The Famitsu Japanese charts for the first full week of April are in, and, well, it’s a pretty similar story to last week.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land continues to crush the competition. While sales numbers have almost halved compared to last week, Kirby still sold nearly four times more than the next best-selling game, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

No new releases have cracked into this week’s top ten either, and Elden Ring is still the only non-Nintendo game up there.

Here are the full figures for the week of 4th April to 10th April:


  1. [NSW] Kirby and the Forgotten Land (Nintendo, 03/25/22) – 59,960 (550,966)
  2. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, 04/28/17) – 16,312 (4,554,586)
  3. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft, 06/21/18) – 9,580 (2,595,462)
  4. [NSW] Pokemon Legends: Arceus (The Pokemon Company, 01/28/22) – 8,548 (2,216,676)
  5. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo, 12/07/18) – 8,064 (4,840,518)
  6. [PS4] Elden Ring (FromSoftware, 02/25/22) – 6,190 (323,804)
  7. [NSW] Mario Party Superstars (Nintendo, 10/29/21) – 5,534 (933,351)
  8. [NSW] The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo, 03/03/17) – 5,114 (1,998,774)
  9. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure (Nintendo, 10/18/19) – 5,040 (3,117,477)
  10. [NSW] Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Nintendo, 03/20/20) – 4,556 (7,230,055)

Looking at hardware sales, it feels like the Japanese market has used its copy ability here too. The Switch OLED is still the champion, but the PlayStation 5 and Switch have swapped places, with the hybrid console back in a secure second place. It looks like the Switch is going to hit 20 million sales sometime this year, easily.

  1. Switch OLED Model – 34,892 (1,559,443)
  2. Switch – 16,787 (18,176,464)
  3. PlayStation 5 – 10,573 (1,310,651)
  4. Switch Lite – 9,483 (4,669,530)
  5. Xbox Series S – 3,917 (80,504)
  6. PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – 651 (228,756)
  7. New 2DS LL (including 2DS) – 194 (1,184,843)
  8. Xbox Series X – 151 (92,263)
  9. PlayStation 4 – 14 (7,819,418)
