Smash Dominates Japan and Massively Boosts Switch Sales

0

The weekly hardware and software sales from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was an absolutely dominant week for Nintendo. Unsurprisingly, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate sits at number one with a franchise record 1,220,535 sales on opening weekend, which is the best debut for any non-Pokemon Nintendo game in Japan. That was just the beginning of Nintendo’s impressive week, as the top six best-sellers are all Switch games. This includes Pokemon: Let’s Go, which broke the 1 million mark in Japan this week.

Smash also provided a massive boost for Switch hardware sales, and the console climbed from an already impressive 120,546 units sold last week to 281,222 this week. That was easily enough for first place, as PlayStation 4 managed just under 75,000 between its standard and Pro models. You can check out the full sales breakdown below.
