Nintendo's reign over the Japanese charts has been receiving the odd dent or two over the last couple of weeks, with a healthy number of top-tier PlayStation titles wreaking havoc at the top. This week's no different, with a couple of new releases spoiling Nintendo's fun once again.

Marvel’s Spider-Man unsurprisingly takes the top spot this week after taking the world by storm, selling a whopping 125,154 copies at retail (that's physical only) to get there. Last week's number one, Pro Evolution Soccer 2019, has remained near the top with a number two finish, and yet another new PS4 release has rounded off the top three.

SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy was a new entry for both systems this week, although the PS4 managed to shift 10,018 retail copies, while the Switch version sold 5,493.
