Famitsu has released last week’s data for video game software and hardware sales in Japan. On the software front, there were a couple of major new releases, and the top 2 positions have been taken by games making their debuts in the charts. In first place is Marvelous’ life sim Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, which sold over 202,000 units on its debut.

Meanwhile, Square Enix’s Switch exclusive Bravely Default 2 comes in at second place, selling over 93,000 units within the first three days of it launch. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Furywhich has been a strong performer in the charts ever since it launched a few weeks back, is in third place, with sales of over 74,000 units.
