Japan: Minecraft Nintendo Switch Edition Is This Week’s Number One Video Game

The weekly Japanese sales charts are now in courtesy of Media Create. It has been another good week for Nintendo as the entire top ten is filled with games for Nintendo’s current platforms. It is Minecraft Nintendo Switch Edition which has topped the charts dethroning everything else, and, once again, it is the Nintendo Switch which is the best-selling system by some margin. Hardware sales in Japan might not be what they used to be, but it’s encouraging to see Nintendo continue to be on top.
