The Media Create Japanese chart results are out, and this week has some interest for Nintendo fans courtesy of the debut of ARMS.

Nintendo's new IP claimed number one spot and passed 100,000 sales, though that's well below the figures we saw for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe when it arrived in late April (it hit over 280,000 units on its debut). For a fresh franchise it's a decent outcome, we'd suggest, while Switch games account for the top three in what was otherwise a quiet week.

  1. [NSW] Arms (Nintendo, 06/16/17) – 100,652 (New)
  2. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, 04/28/17) – 16,822 (522,091)
  3. [NSW] The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Limited Edition Included) (Nintendo, 03/03/17) – 10,200 (504,726)
  4. [3DS] Monster Hunter XX (Capcom, 03/16/17) – 8,638 (1,521,453)
  5. [PS4] Tekken 7 (Bandai Namco, 06/01/17) – 5,407 (76,603)
  6. [PS4] Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana (Falcom, 05/25/17) – 4,697 (47,964)
  7. [3DS] Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission X (Bandai Namco, 04/27/17) – 3,598 (167,050)
  8. [PS4] Grand Theft Auto V (Low Price Version) (Take-Two, 10/08/15) – 3,588 (349,575)
  9. [PS4] NieR: Automata (Square Enix, 02/23/17) – 3,198 (344,841)
  10. [3DS] Pokemon Sun / Pokemon Moon (Nintendo, 11/18/16) – 2,971 (3,275,414)
  11. [PS4] Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition (SIE, 03/19/15) – 2,940 (1,164,180)
  12. [NSW] Seiken Densetsu Collection (Square Enix, 06/01/17) – 2,835 (37,728)
  13. [3DS] Animal Crossing: New Leaf Amiibo+ (Nintendo, 11/23/16) – 2,747 (190,346)
  14. [NSW] 1-2-Switch (Nintendo, 03/03/17) – 2,618 (222,668)
  15. [3DS] Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS (Nintendo, 12/01/16) – 2,599 (1,052,401)
  16. [Wii U] The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo, 03/03/17) – 2,242 (133,024)
  17. [3DS] Mario Sports Superstars (Nintendo, 03/30/17) – 2,195 (102,977)
  18. [3DS] Mario Kart 7 (Nintendo, 12/01/11) – 2,145 (2,783,005)
  19. [3DS] Pro Yakyuu Famista Climax (Bandai Namco, 04/20/17) – 2,135 (86,616)
  20. [PS4] Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition (SIE, 12/03/15) – 2,074 (193,485)

Moving on to hardware we see an increase for Nintendo Switch, likely helped by ARMS and some restocks, while PS4 consolidates second place ahead of the New 3DS LL (XL). The results are below with last week's sales in brackets.

  1. Switch – 37,709 (27,291)
  2. PlayStation 4 – 18,251 (14,595)
  3. New 3DS LL – 11,592 (11,442)
  4. PlayStation 4 Pro – 5,795 (4,546)
  5. PlayStation Vita – 4,149 (4,063)
  6. 2DS – 2,655 (2,752)
  7. New 3DS – 815 (917)
  8. Xbox One – 308 (166)
  9. PlayStation 3 – 298 (392)
  10. Wii U – 199 (255)

A solid debut for ARMS, which showed that it certainly has some reach with Switch owners.
