And here are the software charts:

Thanks to Famitsu, we now have sales data for Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee in Japan. In its first three days, the two games sold 664,198 copies. This figure accounts for physical copies, download cards, Poke Ball Plus bundles, and Switch bundles. Digital sales are not included.

Pokemon: Let’s Go had the second best debut of any Switch game. It only trailed Splatoon 2, which managed to sell slightly more at 670,000 units.

Understandably, Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Eevee provided a huge boost to Switch sales. The console sold 180,585 units – or three times more than the previous week.


As reported by the NPD today, Super Mario Party ranked fifth in the United States software sales charts for October. We have a bit of additional insight into the game’s performance.

Super Mario Party has become the third fastest-selling entry in the franchise based on the first two months in market. It only trails the original Mario Party and Mario Party 8.

Super Mario Party also charted in September, coming in at #9.


Another round of data is in from this month’s NPD report. Along with the best-sellers on Switch and 3DS specifically for the month of October, we also have a list of the games that have sold the best through 2018. Continue on below for the full results.

Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee were some of the biggest game releases this past week. The first region to report sales is the UK, where the two titles did pretty well all things considered.

An initial figure puts the Pokemon: Let’s Go games at 116,000 copies sold – not including digital. Pikachu was apparently the more popular version by quite a bit.

A couple of weeks after it appeared in the west, the 3DS remake of Luigi’s Mansion has debuted in Japan. In its first week, the game sold about 27,000 copies. Dengeki further reports a sell-through rate of 45%.

Dengeki adds that Luigi’s Mansion’s initial sales seem a bit slow given the performance of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. The latter game sold nearly 350,000 copies in its first week and over one million overall.

We do have to remember a couple of things here. First, many players have moved on from 3DS to Switch. We also have to keep in mind that this is ultimately a remake. It’ll be interesting to see how Luigi’s Mansion 3 does in 2019.
