This is fantastic as it shows that Japan has a far better taste in games/hardware then the west.

Also related here are examples of 3rd party games on Switch that sold better then PS4 in the said county via Media Create sales figures at opening week.

My Hero: One’s Justice 24.626 on Switch vs 16.026 on PS4 Note: A obscure Japan only 3DS My Hero Academia: Battle for All was made before this and considering that the 3DS Japan audience moved to the Switch it not surprising.

Little Dragons Cafe 11.860 on Switch vs 5.308 on PS4 Note: created by Yasuhiro Wada of Harvest Moon aka Story of Seasons/ Bokujō Monogatari fame which has been long time Nintendo exclusive/related to Nintendo also produced Magical Pop'n for the Super Famicom in Japan so this explains the sales figures.

And the big one Mega Man 11 14.650 on Switch vs 12.052 on PS4. Mega Man is Nintendo first so no surprise.

Yes these games fall more along the middle tier/niech range not the typical AAA fare but it does show that Switch has a audience in Japan.
