The Media Create Japanese chart results are out, and they bring positive news for Nintendo as they have a lead in both software and hardware.

In the software charts we have ARMS clinging on to top spot, very narrowly seeing off the challenge from the retail iteration of the PS4 expansion Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood. We then have The Alliance Alive as a new game on 3DS, while the likes of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild continue to perform quite well.

Moving on to hardware, the Nintendo Switch numbers drop back after the increased sales that accompanied the launch of ARMS. It's still in top spot ahead of PS4, while the New 3DS LL (XL) is firmly placed in third spot; the results below have last week's sales in brackets. 

  1. Switch – 22,361 (37,709)

  8. Xbox One – 265 (308)
  9. PlayStation 3 – 201 (298)

So there you have it, a reasonable week all around from Nintendo's perspective.
