The latest Japanese charts are in thanks to Gematsu and there's been a few changes to the line-up this week. First up of course, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes has comfortably taken the top spot with a healthy 97,538 units sold, with Nintendo Switch Sports scoring silver at 19,255 units.
Mario Strikers: Battle League sees another drop in sales and falls down to sixth place in the charts, so it's probably safe to assume that the fervour around the title has well and truly died down at this point. It's nice to see Animal Crossing: New Horizons back in the top ten at number nine, and it definitely makes us wonder if any other title here will reach its monumental lifetime sales.
