Here’s the latest sales report from Famitsu (and Media Create), covering Week 46, 2019 in Japan.

There are a couple of new releases in the Top 10 Software provided by Famitsu, and the real star is obviously Pokémon Sword and Shield with 1 364 544 units sold. We already talked at great lengths about those sales in this post, so make sure to check it out!

Other than Pokémon Sword and Shield, there isn’t much new in the Top 10, just the usual evergreen titles and recent releases. Here’s how they fared this week:

  • 03./02. [NSW] Luigi’s Mansion 3 (Nintendo) – 29.718 / 235.047 (-46%). It will reach the 250 000 units milestone next week;
  • 04./03. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure (Nintendo) – 28.015 / 263.940 (-46%). After several strong weeks, stock problems have come to ruin the party. Sales are still strong, but they could have been stronger had Nintendo been able to ship enough copies to retailers…
  • 07./07. [NSW] Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Tokyo 2020 (Sega) – 9.042 / 42.756 (-37%). Sales remain on the disappointing side for now;
  • 09./08. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft Game Studios) – 7.637 / 1.003.160 (-8%). After many weeks of strong and steady sales, Minecraft has finally sold over 1 million units on Nintendo Switch, and it’s not even done selling! Will it be able to sell over 2 million units? This game is the first third-party title to sell over 1 million units in Japan alone, and also the first Microsoft game to become a million-seller in that country.
