April 18, 2018 0 By Raymond

Another week has passed in Japan and to no one’s surprise, the Switch has yet again kept the top spot with sales exceeding 36k for the week. The PlayStation 4 family of consoles nearly reached 11k in sales, with supply constraints holding them back. The 3DS family of handheld consoles sold over 8500 for the week.

On the software side, the Switch took the top spot with the launch of The Snack World: Trejarers Gold, clocking 35,655 copies in its initial week of release. The Switch took the top 3 spots on the list with Kirby: Stars Allies and Splatoon 2 following up in second and third place respectively. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is creeping closer to a million sold with 954,532 sold lifetime to date.
