The biggest dated releases in Japan for the rest of the year are Nocturne HD, the new Momotetsu, and Cyberpunk 2077. Expect Animal Crossing to be on top for a long time.

For what its worth, the reason this is happening is because the PS4 is having stock issues, not because demand of the system is nearly non existent. With the PlayStation 5 only getting closer is unlikely stock issues will be resolved in a meaningful way.

Hardware sales in Japan haven't been this onesided since the Super Famicom years, neither the PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS or 3DS ever outsold their competition close to 100:1, even at their peaks.

Hardware sales Total sales of Nintendo Switch for 2020 in Japan now above 3 million units as total sales of the original Nintendo Switch top 12 million units. Worst ever week for the PS4 Pro as the base PS4 sees its lowest week since the launch of the slim model.

After overperforming on launch week Ghost of Tsushima will do it too on its second week. It'll be closer to Paper Mario, maybe above Due to stock issues at launch the next couple of weeks should be good Most likely that Animal Crossing will be the best selling game regardless

Took a couple of tries but managed to beat this Cinder guy. I played Sekiro before but Dark Souls III was my first proper souls game. I am now a believer.

Ghost of Tsushima may have had the 2nd biggest launch for PS4 game in Japan this year, or at least its close to it. Definetly below Final Fantasy VII Remake, but above Yakuza 7. Should be around the level of Resident Evil 3, but we can't say for certain.

First week retail shipment of Ghost of Tsushima in Japan was up to 265.000 units. The game had a high sellthrough as many stores sold out. Launch week retail shipment of Paper Mario: The Origami king was between 180.000 and 270.000 units.

By the time this comes out the gap between New Genesis and the original release of PSO2 will be around the same as the one between PSO and PSO2. Might as well just call it Phantasy Star Online 3 at this point.

It would have been interesting too see what a proper Paper Mario RPG would've done on a platform with a healthy RPG player base, something that the Nintendo 64 and GameCube were most certainly not. The first 2 PM games were the best selling RPGs on their respective systems.

On average Paper Mario games sell around 400k, so expect good legs for The Origami King. Not like there's much else on Switch for the time being. 😏

Launch week sales of Paper Mario: The Origami King are close to the series' average in Japan, yet are the 2nd lowest of the series. Digital are likely to put the launch alongside the levels ot TTYD and Sticker Star.

Its the biggest new IP launch in Japan in nearly 10 years, as not since the original Dark Souls had a brand new game sold this much.

It's Sony's biggest launch on PS4 (not counting COD or Knack) outdoing both Death Stranding and The Last of Us Part II, as well as the biggest launch for a Sony title since Gran Turismo 5 in 2010.

Ghost of Tsushima is the biggest new IP launch this generation in Japan, outdoing Death Stranding. Sony has pushed many new IPs on PS4, it has worked very well for them.
