The latest Media Create charts for video game software and hardware sales in Japan are in, and in the week ending January 13, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has finally been dethroned, moving down from the perch that it has occupied since its launch right up until last week. Taking its place is New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe (which debuted strongly in the UK as well), selling over 166,000 units in the space of just two days, making for a very impressive debut. Meanwhile, Smash Ultimate is still going strong in second place, with sales of over 62,000 units.

Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition also had an impressive debut, collectively selling over 68,000 units in two days. The PS4 version is ranked third, with over 41,000 units sold, while the Switch version, with sales of over 26,000 units, follows close behind in fourth place. There are no other new entrants in the charts. Dragon Quest Builders 2 also occupies two places in the top 10, with the Switch version (almost 20,000 units sold) and the PS4 version (almost 18,000 units sold) charting at number 5 and 7 respectively, with Super Mario Party filling in the gap between them in sixth place with just over 19,000 units sold.

On the hardware front, the Switch finally saw its sales slowing down in terms of momentum. Though it’s still on top of the hardware charts, this week it sold just north of 78,000 units, as compared to the nearly 200,000 units it moved last week. The PS4 also saw a significant drop, going from almost 110,000 units sold last week to just over 18,000 this week (base model and PS4 Pro sales combined).
