Famitsu, a comprehensive game information media, conducted a survey on the “Nintendo Switch” gaming console released by Nintendo on March 3, 2017, and announced the results. This time, we will present the estimated cumulative sales ranking for Nintendo Switch software in Japan.
Second place: Super Smash Bros. SPECIAL
Second place is “Super Smash Bros. Smash Bros. SPECIAL”. Since its release on December 7, 2018, it has become a very popular game software that has sold around 4.9 million units. This is a competitive action game where not only Nintendo series like “Super Mario” and “The Legend of Zelda” but also famous characters from various series like “Persona”, “Metal Gear” and “Dragon Quest” come together. The first working as game software for the NINTENDO 64 was released in 1999, and it has been updated while compatible game hardware has changed since then.
Although it is a simple game, the biggest attraction is that the worlds of each game series intersect. With the introduction of the Nintendo All-Star, a setting that many generations can enjoy, from kids to adults, is ideal for a Nintendo Switch that even families can enjoy.
1st place: Animal Crossing: New Year’s Forest
First place is “Animal Crossing: New Year’s Forest”. Almost two years after its launch on March 20, 2020, it has sold 7.26 million units, causing a huge boom that can be called a social phenomenon. An exciting game that takes place on an uninhabited island where players live as residents of the island.
