It’s been a great week for video games- Kingdom Hearts 3 and Resident Evil 2 both launched within a few days of each other, and in the latest Media Create sales report for video game software and hardware sales in Japan for the week ending January 27, the two games have topped the charts- which isn’t really much of a surprise, considering the fact that they’ve been topping the most anticipated releases charts in Japan for months now.

Kingdom Hearts 3 was on top of the charts, selling slightly over 610,000 units, while Resident Evil 2 (which debuted on top in UK last week and has shipped over 3 million copies so far) debuted in second place, with over 250,000 units sold. Both games managed to sell that much in three days, with both having launched on January 25th (a worldwide simultaneous release for Resident Evil 2, with Kingdom Hearts 3 launching in the rest of the world four days later).

Ace Combat 7, which topped the charts last week, fell down to fifth place and saw a significant drop in sales, selling a little over 25,000 units this week. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe took the third position with over 57,000 units sold, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which moved over 38,000 units, took the fourth spot.

What’s really surprising is that on the hardware front, for the first time in about a year, the PS4 managed to outsell the Switch. Nintendo’s console-handheld hybrid saw a drop of roughly 20,000 units in sales over last week, selling over 52,000 units. The PS4 sold about as much, but came out ahead of the Switch by a couple hundred units (base model and PS4 Pro sales combined).
