New World of Switch stats microsite

This weekend, I’ve been busy with a new microsite to dig a little deeper into the eShop charts that I post on World of Switch every Saturday.

Check it out – World of Switch stats

At first glance, it’s little more than what is already on offer here on the World of Switch blog. There’s a list of the charts for each day I’ve been recording them, and lists of released and upcoming games for the Nintendo Switch.

But dig a little deeper, and you’ll see that every game title links to a page containing some basic info about it, along with a history of the game’s position in the eShop charts.

This should save me a bit of time too, as I can enter the Top 15 for a given day and the up/down movement stuff will be generated automatically.

Here are a few examples:

There are only eight snapshots of the charts so far, but the stats site will become a bit more interesting as time goes by.

Have you got any ideas for how the stats site could be improved? Tweet @worldofswitch with your feedback.

Seiken Densetsu Collection is coming out for the Nintendo Switch… but only in Japan

We’ve just learned that Seiken Densetsu Collection is coming out for the Nintendo Switch… but only in Japan.

The collection will include Final Fantasy Adventure, Secret of Mana, and Seiken Densetsu 3 (previously unreleased outside Japan).

We would so love to see this collection released in Europe. Perhaps if we ask Square Enix nicely, they’ll consider this?
