Excellent top 3. Curious to see how KH3 does next month.

KH3 killin' it. Nice that Tales of Vesperia at least made it to the Switch top 10.


Rob5VGC (on 20 February 2019)

All according to Nomura's keikaku.


StriderKiwi (on 20 February 2019)

Both are terrific games. Question now is whether they'll holdover well as the flood of new releases emerge.


bamf (on 20 February 2019)

No other games sell on switch other than what you see there in the top ten. Make you wonder why third party publishers bother?


routsounmanman (on 21 February 2019)

I agree. Unless third parties start bringing their A game, they should shut up and not bother at all.

Wish it was RE2 at #1 but hey, who am I to complain. GO RE2! Fucking brilliant videogame. A gamer's GAME!

who do you figure all the other games are for?

Oh, you know,,,it's just that RE2 feels so "golden" and nostalgic. With all these games trying to become movies these days (and TLOU is one of the all-time best but it still isn't what I would say a gamer's game like RE2 to me is) it's refreshing when a game doesn't hide the fact it is a "video game." RE2 feels and looks realistic, but doesn't forget it's a game. The management system and storage box hardly feel realistic, but work well in the gameplay department. The same can be said for the "classic" puzzles. It's what I want from my games, anyway. Bravo to Capcom and hopefully RE8 goes this route.
