It's that mid-week point of the Media Create chart results out of Japan, and a week with no new releases in the top 20 sees familiar favourites still leading the charge.

Kirby: Planet Robobot has followed up its number one debut with a second week at number one, nearly hitting a quarter of a million overall sales (it's very like surpassed that number with eShop sales added). A number of the usual contenders are then found, such as Yo-kai Sangokushi in second spot and a few other Nintendo system exclusives in the top 10; Splatoon is the highest-placed Wii U title. The top 20 is below with lifetime sales in brackets.
