Famitsu has released the latest weekly charts for software and hardware sales in Japan, and last week saw a significant amount of software activity in particular thanks to a couple of major new releases. The biggest one was Tales of Arise, of course, which has already sold over one million copies worldwide – a global success that, unsurprisingly, is reflected in its sales in Japan as well. The PS4 version of the game is peaking, selling over 151,000 units, while the PS5 version comes in at No. 3 with over 50,000 units sold.

Sandwiched between the two in WarioWare: Come Together !, which has also enjoyed an impressive first appearance in its own right, selling over 72,000 copies. Nintendo Switch version of Ys 9: Monstrum Nox it also launched last week, which debuted in ninth place, selling over 7,000 copies.

Meanwhile, in terms of hardware, the Nintendo Switch remains the top seller, with over 67,000 units sold last week. The PS5 is the second-best performer, though it tracks the Switch by a considerable amount, having moved over 16,000 units during the week.
