Now that Media Create no longer makes their weekly sales available to the public, we’ll try something different with Famitsu’s own weekly sales column that offers a bit more of a “lite” look with a top-10 list of best-selling video game software in Japan. Again, since Famitsu uses its own trackers, that means they’re different from Media Create’s own numbers from our previous sales column, so we won’t be using those for sales comparisons as we’ve done in the past.


Last week in Japan, we saw the debut of the Nintendo Switch game Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission as the key release that sold 70,990 units in its debut for the #1 spot. We saw strong follow-up sales from Yoshi’s Crafted World at #2 with 28,468 units  sold and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice at #3 with 18,101 units. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate continues to sell well with 14,775 units sold to chart at #4 and Minecraft has also been sticking around at #5 with 12,278 units sol for the Nintendo Switch.


The top-10 chart of the week is as follows:
