  1. Golden week must have wiped out supply. Numbers are down across the board.

    MK8 doing decent numbers, Zelda holding steady.

  2. It must be the novelty of the Switch, and the fact that it’s a console/handheld hybrid that’s making it sell so good. Because there’s still not enough games on the Switch for SO many people to want it. I know why I bought one. But I don’t know what other people’s reason was. And how can that many people want Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, unless they never bought the Wii U version? I’m just about finished with Breath Of The Wild. So I’m going to be bored with the Switch for many months while waiting for Super Mario Odyssey. Since I care nothing about Splatoon 2.

  3. 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:

    I also wonder why the huge dip in sales. *shrug*
