Famitsu has released its newest weekly charts for video game software and hardware sales in Japan, and on the software front, Pokemon Sword and Shield have climbed back into pole position. The RPG duo sold nearly 25,000 units, which is over 6,000 more than what it managed last week.

Meanwhile, Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, which debuted on top of the charts last week, has seen a drop in sales. The PS4 version comes in at second place, selling over 19,000 units, while the Nintendo Switch version, which occupied second place last week, has dropped down to No. 8, selling just shy of 9,000 copies. Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection is the only new release in the top 10 this week, selling over 11,000 copies to claim the sixth spot.

On the hardware front, the Nintendo Switch, which saw a significant drop in sales last week due to stock shortages amidst the coronavirus outbreak, has seen a bit of a bump in sales, selling over 53,000 units.
