    DAMN. 1,220,535 sold? In JUST Japan? Two days after launch? Fuck me, that's impressive. Good job Sakurai and everyone else who worked on Ultimate, they deserve it.
    Seems like this week was finally enough to push lifetime Switch sales in Japan over the Vita. Switch has had such a good past year and half, so excited to see where it goes in the future. So happy with my purchase.

    Huh. I was a little surprised by the total sales until I realized these are Japan only sales. I was like, there's no way Splatoon 2 has sold almost as much as BOTW and Super Mario Odyssey combined... I barely ever hear anyone mention Splatoon 2!

    Smash Bros. not surprising and well deserved. It's a console-shifter for sure.

    Finally, after all these weeks, the Switch overtook the Vita. RIP Vita.

    Splatoon 2's refusal to leave a top 10 spot is really impressive for a game that came out more than 1 and a half years ago
