Console game market sales revenue in Japan 2009-2017

In 2017, the sales revenue of the Japanese console video game industry amounted to approximately 387 billion Japanese yen, up from about 315 billion Japanese yen in the previous year. According to the source, one major reason for the previous decline of the Japanese console market could be the high popularity of mobile game apps in Japan. The rebound in 2017 was mainly caused by the success of the Nintendo Switch, which was released in March of that year.
