That's a decent second week of sales for Kirby and the Forgotten Land. 7 games on Sony platforms in the top 40, that's a rare occurrence these days I think. One new game on Switch, Birushana Senki: Ichijuu no Kaze. Its sales are brutal though, 3,742. Echoing the point, that 3rd party sales on Switch, by and large, are awful.

Mario Party Superstars is slowly inching its way to the 1 million milestone, though its well over that if you include digital sales. And Breath of the Wild may break 2 million in physical sales next week.
