Hats off to Capcom and the PS4/Xbox One release of Monster Hunter World. The returning co-op-centric franchise has stormed the Japanese charts according to the latest Media Create figures, taking the number one slot from Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (which held the position for just one week following its own debut). It comes hot off the heels of some seriously strong performances for Capcom, but that hasn't stopped Nintendo software titles from dominating most of the other slots in the top 10.

Mario Rabbids is now in second place with 26,088 units sold in the week ending 28th January, with Splatoon 2 coming in at three (25,776), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at four (21,834), Super Mario Odyssey at five (16,664), Pokémon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon at six (12,702) and The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild (10,240). Even Yo-kai Watch Busters 2 made some waves at number nine (7,755).

In terms of hardware, vanilla PS4 sold the most (no doubt off the back of Monster Hunter), but Nintendo Switch came in second with an impressive 47,107 units shifted. Not bad at all.
