Surprised to see Xenoverse 2 back in the top 20. Switch surpassed PS2's first year in Japan with this weeks sale. I expect around this time next year Switch will overtake the PS4.

Pokkén is at 177k, there was an error and the same number was inserted for both ARMS and Pokkén

Holy crap!

I wonder if the Switch will be able to outsell 3DS' lifetime sales in japan, which just passed PS2's sales there.


LethalP (on 27 December 2017)

It will overtake PS4 in 2018 which is actually pretty crazy. Home consoles really are dead by relative contrast.


CrazyGamer2017 (on 27 December 2017)

First these are the figures of the strongest week of the year, the week before Xmas, second this is the Switch's strongest market: Japan and third the PS4 has sold more than 70M and will likely hit 100M+ lifetime so in what universe are home consoles dead? Seriously.

Is a Mario game about to outsell a Pokemon game in Japan!?


Ryng_Tolu (on 27 December 2017)

Nothing strange there. A game like Ultra Moon / Ultra Soon of course can be outsold by the biggest Mario 3D game of all time. Next main Pokémon game, well, that's another story........

USUM is just about to reach 2 million in japan though so it'll still be some time yet I think.

SMO is not the "biggest". That would be SM64.

@AlfredoTurkey not according to sales...

If we're going on sales as being the basis for the term "biggest" than sure. If we're going on innovation, creativity and gameplay that changed the entire industry for generations, SM64 wins... easily.
