Famitsu's Japanese chart figures are now in for 13th - 19th April, revealing that Animal Crossing: New Horizons once again dominated weekly sales.

The game shifted an estimated 286,586 copies in Japan last week, showing crazy levels of momentum as it comfortably pushes last week's number one, Final Fantasy VII Remake, down into second spot. In terms of physical sales in the region, New Horizons has now surpassed Pokémon Sword and Shield's lifetime total, meaning that it's just become the second best-selling Switch game in Nintendo's home country after just a month on sale.
