It’s that time, once again, for the Famitsu Japanese charts; this time they cover the week of 28th March to 3rd April.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land holds strong at the top spot for the week and despite seeing a fairly significant drop in sales from the previous week, it is still leagues ahead of the competition with 110,946 sales.

The rest of the top ten looks fairly self-explanatory, but there are a total of nine Switch titles here, with only Elden Ring for PS4 making any kind of dent in Nintendo’s dominance.

  1. [NSW] Kirby and the Forgotten Land (Nintendo, 03/25/22) – 110,946 (491,006)
  2. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, 04/28/17) – 19,801 (4,538,274)
  3. [NSW] Pokemon Legends: Arceus (The Pokemon Company, 01/28/22) – 12,728 (2,208,128)
  4. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft, 06/21/18) – 11,158 (2,585,882)

  10. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure (Nintendo, 10/18/19) – 5,101 (3,112,437)

The hardware chart holds no surprises for us this week, with the Switch OLED out in front and the PS5 nipping at its heels. Total sales for the OLED Model have now passed 1.5 million, and total Switch sales – including the standard model and the Lite – are close to hitting the 25 million mark.

  2. PlayStation 5 – 28,328 (1,300,078)
