Owing to the Holidays break, we’ve received charts for software and hardware sales in Japan for the last two weeks collectively. Yesterday, we reported about the charts for the week ending December 30, and Media Create has now published the charts for the week ending January 6. Unsurprisingly, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and the Nintendo Switch topped the software and hardware charts respectively, as they did last week (and have been doing for a considerable period of time now, for that matter).

Sales for both were up from last week, with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate selling nearly 259,000 units, and the Switch itself also missing the 200,000 units mark by just over a dozen units. Meanwhile, the rest of the top 5 in the software charts was also dominated by Nintendo games, with Super Mario Party coming in at second place with just over 95,000 units sold, Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Eevee! placed third with sales of 68,000 units, and the evergreen Mario Kart 8 Deluxe selling nearly 56,000 units in the fourth spot.

The Switch version of Dragon Quest Builders 2 came in at number 5 with 47,000 units sold, while the PS4 version of the game also did pretty well, selling almost 39,000 units for an eighth place finish. There were no new entrants in the top 20 this week, but that’s obviously bound to change, with a number of high profile releases primed for the remainder of the month.

Meanwhile, while the Switch topped the hardware charts, as previously mentioned, the PS4 also saw impressive sales, boosted from 75,000 last week to a total of roughly 107,000 units sold (base and Pro models combined) this week.
