Japanese chart figures are in for 15th - 21st October, revealing that Super Mario Party has held onto to its second place position, only losing out to the still-new Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII.

Yes, Mario's board game antics have generated another 36,381 sales in the region this week, falling from last week's 63,451. There are some Switch newcomers entering the chart too, such as Dark Souls: Remastered which secured a fourth-place spot in its opening week, and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy which landed a little further down in 11th, but Mario's still leading the charge for Nintendo.
