Kirby and the Forgotten Land

In Famitsu’s weekly charts for software and hardware sales in Japan last weekKirby and the Forgotten Land enjoyed an impressive debut, selling over 380,000 units in its first three days. The publication has now released the new weekly charts as well, and the 3D platformer has held on top the top spot with solid second-week sales, with over 110,000 units sold during the week.

Unsurprisingly, much of the top 10 is dominated by Nintendo Switch titles, with the exception of the PS4 version of Elden Ring, which sits in fifth place with over 10,000 units sold during the week. Interestingly, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is almost at 2 million lifetime sales in Japan, at 1,993,660 units sold to date.

On the hardware front, the Nintendo Switch is still the highest selling platform of the week, with all of its models collectively moving over 67,000 units, which is a bit of a drop from last week’s sales. The PS5, meanwhile, holds stead (more or less) with over 30,000 units sold.
