The Media Create chart results are out for Japan, and it's all about sequels - that and the Switch still merrily outselling everything else.

In the software charts Destiny 2 took top spot, though it didn't blow the competition away. Splatoon 2 is ticking along nicely just behind; Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 made its debut on Switch in third place with a relatively modest launch. All told it was a pretty quiet week, with results below.

Moving on to hardware, most systems saw a decline compared to last week; the PS4 Pro was an outlier, helped by a Destiny 2 bundle. The Switch is still well out in front, though the New 3DS LL and New 2DS LL (XL) both slipped into four figures each; the results are below with last week's sales in brackets.

  1. Switch – 45,439 (50,074)
  2. PlayStation 4 – 18,483 (21,419)
  3. PlayStation 4 Pro – 10,999 (4,965)

  11. Xbox One – 63 (78)

So there you have it, a decent week for Nintendo in a relatively quiet spell.
