Kingdom Hearts 3 and Resident Evil 2 debuted in the top two positions (respectively) in last week’s Media Create charts for video game software and hardware sales in Japan. That remains unchanged this week, though both games have seen significant drops in how many units they sold (which, to be honest, is understandable, given that this is their second week on the market).

Kingdom Hearts 3 is in at first place, with slightly over 91,000 units sold, while Resident Evil 2 is following behind in second position, having sold slightly north of 51,000 copies during the week. Both games are, of course, doing well the world over- Kingdom Hearts 3 has shipped 5 million copies worldwide, while Resident Evil 2 has shipped 3 million.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe and Super Smash Bros Ultimate have also retained their positions from last week, at third and fourth positions respectively, with the former selling nearly 46,000 units, and the latter moving a little more than 35,000 copies. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, which was in fifth place last week, has dropped down to ninth place, selling over 11,000 units, while Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Eevee! move up in its place from their eighth position last week with over 21,000 units sold.

On the hardware front, for the first time in roughly a year, last week the PS4 outsold the Switch (by a couple hundred units). This week, though, things are back to normal, with the Switch retaking its lead, selling over 69,000 units. The PS4, meanwhile, sold over 25,000 units (base PS4 and PS4 Pro sales combined).
