Nintendo Switch

The newest Media Create report for video game hardware and software sales in Japan last week is now out, and it was a pretty quiet week overall last week. Nintendo Switch sales continued to rise week on week, reverting to selling over 50,000 units in the week, presumably due to excitement for the upcoming Pokemon Let’s Go and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, while PS4 continued to fall (it’s now at a bit over 16,000 units sold last week), and the 3DS stayed flat in spite of a major new release last week. This means that, much like last week, Switch topped hardware charts

Said new 3DS release was the remake of Luigi’s Mansion, which launched in Japan last week, and topped software charts. Elsewhere on the charts, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Red Dead Redemption 2, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild all continued to show strong legs week on week, as is usual.

The charts next week will be special, since that is the week Pokemon Let’s Go finally launches. How will this game, which has proven divisive so far, end up doing? We’ll have to wait to see. Meanwhile, check out the full hardware and software charts for this week below.
