Attack on Titan is one of the most popular anime series’ of all time. It’s no wonder that the follow-up to the original game would meet certain success. It finished both third and fourth place in the Japanese software sales charts ending on March 18, with the PlayStation 4 version selling 28,480 units and the Nintendo Switch version moving 22,941 units. This is impressive, considering the PlayStation 4 has a much larger install base than the Nintendo Switch. Alternatively, the Nintendo Switch took six of the top 10 spots on the list and eight of the top 20, which is impressive, to say the least. Nintendo took the top two spots with Kirby Star Allies and Splatoon 2, which says wonders about the Switch’s popularity in Japan.

Speaking of the Nintendo Switch’s popularity in Japan, the Switch also managed to take the top spot in hardware sales, decimating their opposition by selling just over 54,000 units. By comparison, the PlayStation 4 sold an abysmal 14,349, with the PlayStation Pro selling just over 8,000 units. The Switch is by no means close to overtaking Sony’s wildly successful console, especially considering the Switch has only been out a year, but if Nintendo keeps up the pace, they very well may in the future. We’ll just have to watch and see.
