Octopath sold pretty much as expected.

The first week is a success, but the follow up performance will be limited thanks to shortages. SE/Nintendo/JPN retailers keep repeating some of the same mistakes.

Captain Toad with a stronger than expected debut. Well deserved.

PS.
10./09. [NSW] The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild # <ADV> (Nintendo) {2017.03.03} (¥6.980) - 6.622 / 1.043.717 (+5%)

Really solid opening for Octopath. Unless shipments completely dry up next 3-4 weeks, 200K+ should be easily achievable with digital.

110k for Octopath. Nice! Higher than my 102k estimate.

Nintendo nearly owning the top 10. Wow!

What drove the large increase in Splatoon 2 sales this week?

That's a great debut for Captain Toad and a good one for Octopath Traveler! Though I thought HW would be higher.

Btw, how does Media Create, Famitsu, etc. track game sales? Do they ask retailers or what?

Very close to a Nintendo top 10.

Good results all around, I guess the "new" Splatoon 2 bundle didn't push that much extra hardware.

Which week last year did Splatoon 2 release in? It's gonna be hard for Switch hardware to stay up YOY when we reach that point.

EDIT: Ah Joseki's chart answers my question.

Solid opening for Octopath. Nice opening for Toad, decent bump for Splatoon 2. Other software a bit lower, but that is to be expected in a week like this. Nice.

Isn't this much higher than expected? I kept seeing estimates below 100k and closer to 90k. 110k with complete sale out seems like a great number. I wonder how high it could have gone if there had been ample stock

Great sales for Octopath but they're probably going to tank next week due to the shortages. Just hope that the game can have the legs it deserves instead of being cut off at the start by Square and retailer's shoddy planning.

Nintendomination, although I would have liked to see switch hardware get a significant boost, is there still a supply issue?
I don't think there is still a supply issue. Numbers are okay given it's the summer. And I would never expect Octopath to be a system seller. It's selling to the core crowd that already own a Switch I would imagine.

OT did the best it could considering the low shipments. Still pretty solid and I'm expecting it to have good legs due to demand.

Switch hardware sales are pretty much the same. Not much of a surprise.

Can someone remind me which tracker includes Amazon data and which one includes download cards? If I remember correctly one does Amazon and one does Download codes but can’t recall which is which.

Octopath did better than I expected even with shortages... impressive.

Mary Skelter 2 sales seem tad disappointing with it only having about the half of the sales of original vita release, but I guess that was to be expected...

And lastly, rip Zanki Zero.

According to the last thread I believe MC does Amazon and Famitsu does download cards.

Good Octopath debut and I hope it continues to perform well. I have a feeling it can go over 200k and reach new heights for these type of games. Word of mouth will be key here. Might also draw in more 30/40 plus folks who have fond memories of the old RPG days.

Zelda boost is awesome. Seems like it will sell well the next couple of years.

Mario Tennis is doing great too, lets see where it ends up but I have high hopes for that one. The quality of that game is high.

Doesn't seem too bad for Capitan Todd?
Good stuff for Octopath, especially considering the stock reports and how it's not counting digital.

Well I was referring to my personal expectations. Something like 70 or 80k would have been crazy for a game like OT and all its positive buzz on a system like Switch.

Good opening for octopath traveler, although possible supply issues could prevent it from doing well in following weeks.
Captain toad switch opening ahead the wiiU version.
Evergreens dominating the rest of the chart.
Switch hardware sales increasing, and ps4 hardware maintaining its previous week's sales.
Overall not a bad week.
