There are a lot of virus in many games.

sonic the hedgehog sales are falling like tetris blocks

Glad to hear Nintendo is doing well, but I'm still waiting for a resurgent Japan which will lift the entire country as a whole. One individual company doing good won't move our economy which has been stuck around 5 Trillion for the past 30 years of stagnation.

Not all businesses are suffering during this pandemic, and it's good to see good news too!

Good to know there is a profit. Its not always a given with consoles.

A whole new reason to become hikikomori (social recluse)

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is extremely good.

agree, although I think a lot less businesses would suffer if they actually decided to think outside the box and do things differently.

No surprise. The positive stories of those "virus-proof" industries are unknown or under-reported.

We better take with a grain of salt the doomsday claim that the whole Japanese economy would be dead unless "contact businesses" are saved (with GoTo, namely). There always arise someone or groups who are adaptive well to and successful in the emerging realty. The crisis in Japanese means both danger and opportunity.

Japanese companies are doing very well in the world. All profits are not simply transferred to Japan. 53 of the top 500 companies in the world are from Japan.
