Japan sales tracker Media Create has released their latest round of sales data taken from March 26 to April 1, 2018.
It has been a quiet week for Nintendo software sales, as the top 3 games of the week were new releases for PS4.

Despite the lack of major Switch releases last week, 44,033 Nintendo Switch consoles moved in Japan last week, constituting 52.6% of all video game hardware sales. The PS4, following behind at 2nd place, doesn’t even come close – it sold 17,457 units. Nintendo 3DS family of systems sales continue to decline, pushing out 9463 systems.
