Nintendo Switch and Super Mario Maker 2 Dominate in Japan in June

Nintendo Switch: 21 Games Not yet Announced Appear in the Gamestop Lists

In June, the Japanese market has rewarded Nintendo both from the hardware point of view and for software sales, as evidenced by the latest data released by Media Create.

Specifically, Nintendo ranks first in the publisher ranking with 465,000 copies sold, followed by Level-5 (196,000 copies) and Bandai Namco (133,000 pieces). On the hardware front, Switch places 189,000 units, PS4 102,000 units while the consoles of the 3DS / 2DS family stop at an altitude of 12,000, a clear sign of how the commercial appeal of the platform is now reduced.
