Nintendo Switch And 3DS Conquer The First Week Of Japan’s Sales Charts

Famitsu has just released the video game hardware and software sales charts for the first week of 2018 (January 1 to 7, 2018).

Although it’s the New Year holidays in Japan, Nintendo games have continued to sell like crazy with no sign of it ending soon. The top 9 best selling games are games published on either Nintendo Switch or Nintendo 3DS.

Splatoon 2 led the pack with 130,901 copies sold, followed by Super Mario Odyssey at 126,467, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at 98,731, and Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon at 76,528.

On the hardware side of things, no surprise, the Switch is still killing everything as 159,636 systems were sold last week, beating the PlayStation 4’s 103,607 units. The Nintendo 3DS family of systems took third place on the hardware charts, having sold 64,986 consoles.
