The Media Create results are in for the Japanese charts, and last week was relatively busy - it's was also another solid seven days for Nintendo.

Every title missed out to The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III on PS4 in first place, but it was a mixed debut for Fire Emblem Warriors; on Switch it secured third place with 41,491 sales, while on New Nintendo 3DS / New 2DS it only shifted 18,357 copies. The combined total is less than Hyrule Warriors managed in its debut week, while Hyrule Warriors Legends shifted 54,479 copies when it arrived in early 2016.

Moving on, Splatoon 2 keeps ticking along while Pokkén Tournament DX had a relatively modest second week. Also of note is FIFA 18; the PS4 version secured second spot, while the Switch iteration (admittedly working with a smaller userbase) only managed less than a quarter of the PS4 sales with 12,616 units. FIFA was given a big push for Switch in Japan; in fact the earliest real footage of the game earlier this year was in a Japanese commercial.
