The Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association, or CESA for short, has some new information about the state of Japan’s video game industry. The Nintendo Switch has been very successful in Japan, and it turns out that it is so popular that it has brought Japan’s video game console market out of a decline that started in 2007. In 2017, Japan’s video gaming market hit 386,700,000,000 yen, or $3,500,000,000 USD. This is a year-on-year increase of 22.7%. The CESA said that the only reason why the trend was reversed was because of the Nintendo Switch.
