The Japanese chart data is in, and it's a mixed bag of highs and lows for Nintendo this week. Splatoon 2, having hit the two million sales mark last week, crept into the top three behind PS4 remake Secret Of Mana and the ever powerful Monster Hunter World.

However, the Switch port of Bayonetta 2 and the Ultimate Climax Edition (the game's fancy and enviable special edition in Japan) failed to make the top 10 debuting at 14 and 13 respectively. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe holds onto sixth place, but Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle drops from seventh to 10th. In fact, slots 11 to 20 are dominated by Nintendo-based software.
