So much Switch presence in Japan. Almost a clean sweep. I'm not sure of the worldwide Mario Maker sales, but it seems like when I play the game I see a fairly high percentage of Japanese levels. But 500k is probably less than a quarter of it's worldwide sales at this point, right? Maybe Japanese players publish more levels on average (not to mention that I'm sure many people in Japan still use English level names)?

As of June 30, shipped+digital was Japan-0.52m, Overseas-1.90m so Japan was only just a bit over 20% of global totals.

Nearly every game apart from Fire Emblem got a nice boost this week. Is this to do with the new $30/€30/Ą3000 eShop voucher promo?
