    Great to see ARMS back.

  • Roto Prime
    • Eagle367

      An explosion will happen in regards to the sales. But I am more interested in how XC2 will do hopefully it can get 200000 first week and worldwide 1 mil first month or maybe even week

      • Roto Prime

        Man, Japan is crazy, how could they not love Xenoblade as much as we do, I will never forgive them for what they did to X, I had to wait 8 months for the game to come out…..They got it first and gived no craps -____-

      • GoldenTriforce

        In Japan? A million is waasy too much, I’d say the game has succeeded if it doubles the original’s sales

        • Eagle367

          Worldwide. Did you purposefully ignore worldwide for some reason?

          • GoldenTriforce

            Oh no I thought you meant in Japan lol. One million for sure yeah.

  • Tga215

    Interesting damn shame about metroid 2

    • masterjedi

      Less than 100k to go for Breath of the Wild to become the 2nd best selling Zelda game of all time in Japan.

  • Stuart

    Maybe because of the Snes Mini launch?

  • Wanderlei

    Amazing evergreen status on so many Nintendo games. Not many games can still hold top spots like Splatoon and Mario Kart so long after release. Even Mario Kart 7 for 3DS keeps jumping back on the list quite often.

  • Aline Piroutek

    PES17 is the equivalent of FIFA 18?

  • hi v3.0

    Superstar Saga sold worse than Samus Returns o.o

    • I think people are starting to move from the 3DS.. It seems like 3DS game sells hasn’t been as good since the Switch came out. I wonder how Pokémon will sell?

  • Snackster1001

    Switch games holding on strong, even FIFA which seems to be doing better than in the UK

    • ronin4life

      The UK hates Nintendo and likely always will.

    • ben

      FIFA also now has stock issues in Japan;

  • GoldenTriforce

    Bad week all around

    • ben

      38k is never a bad week.

      • GoldenTriforce

        Software not hardware, Switch is still killing it

  • nekoknight

    7. [PS4] Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen – 11,666 / NEW
    8. [PS4] Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 – 10,825 / NEW
    12. [PSV] Tokyo Clanpool – 5,197 / NEW

    You all had one job…ONE JOB~! And you couldn’t even surpass FIFA Soccer 2018 For Nintendo Switch’s opening week? Shame and sad!

    • Roto Prime

      Should have put Dragon’s Dogma on the Switch…..

  • ronin4life

    Pretty sure gamesales have been in a general decline for years in Japan. This week seems to have had no major releases, which are the omly times the chart looks decent.

  • ben

    The PS4 is coming to the end of its life in Japan. It is in a race for sales with a dying platform.

    • Eagle367

      Well the way it looks now 2018 will be 90% switch with all others fighting for the remaining 10%. Almost a monopoly

      • ben

        It will be a total monopoly will begin by March 2018. As soon as monhun world tail dies so does PS4.

    • Dyinglight

      blah blah blah… the same thing we heard before with the Wii U and look what happened to that sorry excuse of a console.
      Nintendrones and their never ending delusion. Patehtic.
      Again, Japan does not equal the world you moron.

  • Eagle367

    When will DX11 come on switch? When it does and then you have Odyssey and you already have splatoon and it will all be taken home by Pokémon next year. It would honestly not surprise me if the switch crosses PS4 lifetime sales and PSV lifetime sales by the end of next year. Then it will be all history. And I’d Niny can produce the stock then it can outpace what PS4 was selling in USA easily. Europe is the only issue here where Sony reigns supreme but it might be close and finally who knows what will happen with China. At this point only bottleneck to switch sales is how much Ninty can produce the system. Also why in the hell did EA produce such low stock of FIFA 18 for switch? It’s like they don’t want money. Even now if they produce more I am sure Europe alone other than UK will eat them all up

    • ben

      In fairness to EA the switch version of the game has sold better than the Wii versions. EA thinks the switch is a casual gamers console, despite the fact it is the only pure gaming console on the market. Still EA had no idea that the switch user base would actually buy so many copies of FIFA. I am sure FIFA was expecting less than 100k world wide for the switch version.


    Uf bad debut for pokken!

    Bad week in general!
