“Switch Anticipation, part 3: Top 20 Third-Party Games of the N64”


N64_front_1024x1024.jpg

“In everybody’s life there’s a point of no return. And in a very few cases, a point where you can’t go forward anymore. And when we reach that point, all we can do is quietly accept the fact. That’s how we survive.”
― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

The N64 may have been Nintendo’s first step toward irrelevance. Certainly that didn’t mean it was a terrible system. It’s remembered fondly as the console of many of our childhoods, and with good reason. It had some stellar games like Super Mario 64, the first Super Smash Bros., and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask.

But the fact of the matter is, the N64 was the first time that Nintendo dropped from their place as champions of the console wars. They’d revived the industry with the NES and fought down a dirty battle against…

Nintendo Switch Sold over 300,000 Units in Japan During its Launch Weekend


We’ve already heard the numbers of sales for the UK (around 80,000), but thanks to Famitsu, we now know the numbers for Japan as well.

According to data from Famitsu, during the same release window as the United Kingdom, (Friday through to Sunday,) a nation undergoing Brexit and not really a Nintendo crowd anyway, the Switch sold 330,637 units at launch. Granted the Wii did better with 371,900 units, but that was during the Holiday period. Not only that, the PlayStation 4 only sold 322,100 units at launch, so not only did the Switch give it a good run for its money, but it outsold it and the Wii U by a noticeable number of sales. (The Wii U sold 308,600 units during its launch weekend.)

All in all it’s a good showing and while numbers have not been shared yet for North America, according to The New York Times reporter Nick Wingfield, having personally spoken to Reggie Fils-Aimé, the Nintendo of America revealed that in just two days, the Nintendo Switch sold more units in the Americas than another other of Nintendo’s previously consoles, which includes the Wii, which is especially “notable” since the new platform released in March. Sadly no exact numbers were given, so we will have to wait a little linger for that, but it has been said that that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the best-selling standalone launch title (not a bundled game like Wii Sports,) in Nintendo’s history and has outsold Super Mario 64 for the Nintendo64.

Given as how we have yet to hear the numbers for all of Europe as well, there is a very good chance that when all the first week numbers are in (first week being the week it launched in,) that Switch sales should easily be over the 650,000 mark and on track to reach a total of 2 million sales by the 3rd of April.
