Switch sold more in March than Wii during holidays... Switch already outsold Wii's lifetime sales. Does this mean that this is the last Switch vs. Wii in Japan comparison chart?

Is there a DS VS Switch comparation in Japan? I think we should do that. Switch is looking like a +30 million system in Japan, i don't think it will beat it but it will be close.
