It's Media Create chart time, in which we see what's hot and what's not in Nintendo's homeland. This week brings a new release on Sony hardware to the top of the software chart, though Nintendo hardware continues its recent lead.

Bandai Namco's Tales of Berseria is the newcomer, with its PS4 and PS3 releases pushing more established 3DS and Wii U titles further down the reckoning. Nevertheless Yo-kai Watch 3 continues to do rather well, in particular, while Minecraft: Wii U Edition is the best performer for Nintendo's home console; the top 20 is below with lifetime sales in brackets.
