Nintendo Switch Lifetime Japanese Sales Data Compilation

Nintendo Switch Banner

Update: (February 25th, 2018 8:28AM EST) Week 7’s full Media Create, Famitsu, and Dengeki data are up, as well as Famitsu’s January 2018 digital numbers!

This will be the complete database of all up-to-date Nintendo Switch sales data in Japan. I will update this post multiple times a week as new data comes in! I will include data from all three trackers; Media Create, Famitsu, AND Dengeki!

Each entry will now show their most recent week. This helps know how old the numbers are, and helps me do the math when any shows up weeks later to determine their amount of weeks absent.

Note: Famitsu throughout 2017 would have their week show as one later (example; Media Create would be Week 9, 2017, where as Famitsu would be Week 10, 2017). Also, Famitsu had a Week 53 in the same week that Media Create had its Week 52, after that, both started at Week 1, 2018, matching each other.

All the data will be after the jump.

PEGI rates Stick it the Man for Switch by Rising Star Games, hinting at a retail release

Stick it to the Man PEGI

PEGI just recently rated Stick it to the Man on Switch. While the game has been out for a while on the eShop, the main point of interest is that it says it’s being published by Rising Star Games, rather than Zoink Games.

A very similar thing happened when USK rated Steamworld Dig 2 for Switch as being published by Rising Star Games rather than Image & Form, and sure enough the retail release by Rising Star Games was announced a short time afterward. Also, Zoink Games’ upcoming game Flipping Death is also getting a retail release from, you guessed it, Rising Star Games.

And speaking of Stick it the Man on Switch, you can read my review of the game right here!

Do you already have the game on the eShop? Are you interested in the potential retail release? Let me know in the comments!

This is the next game by NIS on Switch following Disgaea 5 Complete and their localization of Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle. It’s an RPG with an 8-bit aesthetic that while it resembles JRPGs of old on the NES or Game Boy Color, there’s an interesting twist to the game, and that’s its story and how scenes are played out.
