The latest Japanese Charts are in courtesy of Famitsu and it’s predictably another strong turnout for the Nintendo Switch.

Coming in at number one, Nintendo Switch Sports managed to sell an impressive 53,900 units, bringing its total so far to 677,393. Meanwhile, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 hold strong at the number two slot, though its sales have taken a pretty hefty dive from the previous week, shifting 39,529 units down from 112,728. It’s still a strong number, no question, but it’s clear that a game like Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has a very dedicated fanbase, many of whom are likely to have picked it up within the first week.

Otherwise, it’s more or less business as usual. Live A Live is still performing relatively well, with 20,999 units shifted in the week, while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe rises a few spots to come in at number three, no doubt bolstered by the recent launch of fresh courses courtesy of the Booster Course Pass Wave 2 release.
