It's the middle of the week, which means it's time for the Media Create chart results out of Japan. It was a notable week with a couple of new Switch releases, so let's get to it.

Pokkén Tournament DX was the main arrival, and it secured top spot; its 53,395 physical retail sales didn't hit the heights of the original on Wii U, which shifted nearly 70,000 units when it launched. Reasons can include the smaller install base of the Switch (for now, at least) and the fact that not all who bought the original will want to double dip.

Elsewhere a Dragon Quest X 'all in one' release only managed four figures on its Switch debut; in general it was a quiet week in the top 20. 

  1. [NSW] Pokkén Tournament DX (Nintendo, 09/22/17) – 53,395 (New)
  2. [NSW] Splatoon 2 (Nintendo, 07/21/17) – 21,897 (1,160,859)

  20. [PS3] Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 (Konami, 09/14/17) – 4,068 (16,845)

In terms of hardware there were small dips for most systems, though the Switch is still comfortably ahead of the rest, with New 3DS and 2DS LL still sitting behind the PS4.

  1. Switch – 43,426 (44,052)
  2. PlayStation 4 – 18,396 (19,322)

  9. PlayStation 3 – 87 (99)
  10. Xbox One – 76 (57)
  11. Wii U – 56 (86)

A reasonable week for Pokkén Tournament DX and Nintendo in general, albeit the fighting title didn't set the charts alight.
