With Media Create no longer disclosing data for sales figures of video game software and hardware in Japan, we now turn to Famitsu’s weekly figures for the same. As per their numbers, Yoshi’s Crafted World has topped Japanese software sales charts in its debut week for the week ending March 31st, just as it did in the UK. It sold over 50,000 copies.

Meanwhile, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twicewhich was on top of the charts last week, dropped down to second place, selling over 44,000 units. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe are still performing strongly, as they have been doing for several weeks running since their releases, charting at third and fourth positions respectively, with sales of over 19,000 copies and over 15,000 copies.

Minecraft is in at #5 with over 13,000 units sold, while Winning Post 9 debuts in sixth place with 12,000 copies sold. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Pokemon Let’s Go, and Splatoon 2 are yet more Switch exclusives that continue to perform strongly, while Super Robot Wars T, which also had a strong debut last week, comes in at eighth place with nearly 10,000 copies sold.

Meanwhile, on the hardware front, sales have slightly dipped. The Switch sits at nearly 50,000 units sold, as opposed to last week’s 56,000, while the PS4 has collectively moved nearly 24,000 units, falling from last week’s 35,000 units sold.
