Somewhere. I think.
Wow, wasn't expecting sales to be flat this week for the Switch. And Pokémon drop seems fairly alright.

Also:

08./20. [NSW] Super Mario Party # <ETC> (Nintendo) {2018.10.05} (¥5.980) - 8.576 / 1.154.354 (+165%)
Here's one game that's not going to fade into oblivion any time soon.

Since people are going to ask: it's because of the re-issue of the bundle with 2 Joy-Cons.

Ring Fit still suffering shortages?

Pokemon must be >500K w/digital. Digital sales would have had to drop by >81% for it to miss the mark.

Absolutely monstrous for Switch and a good hold for Pokemon. Looks like we're gonna have a crazy end to the year from Nintendo.

Hell of a HW hold for Swich

I don't know why, but those Shenmue 3 release numbers seem entirely appropriate for the series.

Some notes:

- Switch is actually up over 1m yoy now
- Mario & Sonic may actually be out of the 0-20% range this week
- Super Mario Party heard itself called shovelware and got pissed (or it was on sale?)
- PS4 is going to have a really, really rough holiday at this rate
- Pokemon drop is better than recent entries, I was expecting closer to 80%

Switch beast. What the fuck is up with dropping 144 units the week after a Pokémon release?

For comparison, other Pokémon second week drops:
01./01. [NSW] Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! / Let's Go, Eevee! # <RPG> (Pokemon Co.) {2018.11.16} (¥5.980) - 157.694 / 821.892 <60-80%> (-76%)
01./01. [3DS] Pokemon Ultra Sun / Ultra Moon # <RPG> (Pokemon Co.) {2017.11.17} (¥4.980) - 245.417 / 1.445.231 <80-100%> (-80%)
01./01. [3DS] Pokemon Sun / Moon # <RPG> (Pokemon Co.) {2016.11.18} (¥4.980) - 422.346 / 2.327.453 <80-100%> (-78%)
01./01. [3DS] Pokemon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire # <RPG> (Pokemon Co.) {2014.11.21} (¥4.937) - 320.960 / 1.855.553 <80-100%> (-79%)
01./01. [3DS] Pokemon X / Y # <RPG> (Pokemon Co.) {2013.10.12} (¥4.800) - 591.025 / 2.687.075 <80-100%> (-72%)

Sword/Shield drop is among the better ones in the last couple of years, tied with XY. Keep in mind that Sword/Shield had 650k digital sales first week, so total sales should be between Sun/Moon and XY somewhere.

400k is still a lot and there are no major releases in December to really facilitate that. It's possible with the Switch Lite but I think a more consistent holiday sales curve would be more likely.

Finally Luigi Mansion 3 has more sales than Death Stranding and it will stay like this for his lifetime as it has a better week.

Keep dropping Sword&Shield for everyone's sake.
It's the best percentage drop that the second week of a Pokémon game has had in six years (Let's Go dropped 77%, USUM dropped 80%, Sun and Moon dropped 78%, ORAS dropped 79%, and XY dropped 72%). If you're looking for a failure narrative, you're looking in the wrong place.

I am still shocked about hardware sales.

What can we expect from now on ? Growth every single week until Week 51 ?

HW sales beasting.
Switch a good 1m ahead YOY, and only 100k away from full YTD 2018.
Every sale after next week will be pure net growth YOY.

Any numbers for second week of previous Pokemon games?
Lets go went from 664k to 157k, so a 77% drop.
USUM went from 1199k to 245k, so a 80% drop.
SM went from 1905k to 422k, so a 78% drop.

90% seems unlikely.
Pokemon did better than expected.


08./20. [NSW] Super Mario Party # <ETC> (Nintendo) {2018.10.05} (¥5.980) - 8.576 / 1.154.354 (+165%)
Pretty good for shovelware tbh...

04./00. [PS4] Shenmue III <ADV> (Deep Silver) {2019.11.19} (¥6.980) - 17.857 / NEW
Once again quite the difference compared to the MC blog leak.
Basically 3 is flat compared to the rerelease of 1+2 when comparing famitsu to famitsu.

If Switch manages to keep pace with 2018 (on pace is enough, no surpassing needed), then it will sell above 4.5M for the year, which is a 3DS-like performance. If it does better than 2018 did in the remaining weeks, then it could go up to 5M, which would be even more 3DS-like (peak 3DS was 5.3M or 5.4M iirc).

At the very least, expecting 4.5M+ is not so unrealistic at this stage.
