Japanese sales figures are now in for the week of 24th - 30th September, with multiple new Switch releases jumping immediately into the top ten of the charts.

Warriors Orochi 4 was the top-selling new release in Japan both on Switch, and as a whole, with the PlayStation 4 version selling 100,831 retail copies as opposed to Switch's 26,660. This happens to be quite the trend this week, as FIFA 19 saw similarly strong sales on Sony's machine (57,772 copies), with Nintendo's sales being considerably lower at 16,200.

While PlayStation is currently sitting pretty at the top of the software charts, the Switch has kept a dominance on the top 20 overall, snagging 14 of the available spots.
