    Hardware sales figures

    This week's hardware sales

    This week we see Valkyria Chronicles 4 debut at #2 on the chart, moving 60k units. Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom also debuts this week, just behind at #3 - neither of the 2 fan-favorite IPs are able to topple Kirby Star Allies, which stays at number #1 on the chart for the second week in a row, despite dropping a whopping 62% in sales when compared to week 11.
    Detective Pikachu sleuths his way into the chart at #4, and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition for Nintendo Switch charts at #5, but struggles to reach 25k units sold.

    Hardware figures barely move across the board, but Nintendo Switch is still on top in Japan, more than doubling the weekly sales of the PS4.

    Beloved franchises like Ni No Kuni 2, Valkyria Chronicles 4, Zelda and Pokemon spinoffs all doing well...

    ...and then there's randomly just 1 2 Switch trying desperately to stay relevant.

    Switch is doing well for sales, looks like it might actually catch up or pass the PS4 (in Japan at least) but those poor Xbox numbers... I know Japan hates the Xbox series in general but damn...

    Sony is going to make a PS5 soon anyway. So it will be interesting to see what they do, maybe the PS5 will be an upgraded Switch type system...

    Yep, all seems about right. Splatoon 2's still holding a strong position, as it has been for months. The game came out last summer, so that's a mighty impressive performance. I'm surprised and happy to see it doing so well.

    Well then, Kirby was the big recent release from Team Red, bet that sold a fair amount of systems. Poor saps who bought 1-2-Switch with their new Switches.

    3DS is a ctually going decently in sales in Japan. Surprising. I guess it's really not ending as soon as i thought it would.

    Now, XB1 and PSV are simply dying in the japanese market. It's crazy. The PS Vita is understandable, but XB1... Massive rejection?

    Sit down and piss off Kirby, Valkyria Chronicles 4 should be taking the throne.
