While Detective Pikachu had a lackluster debut last week in the UK, the 3DS-based spin-off fared far better in Japan with a respectable 42,013 units sold. That puts it in fourth place with Kirby Star Allies performing well enough to hold off two big releases on PS4.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition also debuted in the top at number six, with Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild all holding strong in the top ten.
