Last week's Media Create chart data for Japan is in, and it shows Nintendo Switch making an all-out assault on the top five with no less than four titles jostling for control. And while Monster Hunter World continues to hold the top spot, Dragon Quest Builders debuted a mere 10,000 units behind Capcom's behemoth at number two.

Behind the Switch port comes Splatoon 2 at 3, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at 4 and the launch game to end all launch games (yes, we mean The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild) claiming number five. Super Mario Odyssey remains in the top 10, as does Pokémon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon. All in all, Nintendo-based titles claimed 13 spots in the top 20.

On the hardware front, Nintendo Switch finally pulled ahead of the vanilla PS4 (and by a huge margin, too). The arrival of DQB clearly had a big impact on sales, but then again Japan is still very much the Dragon Quest heartland.

1 Switch – 45,083 (39,696)
2 PlayStation 4 – 20,070 (29,392)
3 PlayStation Vita – 6,518 (5,017)
4 PlayStation 4 Pro – 6,499 (5,383)
5 New 2DS LL – 6,113 (6,693)
6 New 3DS LL – 4,326 (3,693)
7 2DS – 901 (850)
8 Xbox One X – 147 (139)
9 Xbox One – 117 (135)
