Nintendo Switch surges in Japan

0

Monster Hunter and Zelda remain top dogs

No new major releases? No problem. The Nintendo Switch soared by nearly 30,000 sales from last week-a 57% increase. Japanese gamers appear content with its current library, as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and 1-2-Switch remain near the top trailing only Monster Hunter XX.

This is only speculation, but considering students just graduated and are currently on spring vacation, perhaps many of them used graduation money on a shiny new console. Good a time as any to sink into Breath of the Wild, as I finally have. To say it will consume time is an understatement.
