Japan: Nintendo Switch Sells 74K And Nintendo 3DS Sells 21K

It is that time of the week again when we find out how well video game software and hardware sold in Japan. This week saw the release of the highly anticipated Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch which as expected shot straight to number one. However, it would seem as though Japan is still suffering from Nintendo Switch stock shortages as the system didn’t sell as well as expected given the launch of Mario Kart.

  1. I really wasn’t expecting this kind of numbers, really good job. Keep up that momentum, with ARMS and Splatoon around the corner, I’m sure we (as fans) are going to be fine


  2. Sold again more than all rest combined.
    Off to a really good start and all this achieved with 2 ports from the Wii U.
    Splatoon 2 will explode the bank in Japan.

    1. Europe. They use dots to seperate their units. So 74.217 is 74,217.

      It’s strange considering that, in the past, these sales charts have always been Americanized. The source for the article may be different this time around.

      1. It looks like you gonna be an appendice of U.S.A. instead of a leading european country. You already share so many things with them.
        Eventually Scotland will fight to stay, they have always been proud of being europeans. Better if thay change to the metric system and everything else, dots too.


      2. We don’t be use . in everyday numbers. Dates use /, currency uses . to separate pounds and pennies or euros and cents, and , is used to separate numbers 10,000 and above. So these stats aren’t reflective of Europe.


      3. ||Don’t talk to me slave unless you evolve and become civilized…||


  3. Hey Sickr !! How about if you make a special article That consider (and updated each week) all the weeks for nintendo Japan salles or US and create a sketch-drawing for sells status and keep that article on the “Top Posts” and update it each week so some can see all the recored sold switch consoles for each week all together week by week even after 5-6 months


  4. King Kalas X3 {Greatness Awaits. This use to be something that awaited those for all consoles. It's sad it's mostly just a PS4 slogan these days. Maybe Nintendo will get back to that greatness with the Switch. Only time will tell.} says:

    *claps* Let’s hope the amount of games for Switch start reaching such nice numbers, too. (Not matching actual numbers, mind you. Although, it would be nice if the Switch ended up with thousands of games to choose from if there is a nice balance between AAA, indie, & shovelware games. 60% AAA, 37% indie, & 3% trash.)
