Getting comfy? Our weekly Japanese charts update certainly is. For the second week in a row, it’s an all-Switch Top Ten with Nintendo Switch Sports still comfortably at the top of the charts during the week of 23rd May – 29th May.

It’s going to be a sticker, this one, and Switch Sports now surpassed the 400,000 sales mark, selling another 32,321 units. Kirby and the Forgotten Land has managed to leapfrog back into second place with a further 12,720 sales.

There’s only one new entry into the top ten this week with Idea Factory’s otome Radiant Tale, which debuts in fourth with a pretty respectable 7,311 sales.

Here’s the list in full:

  1. [NSW] Nintendo Switch Sports (Nintendo, 04/29/22) – 32,321 (419,522)
  2. [NSW] Kirby and the Forgotten Land (Nintendo, 03/25/22) – 12,720 (736,287)
  3. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, 04/28/17) – 9,938 (4,652,766)
  4. [NSW] Radiant Tale (Idea Factory, 05/26/22) – 7,311 (New)
  5. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft, 06/21/18) – 7,262 (2,655,548)
  6. [NSW] eBASEBALL Powerful Pro Baseball 2022 (Konami, 04/21/22) – 5,693 (177,208)
  7. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure (Nintendo, 10/18/19) – 5,217 (3,162,189)
  8. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo, 12/07/18) – 5,052 (4,889,720)

  10. [NSW] Mario Party Superstars (Nintendo, 10/29/21) – 3,434 (971,212)

The hardware sales paint a very familiar picture, too. The Switch OLED and original models retain the top two spots, and the PlayStation 5 stays comfortably in third ahead of the Switch Lite. There are ongoing stock issues for next-generation consoles, but the PS5 is hanging in there, and with tonight’s State of Play, perhaps there will be even more reason for people to pick up Sony’s console.

  1. Switch OLED Model – 30,702 (1,829,023)
  2. Switch – 21,612 (18,327,035)
  3. PlayStation 5 – 13,495 (1,411,378)
  4. Switch Lite – 8,563 (4,734,788)
  5. Xbox Series S – 1,654 (113,227)
  6. PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – 1,335 (238,567)
  7. Xbox Series X – 887 (101,322)
  8. New 2DS LL (including 2DS) – 164 (1,186,379)
  9. PlayStation 4 – 16 (7,819,584)
