It’s funny, for all the campaigning of people like Jim Sterling that pre-order culture is anti-consumer and there’s no advantage to doing so, if more people had pre-ordered Octopath then we might not be seeing these shortages/more people would have been able to get the game they wanted.
I preordered and even digitally, I got it for 43 Euro which is a real bargain, no need for a physical copy.

And yeah if i were Japanese I would have pre ordered a few months prior release, this game won't drop much in price anyway.

Above 110k is waaay above my 75k prediction, and I'm super happy with that. SE apparently shipped more than I thought.

Captain Toad is around what I expected. Good numbers.

You have to cut YSO some slack. :)
After weeks of overestimating bomba new releases, they are probably more cautious in projecting FW sales.

I would also say its probably more difficult to make accurate projections for Switch software- I'm assuming a lot of their initial predictions rely on pre order numbers, etc. - which are typically not as relevant to the final first week number for Switch stuff.

bottom 6 ads are leak.
たこ(1st ad) = octopus > octopath
やまぎわじゅいち(2nd) > じゅういち = 十一(3rd) = 11 > 110k
キノ(4th)+ピノ(5th) > キノピオ = toad
ゴロー(6th) > 56 > 56k


That's an admirable effort. I guess I am not worthy to see all the same ads, as the first two are about some funk music and some gorilla dude. Gotta practice more and increase my chikara :)

Not surprised at Octopath doing >100K, Captain Toad on the other hand opening with bigger numbers than the Wii U is a bit surprising - considering launch timing.

Is Splatoon 2 Bundle next week?

Taiko bad impressions are probably exagerated and the casual audience of this game will probably don’t care.
That's what I think too (besides, it's already getting a Day 1 patch, it was released today in fact).

Nope, we're getting the numbers today (was """"released"""" on July 13th).
