We may be in the middle of the Holidays, but we still have the Media Create results to show us what's hot - and what's not - in Japan. Unsurprisingly, Nintendo's latest system is continuing to fly off the shelves.

Before we get to that, though, we have the software results to look at, and the number one with some fantastic numbers is a surprise with Super Mario Odyssey; the fact the sales include the hardware bundle will have contributed a lot. The top 9 are all Switch and 3DS titles, which is excellent for Nintendo in such a key shopping period - results are below with lifetime sales in brackets.
