Jul 19th, 2017

We’ve been tracking sales of the Nintendo Switch in Japan week-to-week, seeing how well the console is performing as Nintendo struggles to keep up with demand. Things have been so crazy in the region that we’ve even seen popular retailers setting up a lottery to determine who gets a chance to buy a Nintendo Switch.

If you live in the US there’s rumored to be more stock coming to retail stores like GameStop, Best Buy, Target, and even Amazon on July 21st to coincide with the release of Splatoon 2. We expect we’ll see the Switch back on top in Japan when it debuts, since Japan loves the Squid Kids.
