Japan: Nintendo Switch family sells 72K this week and top ten are Switch games

The latest video game software and hardware charts have come through via Japanese sales tracker Famitsu and Nintendo is clearly the undisputed champion in the land of the rising sun. The Switch family of consoles sold a decent 72,610 units and the entire top ten software charts is dominated by video games for the Nintendo Switch platform. It seems as though more stock came through for Sony’s lucrative PlayStation 5 console, as the company sold 37,851 units this week. Here’s this week’s best-sellers:

  1. The Nintendo switch has the superior waifus. Too many censored games on play station recently. I sold my ps4 in 2018 to buy a switch.

      1. Most of them are smaller titles. The biggest one was Devil May Cry 5, which Sony back tracked on after all the backlash.

    1. What a dumb thing to do,so you sold a console with better games and better graphics and features for a consoles that’s barely more powerful then a Wii U lol what an idiot

  2. Nintendo first order ex commander Quadraxis

    ||Long ago I resigned from my role within the first order as the first order commander, when I was at the helm the first order always failed and now that I am not longer there they are doing well…||

    ||I staged most of my victories, farewell first order…||

    1. shut up, commander quadraxis is the Zapp Brannigan of Nintendo, incompetent and all of his victories were fake.

  3. The Bravely Default II game is sliding back lower and lower. It’s a fantastic game. It is a true RPG. And let me tell you this game is so strategic, I have to play it only on weekends on week days I dont have time. This cartridge haven’t been removed from my Switch since I got it. I’m very satisfied with Bravely Default II. I really am. I hope Square Enix keeps this going.
