Japanese chart figures are now in for 21st - 27th January, revealing that New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe has now sold more than 300,000 units in the country alone.

The game shifted another 57,725 copies this week, taking its total up to 312,869 and keeping it safely within the top three positions at retail. Kingdom Hearts III takes number one this week with a total of 610,077 retail copies being sold on PS4; the game only released digitally on Xbox One meaning sales were not tracked.
