  1. Seems like Switch family is poised to pass 20 million units next week in Japan alone. What are the top selling consoles in Japan?

  2. This is one game I’m excited about. Never played a Rune Factory game before so it will be my first one. Then again I’m considering SoS Olive Town when it becomes more complete in August.

    Can’t play two sim games so I have to choose.
