Next week's numbers should give a good shot in the arm with New Gundam Breaker, the physical release of Minecraft: Switch Edition, and Mario Tennis Aces.

Hardware sales were pretty solid but software has hit a low point. Still Spatoon is doing its thing. Next week gonna be a bit more interesting

Most likely won because it's available as a bundle as well. It correlates with the hardware sales.
