The latest Media Create Japanese charts have arrived, bringing with them more positive news of Summer sales for Nintendo.

On the software side Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer stays on top with over 180,000 sales in its second week, pushing it beyond 700,000 retail sales already. The two iterations of Yo-Kai Watch Busters continue to do well on 3DS, while Splatoon is in 3rd place once again - it's now passed half a million retail sales in Japan.
