Japan: Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr.’s Journey Enters At 17

The latest Media Create software and hardware sales charts are now in from Japan. It has been yet another good week for the Nintendo Switch and Super Smash Bros Ultimate which are number one in the hardware charts and software charts respectively. While sales for the Nintendo Switch have dropped this week, it is still ahead of Sony’s PlayStation 4, which has seen a sales increase this week. Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr.’s Journey hasn’t quite performed as Nintendo would have expected as it arrived at number seventeen. Here’s the best-selling video games and platforms in Japan:

    1. I don’t as I’ve come to hate Mario & Luigi. It’s because of it that Paper Mario has had shitty games in the last 10 years because Nintendo are retarded & think you can’t have TWO successful games of the same genre. It’s why F-Zero hasn’t gotten a new game in years, too, because apparently Mario Kart is successful enough.

      1. Actually, if you read one of the Iwata Ask questions, you will see that the true culprit is Shigeru Miyamoto. Hopefully now that he is more involved in the Mario movie and the theme parks, we could get a proper Paper Mario game since Shuntaro Furukawa said that he will “said what needs to be said to run the company”.
