We’ve got the latest Japanese charts (thanks, Gematsu) and there are a few minor changes of note. First up, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles retains the top spot this week with 20,964 units sold, but Nintendo Switch Sports and Mario Strikers: Battle League have swapped positions, slightly altering the top three. Mario Strikers’ sales fell off considerably from the previous week, marking a 147% drop in total sales.

Meanwhile, in a rather curious turn of events, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl have re-entered the top ten charts with 5,043 units sold, bringing the total sales since the games’ launch to a respectable 2,560,536 units.

Otherwise, it’s more or less business as usual. It’s cool to see the Nintendo Switch make up the entirety of the top ten chart once again, proving the system’s considerable popularity in its native Japan.

Here’s a look at this week’s charts in full:

  1. [NSW] Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles (Aniplex, 06/09/22) – 20,964 (111,849)
  2. [NSW] Nintendo Switch Sports (Nintendo, 04/29/22) – 18,789 (493,046)
  3. [NSW] Mario Strikers: Battle League (Nintendo, 06/10/22) – 13,002 (45,175)
  4. [NSW] Kirby and the Forgotten Land (Nintendo, 03/25/22) – 8,649
  5. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, 04/28/17) – 8,456 (4,682,390)
  6. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft, 06/21/18) – 6,887 (2,677,377)
  7. [NSW] Overlord: Escape from Nazarick (Kadokawa, 06/16/22) – 5,682 (New)
  8. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure (Nintendo, 10/18/19) – 5,462 (3,181,291)
  9. [NSW] Pokemon Brilliant Diamond / Shining Pearl (The Pokemon Company, 11/19/21) – 5,043 (2,560,536)
  10. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo, 12/07/18) – 4,364 (4,905,190)

With the hardware sales, the biggest shift this week belongs to the PlayStation 5, which dropped several spots to land at number six (with the Digital Edition just behind at number seven). It seems safe to assume that stock for the week must have been short, as sales have fallen off by nearly 10,000 since the previous week. The Switch remains the top dog, with the OLED model in particular shifting some impressive numbers. As we’d mentioned previously, of course, the Switch has now sold in excess of 25 million units in Japan.

Shout out to the New 2DS LL, too – still hanging in there!

  1. Switch OLED Model – 22,860 (1,899,156)
  2. Switch – 19,907 (18,399,758)
  3. Switch Lite – 7,638 (4,761,895)
  4. Xbox Series S – 3,423 (130,076)
  5. Xbox Series X – 3,272 (108,983)
  6. PlayStation 5 – 2,371 (1,451,795)
  7. PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – 664 (242,208)
  8. New 2DS LL (including 2DS) – 215 (1,187,058)
  9. PlayStation 4 – 18 (7,819,701)
