Last week, Japan saw the release of several new titles including Sonic Forces, Need for Speed Payback, Occultic;Nine, and DJMAX Respect. Japanese sales tracker Media Create released the latest software and hardware sales data from the week of November 6 through November 12, 2017.


At the #1 spot of the week we have the return of Super Mario Odyssey on top with 73,315 units sold on the Nintendo Switch. Call of Duty: WWII performed impressively the week prior and it fell short of repeating with 67,044 units sold in its second week on PS4 to chart at #2.


While it may have dropped to #5 last week due to three new releases, Splatoon 2 isn’t going anywhere as it climbed its way back up the chart to #3 this past week with 23,130 units sold on Switch.


The top new title of the week is Need for Speed Payback at #4 with 20,964 units sold on PS4, making it an increase from the debut of the 2015 Need for Speed . The next new title goes to Sonic Forces which sold an underwhelming 5,938 units on PS4 to chart at #10. It also charted at #14 for the Switch version with 4,686 units sold, for a total of 10,624 units between the two versions.


At #11 we have Occultic;Nine with 5,846 units sold on PS4. The PS Vita version charted at #15 with 4,595 units sold, for a combined total of 10,441 units.


And last but not least, DJMAX Respect made its debut at #16 with 4,376 units sold on PS4.


On the hardware sales front, the Nintendo Switch sold 79,958 units, an increase from the 64,387 sold the week prior, without any new titles other than Sonic Forces. This puts the Switch console sales at 2,164,328 units according to Media Create’s figures since its launch back in March. Aside from a little increase in 2DS LL sales and a dip in 3DS LL sales, most hardware sales remained more or less the same.
