NieR: Automata is number one in Japan

Super Robot Wars takes 2nd and 3rd place

The countdown for the Nintendo Switch is officially on. In the meantime, people in Japan have flocked to new titles Super Robot Wars V and NieR: Automata while they wait. On the hardware side there was a significant 16,000 unit surge by the PS4, perhaps for NieR: Automata.

Good news for Xbox One as well! It’s no longer in last place, beating out the Wii U by five sales. Just don’t tell the little guy what’s happening on March 3.
