Japanese chart figures are now in for 18th - 24th February, revealing that EA's Anthem has swooped in at number one, keeping New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe in second place for another week.

Mario has been sitting high at the top of the Japanese charts ever since it released, often finding itself at number one before being knocked down by a new release, only to return to the top weeks later. Anthem's 77,938 first-week sales were more than enough to keep Mario down this time, though.

Elsewhere, Girls und Panzer: Dream Tank Match DX was the Switch's biggest new entry this week, coming in at 13th, and Capcom's Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy managed to sell slightly more copies on Switch than PS4 in its opening week.
