Monster Hunter Stories 2: Ruin Wings was the biggest new game to come out last week, so it’s no surprise that Capcom’s turn-based RPG for video game software and hardware sales in Japan last week peaked. The game sold over 137,000 copies within three days.
It has a comfortable lead over the second-placed game, a Konami baseball sim EBaseball Pro 2021 Baseball Spirits: Full Camp, which sold over 106,000 units. In the meantime, Mario Golf: Super Rush, which topped charts last week, dropped to third place, selling over 17,000 units. Favorite things Ring Fit Adventure, Minecraft, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, a Ultimate Smash Bros. continue to figure in the top 10, not surprisingly.
Meanwhile, in terms of hardware, almost all operating systems saw a slight decline in sales, but as usual, the Nintendo Switch was once again the top selling console by a very comfortable margin, moving over 69,000 units throughout the week . Coming in second is the PS5, which continues to sell at a disappointingly slow rate, with over 14,000 units sold last week.
