Ever since its release Pokémon Legends: Arceus has been leading the charge in the Japanese charts, and that’s continued in the period of 7th February to 13th February; it’s also making ground on Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl in terms of overall sales in the country.

The top 10 is also dominated by familiar Switch hits, with Dying Light 2 on PS4 being the sole game to break up the party. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is continuing its oh-so-familiar run near the top, while Mario Party Superstars is also notably edging towards one million sales in Japan, though it’ll take a good number of weeks yet to hit that target.

The top 10 is below (first numbers are estimated sales for this week, followed by total sales):


  1. [NSW] Pokémon Legends: Arceus (The Pokemon Company, 01/28/22) – 140,149 (1,923,870)
  2. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, 04/28/17) – 15,515 (4,429,626)
  3. [NSW] Mario Party Superstars (Nintendo, 10/29/21) – 14,812 (865,507)
  4. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo, 12/07/18) – 11,134 (4,764,379)
  5. [PS4] Dying Light 2: Stay Human (Spike Chunsoft, 02/04/22) – 10,305 (34,466)
  6. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft, 06/21/18) – 9,784 (2,514,952)
  7. [NSW] Pokémon Brilliant Diamond / Shining Pearl (The Pokemon Company, 11/19/21) – 8,163 (2,502,926)
  8. [NSW] Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Nintendo, 03/20/20) – 7,779 (7,183,331)
  9. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure (Nintendo, 10/18/19) – 7,652 (3,074,777)
  10. [NSW] My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! – Pirates that Stir the Waters (Idea Factory, 02/10/22) – 6,676 (New)

The hardware sales continue previous trends with Switch leading the way, with the change that PS5 sales are down to a little over a quarter of last week’s results (very likely due to stock issues):

  1. Switch OLED Model – 66,152 (1,186,491)
  2. Switch – 34,979 (17,992,188)
  3. Switch Lite – 16,934 (4,566,776)
  4. PlayStation 5 – 5,744 (1,149,434)
  5. Xbox Series S – 3,616 (65,586)
  6. Xbox Series X – 2,339 (82,393)
  7. PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – 674 (211,210)
  8. New 2DS LL (including 2DS) – 360 (1,181,930)
  9. PlayStation 4 – 4 (7,819,314)

Another strong week for Nintendo in Japan; share your thoughts, as always, in the comments.
