Not just Switch in general, but those evergreens. No wonder Nintendo still advertises them to this day.

And this is why Nintendo doesnt easily drop the price of their games like other companies.

'Age of Calamity' is a surprise for me.

It seems to me that the US was its strongest market. It also had a pretty good NPD debut at number 6 in a Holiday month, and that's retail only.

Age of Calamity sold 3 million in 4 days. It was already the best-selling Warriors game ever, and I'll bet it's Koei Tecmo's best-selling game of all time.

Ring Fit Adventure is a surprise. It's most likely the most successful fitness game that doesn't have "Wii" anywhere in its title ever.

I would imagine Switch has a higher percentage of physical game sales than Xbox and Playstation. Also, most people who own a Switch get the first party games.
