Japanese charts: Demon Slayer retains top spot as Pokemon re-enters Top Ten

Image: Nintendo

We have the latest Japanese charts (thanks Gematsu) and there are some major minor changes. First up, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles retains the top spot this week with 20,964 units sold, but Nintendo Switch Sports and Mario Strikers: Battle League have shifted positions, slightly altering the top three. Sales of Mario Strikers fell sharply from the previous week, marking a 147% drop in total sales.

Meanwhile, in a rather curious turn of events, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl have re-entered the top ten charts with 5,043 units sold, bringing total sales since the games’ launch to a respectable 2,560. .536 units.

Otherwise, it’s pretty much business as usual. It’s great to see the Nintendo Switch once again occupy the entirety of the top ten list, demonstrating the considerable popularity of the system in its native Japan.

Here’s a look at this week’s charts in their entirety:

  1. [NSW] Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles (Aniplex, 06/09/22) – 20,964 (111,849)
  2. [NSW] Nintendo Switch Sports (Nintendo, 04/29/22) – 18,789 (493,046)
  3. [NSW] Mario Strikers: Battle League (Nintendo, 06/10/22) – 13,002 (45,175)
  4. [NSW] Kirby and the Forgotten Land (Nintendo, 03/25/22) – 8,649
  5. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, 04/28/17) – 8,456 (4,682,390)
  6. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft, 06/21/18) – 6,887 (2,677,377)
  7. [NSW] Overlord: Escape from Nazarick (Kadokawa, 06/16/22) – 5,682 (New)
  8. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure (Nintendo, 10/18/19) – 5,462 (3,181,291)
  9. [NSW] Pokémon Shiny Diamond / Shiny Pearl (The Pokémon Company, 11/19/21) – 5,043 (2,560,536)
  10. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo, 12/07/18) – 4,364 (4,905,190)

With hardware sales, the biggest change this week belongs to the PlayStation 5, which dropped several places to come in at number six (with the Digital Edition right behind at number seven). It seems safe to assume that stocks for the week must have been tight, as sales are down nearly 10,000 units from the previous week. The Switch is still the best, with the OLED model in particular turning up some impressive numbers. As we mentioned earlier, of course, the Switch has now sold over 25 million units in Japan.

Shout out to the new 2DS LL too, still holding on!

  1. Change OLED model: 22,860 (1,899,156)
  2. Change – 19,907 (18,399,758)
  3. Change Lite – 7,638 (4,761,895)
  4. Xbox Series S: 3,423 (130,076)
  5. Xbox Series X: 3,272 (108,983)
  6. PlayStation 5 – 2,371 (1,451,795)
  7. PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – 664 (242,208)
  8. New 2DS LL (including 2DS) – 215 (1,187,058)
  9. PlayStation 4–18 (7,819,701)
