      1. I guess you have to take into account the pre-orders as those people will get the game right away. And, being a hand held, Japan is likely to sell the most at least in terms of market ratio.

    1. Zelda attach rate at least 2/3 (it’s the only game out there). And I presume japanese will buy the stupid 1-2-Switch ‘en masse’. Though I would like see it flopping.

      1. Right, Dragon Quest can lower Zelda’s attach rate. Though less than 1/2 would be a real failure. And even if Zelda isn’t the most appreciated IP there it should be the most bought game.

      1. It’s already defeated, it’s bought only by Microsoft employees over there. Move the attention of the High Command in North America Quadraxis. ^^
