It's Media Create charts time, once again, giving us some insight into what's hot and not in the Japanese market. This week's results brought a handful of new releases, while hardware sales stayed relatively solid.

Kicking off with software, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is a newcomer on PS4 that took top spot, edging out Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in the process. Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers is a notable arrival at retail on the Switch, and it's secured third place with a relatively modest 16,404 sales.
