Sales can always be better. This is the sort of game that works well as a gift, so sales will likely not be particularly high at any point; though there should be a substantial holiday season bump.

This makes me happy. I love games that are sickeningly charming like this one =)

It's disgustingly charming. My personal favorite level so far is the forest level with the sticks and twigs that are made to look like owls. "Weighting Acorns" it may be called.

50.000 hmmm. Nothing special. So what are these people who buys switch every week play? When you look at the numbers if its not Zelda Mario Smash Splatoon its really difficult to be succesfull on Switch. When you look at waht sells on Switch first are the Nintedo evergreens then ver very very long nothing, then at the end some indie and ports. Switch is a great heanheld but its going into the same problems as in the past: YOU buy nintedo machine for nintendo games.

Minecraft seems to be doing pretty good. And why would the fact that Nintendo games sell better than 3rd parties be a problem anyways?

The Nintendo eshop charts are often dominated by third party games (Rocket League, Minecraft, Final Fantasy and discounted games). On the other hand in retail we can see that first party games sell better.
