With the first half of 2019 now just a memory, we have been gradually learning how well Nintendo did during this time period. In Japan, Famitsu has posted a chart of the Top 5 most successful publishers of the first half of 2019. The positions were determined by the number of software units that the publisher was able to sell in Japan. Thanks to evergreen titles and new releases on the Switch, such as New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Nintendo was able to make the #1 spot with ease. In fact, Nintendo’s 3,480,000 units sold is almost the totals of #2, #3 and #4 combined. The full chart is down below.
