Japanese sales figures are now in for the week of 1st - 7th October, revealing that Super Mario Party managed to jump right to the top of the charts with a very impressive sales total indeed.

The moustachioed plumber's latest outing generated 142,868 sales in its opening weekend. Of course, the game only arrived in stores on 5th October (with these figures only being counted until the 7th), and this data only covers physical sales, so that number would be significantly higher if digital sales were also shared.

Elsewhere, Mega Man 11 sold 14,650 copies on Switch and 12,052 on PlayStation 4, shooting the Switch version slightly above its counterpart into fourth place.
