Super Mario Party has just faced its second week in stores, and Japanese figures (from 8th - 14th October) report that its sales have remained relatively high, despite dropping to second place in the charts.

The new rival taking over that prized top spot is, of course, the newly-released Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII, selling a very impressive 228,775 retail sales in the region. For the sake of comparison, Super Mario Party managed 142,868 sales in its first week, with this week's total at a lower number of 63,451.

Elsewhere, things have been rather quiet in the Japanese charts, with no new major Nintendo releases to speak of. The Switch's heavy-hitters are still sitting in and around the top of the charts, however, as is usually the case.
