Japanese chart figures are now in for 12th November - 18th November, unsurprisingly revealing that Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! have snagged top spot without any concern from rival games. The Switch has also seen a hugely significant boost in sales as a result.

The new entries into the Pokémon franchise generated a whopping 661,240 sales in just three days, easily beating this week's other major entry Fallout 76 by just under 600,000. Of course, it's worth noting that these figures only take into account physical sales, so digital sales will likely take that number up a few notches, too.

Also new on Switch this week was RPG Maker MV which shifted a much more modest 2,641 copies. Here's a look at the top 20 (first numbers are this week's sales, followed by total sales in brackets):
