Impact Gameworks isn’t providing specific sales figures for Tangledeep’s launch on Switch. However, we do know that the game sold more in its first week on Nintendo’s console than the Steam Early Access release did in half a year. The team has already managed to recoup the costs that were required to port the game to Switch.

Interestingly, Japan is where Tangledeep has found the most success. That country accounts for 33% of all Switch sales.

Impact has further plans for Tangledeep on Switch, including a 1.02 update that fixes bugs and implements quality of life fixes. The “Legend of Shara” DLC is also a possibility if the game continues to sell well.

This week’s issue of Famitsu has a report on Japan’s best-selling games of December. We’ll publish the full chart soon (sometime after the magazine actually releases), but we do have an early tidbit. Famitsu reports that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate sold 309,229 digital copies.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 is another game that debuted in December. According to Famitsu, the Switch version sold 33,506 digital copies.

Yesterday, we reported on Capcom’s financial results, including the sales success of the games they released last year. However, they were pretty vague on the actual sales numbers, only stating that, for example, Mega Man 11 “reported strong sales”. Now, thanks to a transcript of a Q&A session that was held after Capcom’s recent financial results briefing, we have concrete numbers for some Mega Man titles.

Mega Man 11 has sold 870,000 copies last year, while Mega Man X Legacy Collection sits at 920,000 copies sold (the Q&A doesn’t make it 100% clear whether this is Legacy Collection 1 or 1+2). Note that these are the sales numbers for all platforms the games launched on, not just Nintendo Switch.
