The Switch version also happened to release on a much more attractive platform /shrug
So it is the combination of both?
Dragon Ball always resonate with Nintendo fanbase as we see with how well they perform on 3DS.
And now with portability combo, it sold to its maximum potential.

Considering first week sell-through was 65% iirc, and considering several stores needed restocks as the week went on because they ran out of copies, would it be fair to estimate that the game managed to sell almost 100% of its initial shipment? If so, that'd be a very minor drop (65% sell-through vs. 35%, so a drop of 46% or thereabouts). The drop's probably a bit more than that, especially considering a drop of 46% from GW would be crazy.

Many games treated like a "Nintendo 1st party title", but not all of them selling like ToS, so such arguments was always kinda laughable. ToS had an amazing WoM and was an amazing game itself, one of the best in the series, if not the best one. This is the main reason why it sold so well.

We have a lot of Nintendo's own 1st party RPGs (and not only RPGs) with weak sales as well, even on super popular consoles (and GameCube sales were awful in Europe, as well as its advertising in the region. It was unpopular overall).

I'm... not even sure what's your point?

We're here to talk about numbers, I mentionned that Zestiria is close to Symphonia in the west and that both are outliers due to the reasons I stated.
For example Bravely Default is a comparable third party JRPG treated by Nintendo like a 1st party game that had great success as well, of course it's a quality title which is why (I hope) Nintendo choose them in the first place.

I won't go into further details (despite being a lot of room to do so) the way you word your post doesn't really entice me to do so :(

15./12. [NSW] Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Legacy for Nintendo Switch (Bandai Namco Games) {2018.04.26} - 4,580 / 12,811

VS

30./14. [PS4] Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Legacy (Bandai Namco Games) {2017.07.27} - 1,733 / 6,444

77 units from doubling the PS4 version's LTD launch aligned. Insanely irrelevant .

So it might be that Switch/some Switch games could have a softer drop that the usual post GW drop ?

Does anybody have the corresponding numbers for last year ?
Irc Switch shortages were still in full switch back then, but it might give some guidance,anyway.

YSO predictions
1. [PS4] Caligula Overdose <25k
2. [SWI] Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze <20k
3. [SWI] Splatoon 2 <15k

I think Chris said before he wasn't going be around to post this time, so I'll do it.

These Splatoon 2 legs remind me of when Splatoon 1 launched.

Those Media Threads were pretty fun. That title just kept on surprising me and I was one of those that was positive is was going to succeed and not flop.

If DK is really out of stock, it will sell a bit better than this.

The interesting part is that they predicted 25k iirc for 2nd week (a little more than 3rd week) so it might beat their expectations for 2nd week.

The game enjoyed a very soft drop in the UK (-32%), so despite Golden Weak it might not have a harsh drop.

remember that'd be DK's 3rd week.
around 20k seems good.


for DBXV2, I think there's been a big overlap between Nintendo fans recently and certain animes.

I mean everyone knows Goku likely won the smash character poll.
Kingdom Hearts would be big on Switch imo

Mr. Takafumi Muto: "Last week no new release was released and the Nintendo Switch "Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze" ranked number two for the second consecutive week. Ranking also became immovable from 1st to 4th, and it became a calm week. The Nintendo Switch "Splatoon 2" ranked up to 5th place is in a situation where the figures are growing with the influence of "Octo-Expansion" scheduled to be delivered this summer."

先週は新作の発売が1タイトルも無く、Nintendo Switch「ドンキーコング トロピカルフリーズ」が2週連続の1位となりました。ランキングも1~4位まで不動となっており、落ち着いた週となりました。5位にランクアップしているNintendo Switch「Splatoon 2」は、今夏配信予定の「オクト・エキスパンション」の影響もあり、数字を伸ばしている状況となります。

Splatoon and Cia might hold better than expected.

Majority of Switch software sales post Golden Week depend on the hardware availability - this is one of the reasons I'm expecting a softer drop for Switch titles this week. When we look at it historically 3DS/Switch has had around 30-50% drop in hardware sales post GW and 50-72% drop in software sales.

Code:
Week 19 2012:
3DS HW - 46.425(-49%)
3DS SW - 67.984(-72%)

Fire Emblem Awakening - 16K(-61%)
Super Mario 3D Land - 11K(-61%)
Monster Hunter - 9K(-45%)
Mario Kart 7- 9K(-60%)
Kid Icarus: Uprising - 7K(-59%)
Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games - 4K(-64%)
Code:
Week 19 2013:
3DS HW - 49.763(-35%)
3DS SW - 193.150(-50%)

Friend Collection: New Life - 103K(-50%)
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon - 31K(-51%)
Animal Crossing: New Leaf - 25K(-46%)
Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission - 7K(-51%)
New Super Mario Bros. 2 - 5K(-50%)
Tousouchuu: Shijou Saikyou no Hunter-Tachi Kara Nigekire! - 4K(-45%)
Mario Kart 7 - 4K(-46%)
Taiko no Tatsujin: Chibi Dragon to Fushigi na Orb - 3K(-41%)
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate - 3K(-44%)
Detective Conan: Marionette Symphony - 3K(-47%)
Code:
Week 20 2014:
3DS HW - 23.600(-34%)
3DS SW - 80.397(-54%)

Yo-kai Watch - 30K(-49%)
Mario Golf: World Tour - 9K(-65%)
Mario Party: Island Tour - 8K(-60%)
Pokemon X / Y - 5K(-37%)
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call - 4K(-56%)
Kirby Triple Deluxe - 4K(-55%)
Monster Hunter 4 - 3K(-29%)
Mario Kart 7 - 3K(-28%)
Style Savvy: Trendsetters - Tokimeki Up! - 3K(-55%)
Animal Crossing: New Leaf - 3K(-39%)

Code:
Week 20 2015:
3DS HW - 16.355(-35%)
3DS SW - 42.485(-65%)

Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition - 13K(-64%)
Style Savvy 3: Kira Kira Code - 7K(-66%)
Bravely Second: End Layer - 5K(-44%)
Pokemon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire - 3K(-57%)
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS  - 3K(-56%)
Code:
Week 19 2016:
3DS HW - 17.595(-33%)
3DS SW - 45.676(-71%)

Kirby: Planet Robobot - 24K(-70%)
Yo-Kai Sangokushi - 10K(-69%)
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 - 5K(-59%)
Code:
Week 19 2017:
Switch HW - 24.712(-48%)
Switch SW - 51.766(-57%)

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - 36K(-60%)
Monster Hunter Double Cross - 15K(-51%)
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild  - 11K(-46%)
1-2-Switch - 3K(-64%)

If we see for example a 35% drop in HW for the Switch this week it would lead to 34K sales, while a 60% drop in software would be around 94K software sales. Personally I see this figure as a bit too low. Personally I think 45-50% drop for Switch software is looking likely. I can see DKTF being close to selling it's first shipment. A lot of the titles more popular among kids to have a bigger drop(Labo Variety, Snack World, MK8D & SMO), while Zelda and Splatoon 2 both seemed to have gone up at various retailers so both should have the smallest drops out of the Switch titles post-Golden Week.

DKTF with a 60% second week drop would be 35K
Splatoon 2 with a 35% drop would be 19K
Kirby with a 45% drop would be 17K
Labo Variety with a 50% drop would be 16K
MK8D with a 40% drop would be 14K
Snack World with a 40% drop would be 7K
Zelda with a 35% drop would be 7K
SMO with a 45% drop would be 6K

Preorders for Famicom Mini Shonen opened today. Price went from 5.980 of the original to 7.980 yen, matching Super Famicom Mini. Since it's an Anniversary Edition and only for Japan it will be a very limited print.

Wonder if there is any chance of a LJN Superheroes licensed games NES mini classic counterpart for the west
