Japan: Latest Famitsu video game charts

Interestingly, the team at Famitsu has published estimated sales for the week of 30th December, 2019 to 5th January, 2020. Normally the charts are published on a Wednesday afternoon UK time. You’ll notice that this chart doesn’t include hardware sales, but on the software side of things, Nintendo is clearly dominating. Just look at the top twenty as it is comprised entirely of Nintendo Switch titles!
