The Nintendo Switch released last Friday and has accomplished  great things so far. The system and has sold well in all markets for Nintendo and Zelda has broken sales records.  And now it seems, the other launch games are also doing well. We have some sales data for Super Bomberman R and things look good for the series.

Super Bomberman R sold 39.609 copies in Japan according to the Media Creates charts, making this the highest opening week for the series in nearly 20 years. This is big considering how the series had been put on hold for a while.
