Gamekult has a new interview up with Nintendo France’s Philippe Lavoue. Among other things, Lavoue discussed sales expectations for Switch.

So far, Nintendo is seeing pre-orders similar to those of Wii in France. The company also expects to sell 800,000 units this year, which would be the lifetime sales of Wii U. That includes 95,000 units on day one with a near 100 percent conversion rate with Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Gray is currently more popular than the neon option at the moment. However, Lavoue thinks things will ultimately shift in the opposite direction.

In an interview with alistdaily, GameStop senior director of merchandising Eric Bright spoke about Switch in-depth. One big takeaway is that the retailer is seeing “tremendous demand.”

He said:

“We’ve seen tremendous demand for Switch. And of the initial allocation of pre-orders we took, the majority of them were done by PowerUp Reward customers. They’re definitely looking for this device. We have a ways to go before we satisfy all the demand that’s out there.”

Bright brought up several positive points about Switch: the portable factor, Q1 launch, third-party games, and support of indies.

In its first week, Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 Professional sold around 125,000 copies in Japan. Dengeki now provides us with additional details about the game’s performance.

Joker 3 Professional sold less than DS’ Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 Professional, which achieved first week sales of 164,000 copies and 638,000 units lifetime. However, it did manage to sell through 90 percent of its initial shipment.

The sales ratio between Joker 2 Professional and original Joker 2 (lifetime sales of 1.32 million) was 48.3 percent. Considering how the original Joker 3’s lifetime sales were 660,000, total sales for the new Professional version would be expected at 318,000 copies. The important point will be whether Square Enix can attract new users in addition to the existing players.

The NPD report for January is in. No Nintendo titles were present in the top ten, but we do still have some news about sales in the United States last month.

NPD reports that the NES Classic Edition outsold Wii U, making it the third best-selling console of the month. Perhaps unsurprisingly at the month, the hardware managed to outsell Wii U.
