Swordshield

Famitsu's Japanese chart figures are now in for 13th - 19th January, revealing that Pokémon Sword and Shield has lost its first-place position after nine straight weeks at the top.

The two titles lost out to new Yakuza and Dragon Ball Z releases this week, but it's not all bad for the monster-catching beast. Lifetime sales for Sword and Shield have now reached an estimated 3,312,358, overtaking Splatoon 2's total which stood at 3,288,270 last week and helping it to become the second best-selling Switch game in the region behind Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (although perhaps not for long, looking at the figures below).

Elsewhere, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore debuted in sixth spot, selling 18,797 copies in its opening week.
