Good to see the new IP Fantasy Life hanging in there at number 3 and selling decently. Bring more titles like that to the West, Nintendo, it's not as if you even need to go through all the risks and costs of a physical release any more.

Their latest direct showed a much stronger focus on digital. Zelda oot at 30 digital is a steal.
