Spider-Man takes the crown in Japan.

Much like in the UK, Spider-Man topped charts in Japan, selling 125,124 units in its launch week in the land of the rising sun, according to Media Create. It sold more than six times more than the game in second place, Konami’s Winning Eleven (known in the west as PES), which sold a little over 20,000 units.

Elsewhere, Nintendo evergreens such as Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Kirby: Star Allies, all continued to exhibit strong legs, with Super Mario Odyssey also re-entering the charts after momentarily leaving them last week.

On the hardware front, Spider-Man couldn’t buoy Sony to a win this week; the Nintendo Switch, with 43,513 units sold, was still the top selling system in Japan last week, with the PS4 selling 19,700 units, and coming in at a weak second place. The ageing 3DS rounded off the top three with just under 7,500 units sold.
