  1. That’s not bad for Daemon X Machina. I’m really enjoying the game. There will probably be big Switch numbers next week with the Lite release

    1. That’s an interesting point, it didn’t occur to me that Switch Lite would trigger a wave of new customers.

      Although I’d think Switch games across the board would get an influx of sales and the more popular ones would take the lead still. Old Games like Mario Kart, Smash, Mario Maker, as well as Link’s Awakening coming out the same day as the Switch Lite, will probably shove aside DxM pretty quickly

  2. You can see the the total sales for Nintendo’s big hitters is impressive.
    But look at minecraft though. That’s kids for ya!
