Swsh

Famitsu's Japanese chart figures are now in for 18th - 24th November, revealing that Pokémon Sword and Shield is still dominating sales in the country.

The two titles sold an estimated 1.3 million copies in their opening week, becoming the fastest-selling Switch game in Japan. This week was naturally much lower than that, but 382,540 is still a mightily high number and one which most games can't match in their launch week.

Other Switch titles take up most of the top ten, with Ring Fit Adventure jumping back up to second place.

Here are the top 10 (first numbers are this week's estimated sales, followed by total sales):
