Nintendo once again dominated the software sales charts for Japan. Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! Let’s Go, Eevee! once again had the top spot with 94,753 units sold. Nintendo brought home four out of five spots in the top five with newcomer Persona Q2: New Shadow Labyrinth coming in at the number two spot on its first week on the charts with 79,747 units sold.

If recent sales trends continue, which the most certainly will, next week Nintendo will have another million sellers for the Switch with the two Pokemon games. Super Mario Party for the Switch is steadily cruising towards being a million seller. Also, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is closing in on selling 2 million in Japan, as is Super Mario Odyssey.
