It's the middle of the week, which means the Media Create Japanese chart results have been issued. The results bring mixed fortunes from a Nintendo perspective, so let's get to it.

Starting with software, Everybody's Golf on PS4 made its debut at number one, though Splatoon 2's ongoing popularity secured it second place. Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 on 3DS took third place with 29,887 sales, which unfortunately is down on the equivalent launch sales of its predecessor. The underwhelming performance of Monster Hunter XX on Switch continued, too, with its sales rather low by the IP's lofty standards. Further down the charts Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of the Dusk arrived in 12th on 3DS, while the Switch version of Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon was unsurprisingly (considering current install base etc) the lowest selling of its multiple versions.

The top 20 is below with lifetime sales in brackets.

Another decent week for Nintendo all told, though Atlus and Capcom may be a little disappointed; the former at seeing a sequel sell less than half the original, and the latter due to the ongoing sluggish sales of Monster Hunter XX.
