It is Wednesday which means it is time to see how video game software and hardware performed in Japan. It had admittedly been a slow week with only two new releases which were LEGO Worlds for the PlayStation 4 and Kawaii Pet to Kurasou! Wan Nyan & Mini Mini Animal for Nintendo 3DS. With regards to hardware it was the Nintendo Switch which was once again the best-seller, easily beating the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 4. Here’s the best-selling software and hardware this week in Japan.

  1. Well, we are still far from Mario Kart, next week should be even less exciting for the Nintendo Switch in Japan. Then an earthquake will eventually come. Not like Monster Hunter XX, definitely. Not even half.

      Another Musou game with crossovers!? *faints* My poor wallet. I don’t think it can take much more punishment from the PS4 side of things.
