Switch Hardware in the two countries has surpassed 1 million units in for the year which makes the two markets comparable to France's Total in 2019 for Nintendo.
Overall there are pretty big differences in the two markets both in terms of software and console splits. In South Korea the trend is very similar to Japan last year. While in Taiwan PS4/PS5 software has been able to have a better hold while Switch software hasn't seen a exponential growth compared to 2019.

Ring Fit & New Horizon were the Top selling games in both nations.

Taiwan Software in 2019 was Switch 51.33% while the PS4 47.93% of the market, in 2020 Switch is at 59% while PS4/PS5 is at 40%
Taiwan Hardware in 2019 was Switch 70% while the PS4 29% of the market, in 2020 Switch is at 87% while the PS4/PS5 is at 13%

South Korea Software in 2019 was Switch 63% while the PS4 was 34% of the market, in 2020 Switch is at 81% while the PS4/PS5 is at 18%
South Korea Hardware in 2019 was Switch 69% while the PS4 was 27% of the market, in 2020 Switch is at 90% while the PS4/PS5 was 9%


This year the only PS4/PS5 games to chart in Taiwan are:
The Nioh Collection / #3, Demon's Souls / #4, Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War / #5 (Week 11), NieR Replicant / #1 (Week 16),

This year the only PS4/PS5 games to chart in South Korea are:
NieR Replicant / #4 (Week 16)

So overall there was a big restock of PS5 in Taiwan at the time Nioh Collection launched and Nier Replicant managed to chart in both countries. I expect Resident Evil: Village to also chart but we can see that the presence of PS games in the chart has further declined compared to last year, when especially in Taiwan you had Final Fantasy VII Remake & Resident Evil 3, Nioh 2, Persona 5 Royal, Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, Yakuza: Like a Dragon claiming the #1 spot in the country during the week of their releases. While in South Korea you had at least a bunch of games charting in the Top 5.


Meanwhile here is the trend in Japan in terms of Software 2019 Switch 62%, PS4 34%, Japan 2020 Switch 75%, PS4/PS5 24%
This year we are heading towards over 90% of all physical software sold on the Switch, I anticipate the end result it might be closer to 95% unless some major PS4/PS5 game gets slatted for the fall.
Very interesting how Sony first party games are noticeably more popular in Taiwan than they are in Japan and South Korea. Another example of how different countries can be, even in the same region.
