I can just imagine the numbers once they release in North America. Awesome sales for the Switch Lite in Japan

That's quite the disparity between MC and Famitsu. I suppose it's somewhere in the middle of 120k and 180k?

Nintendo was smart to get the Lite out when they did. Allows it to get market penetration in the run up to Pokémon etc. When Pokémon launches it is going to be insane

I'm confused. Is it 180k total for that week or 240k? Why is the Media Crate prediction so different? (Then again it specifies first 3 days)

1. it's not prediction
2. switch only got released for 3 days last week
3. different tracker tracks different shop
4. maybe mc made mistake on their subscriber numbers (gained via Bloomberg jp article & leaked number here)? maybe famitsu made mistake in their report? who knows

I thought Capcom announced that a new Ace Attorney game was in development for the Switch a while back? Or was I dreaming about that? I really hope I wasn't dreaming about that...
