The Media Creates figures for week three of January 2018 are in, and they show another strong set of performances for Nintendo Switch in the East. Nine games in the top 20 are on Nintendo's latest platform with Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle continuing to show cross-market appeal as it grabs the number one slot.

Splatoon 2 (3), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (4), Super Mario Odyssey (7) and The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild (10) all held strong in the top 10 when it came to Switch titles, while Pokémon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon (8) and Mario Party: The Top 100 (9) prove 3DS still has plenty of fans in Japan. The Famitsu charts also saw Mario + Rabbids on top with 14 out of 30 of the charted titles on Nintendo Switch.

Hardware wise, PS4 outperformed Switch to take the number one slot on both charts, but the Nintendo hybrid console still racked up 43,027 units sold, while the collective 3DS family sold a total of 12, 115 according to the Media Creates figures.

Nintendo Switch is still continuing to perform in Japan, and the launch of Mario + Rabbids is obviously helping a great deal. Let us know what you think of these new figures in the comments section below...
