Super Mario Party

After ceding the top spot on the software charts to PS4 games for the last few weeks, the Switch has reclaimed the mantle of the bestselling game in Japan in the newest Media Create report for the best selling video game hardware and software in Japan. Super Mario Party, the newest entry in the long running party game series, topped the software charts with almost 143,000 units sold in its debut week.

Elsewhere, Mega Man 11 sold well as well, with the Switch version outselling the PS4 version (although the difference was minimal), while Astro Bot sadly had a poor showing. Spider-Man, the top selling game in Japan last month, is now out of the sales charts. Showing good legs, however, are Switch games including Splatoon 2, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Super Mario Odyssey.

On the hardware side of things, the Switch topped charts with a little over 40,000 units sold, the PS4 came in second with under 15,000 units sold, and the sun setting 3DS rounded out the top three.
