As has been the case for a while now, Nintendo dominated the Japanese gaming charts once again last week, taking every single top-ten spot and securing 17 of the top 20 chart positions.

Last week was Obon in Japan, a traditional custom that has become a major holiday in the region, so no new games were released into the market. That doesn't mean that the chart didn't see several shifts in position, however, with Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition taking the glory this time around. 

Here's a look at the top 20 (first numbers are this week's sales, followed by total sales in brackets):
