The bestselling game of the week was none other than Square Enix’s Octopath Traveler for Nintendo Switch, debuting at 110,111 copies sold. The game is currently in short supply so it’ll be interesting to see how things turn out.
Next up is Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, released for Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS last Friday. The Switch and 3DS versions are at 2nd and 6th places respectively, having moved 41,852 copies and 14,558 copies. Again, as the Switch version is in short supply, we may be seeing interesting stats in the next few weeks.
