Famitsu’s Japanese chart figures are now in for both 27th April – 3rd May and 4th – 10th May after a delay in chart publication last week. As such, we have a bumper episode of data for you this time around. Strap in!

It probably comes as no surprise that Animal Crossing: New Horizons is still comfortably at number one, now finding itself sitting at a staggering total of 4,350,458 physical copies sold in Japan alone. Even now, almost two months after launch, it’s still selling around 200,000 boxed copies in Nintendo’s home region per week.

You’ll find the top ten lists for both weeks mentioned below (first numbers are that week’s estimated sales, followed by total sales):
