conjunction with its momentum means you really must not like consumer money as a Japanese developer if you're not putting your game on Nintendo's platform.
And Smash gets even bigger sales numbers.
There's usually a hardware sales dip right after the launch of a big title, but given the holiday season and other parameters, the Switch only lost 9 units from its Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launch momentum.
The Ultimate Smashing continues.
Nearly 300,000 Switches sold in a single week in Japan thanks to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate lands with a bang.
Weird, they only showed sales numbers for the top 20 this time again.
Pokémon Let's Go enjoying its third and final week on top before the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
40 weeks in a row. Also, Media Create now shows sales numbers for each of the 50 titles in charts.
That's week two for Eevee and Pikachu.
Now the holiday season really begins.
Oof. 600k+ for Pokémon Let's Go. 200k+ for the Nintendo Switch.
The Switch is now back above 50K a week and it will only get better once the holiday season really starts kicking in.
