The latest Japanese boxed-software charts have come through thanks to the video games sales tracking team at Famitsu for the week of 10th January, 2022 to 16th January, 2022. The Nintendo Switch family of systems remains the platform of choice in Japan shifting an additional 94,523 units and the entertaining Mario Party Superstars is once again the top boxed video game. The next entry in the Pokemon series, Pokemon Legends: Arceus, is set to be released Friday, 28th January, so it will be interesting to see Switch hardware and software numbers then. For now, here’s the best-selling boxed software in the land of the rising sun:

  1. DLC pleaaaaaase.
    Superstars is already the best Mario Party we’ve had in years, DLC that adds more boards and characters could potentially make it the best in the series.
