Good to see some Nintendo titles in the top three. Hopefully this momentum keeps up with the next few months of Switch releases!

My goodness. The top 3 games are Japanese and they are 5 on the list in total. What dimension am I in?

The right one my friend.

The dimension of no big western release month.

Great top 3. What is even more impressive is that MK8D numbers are just for 2 days. The game released on April 28th and the cut-off for April NPD was the 29th.

3 JAPANESE GAMES AT THE TOP OF THE LIST! YAY! Please take the industry back, Japan.

Would be really nice if Persona 5 was on Switch. I'd buy it.

Persona 5 will likely never come to Switch, given the history of the Persona series. However, an enhanced "Persona 5 Platinum" (or whatever they may call it)? That's possible.

Yeah, Sony seems to have it locked down. I guess Shin Megami Tensei will do for now. I was never interested in that series on the DS/3DS but the Switch game might change that. Being developed in UE4 certainly has my attention.

Totally didn't expect Persona 5 to be in the TOP 3, let alone the top 10! Deservedly so I might add.
