Switch Sales Rose By 29% In Japan In 2019, PS4 Sales Dropped By 29%

Switch

If you follow our regular Japanese chart updates, you’ll probably already be aware that the Nintendo Switch had a fantastic 2019 in its home country. The console was consistently on top in terms of both hardware and software, and we can now start to analyse its performance in comparison to previous years.

Rounding up Famitsu’s yearly chart information, MCV reports that the Switch and Switch Lite managed to sell an estimated 4,494,000 combined units in Japan alone last year. What’s particularly impressive here is that the Switch Lite managed to break the one million mark despite only launching in September.

Comparing this to Switch’s sales in 2018 reveals a 29% leap; interestingly, Nintendo’s biggest rival in the region, Sony, saw its year-on-year estimated sales fall by the very same 29% – or 29.5% to be more precise. The PS4 sold an estimated 773,773 units with the PS4 Pro selling 422,380 units, giving Nintendo a 75% share of all hardware sales for the year.

Similarly successful was Pokémon Sword and Shield, the biggest release of the year in Japan for both Nintendo and the entire industry. The two titles sold an estimated 2,988,134 units despite launching in November, comfortably beating the second-best performer – Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – by almost 2 million copies.

Can we expect a similarly strong 2020? Let’s hope so!
