Ska Studios hasn’t provided specific sales figures for Salt and Sanctuary on Switch. But according to the developer’s Michelle Juett it “sold super well” in its first week on the eShop. Juett also mentioned that it rivaled Salt and Sanctuary’s first week Steam numbers.

Konami said a few months ago that Super Bomberman R was approaching one million copies worldwide. That goal has been officially reached, the company confirmed today.

The news was celebrated with a new video, posted below, of Bomberman bungee jumping. Because why not?

Switch wasn’t the best-selling platform in the United States during June. That honor went to the NES Classic Edition, thanks to the recent restock. It was the highest unit-selling hardware platform. As relayed by NPD’s Mat Piscatella, this is the first time a Nintendo Entertainment System console has led in monthly unit sales since NPD tracking began in 1995.

Despite not being number one, there is still good news for Switch. Nintendo’s console saw its sales rise over 50% in June year-over-year.
