Nintendo Switch Lite sales are thriving in Japan due to stock shortages of regular Switch model

This little Lite of mine

With reports of the Nintendo Switch having stock issues in Japan due to Coronavirus complications, it seems Japanese customers are resorting to something...smaller. Nintendo's cheaper, portable-only console, the Switch Lite, had a strange boost in sales the week. 63,433 of the 80,312 total Switch units sold were the Lite model. This is quite unusual, as previous weeks have seen the original Switch model greatly outsell the Lite. Hopefully stock issues are resolved shortly, but it's nice that there is another option still available for some.

Thanks to JUMPMANFR for the heads-up!

Japanese hardware/software sales for Feb 10th to Feb. 16th, 2020

Miku tops the charts!

It's time to take a look at the recently released Japanese sales charts for the week of February 10th, 2020. With the debut of Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA MegaMix in Japan, the world-famous Vocaloid took the #1 sales position, selling 53,606 total physical copies. Pokemon Sword and Shield sits at a respectable second position this week, with 24,534 more copies sold. Likely due to the continued stock shortage in Japan, Ring Fit Adventure sold only 10,238 more units, and has been bumped down to 5th place on the charts. Hardware-wise, the Nintendo Switch continues to be the best selling console by a wide margin. 80,312 more Nintendo Switch units were sold this week between the Switch and Switch Lite.
