Nintendo's Japanese chart success has continued once again this week, with the Switch being the most popular consoleand  its games filling sixteen of the top twenty places.

It wasn't a Switch or 3DS title sitting on top of the pile this time around, as the newly released Yakuza 3 soared to the top with 26,047 sales on PS4, but the overall chart shows a familiar picture.
