I've been looking forward to updated numbers on Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX for a while now! 1.89 million units isn't too bad, especially considering that outsells both Gates to Infinity and Super Mystery Dungeon. I really hope we get a new title soon, especially with Gen 9 right around the corner.

I'm happy that Fates sold well and the same for awakening and Rhythm heaven megamix and Starfox.

That gives hope that Nintendo could do something more with those IPs.

Pretty cool. That’s a tone of first party games.
