Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles has been pushed down to third from its first place debut last week. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has raced to fourth, while Kirby and the Forgotten Land lands a respectable fifth place spot.

As for hardware, the Switch OLED held the top spot, selling 28,267 additional units. This is followed by the standard Switch in second (19,089) and the Switch Lite in third (9,193).

That's a good number for a Nintendo spin-off and a Warriors game. I don't if Mario Strikers: Battle League is going to sell more than 100,000 units, if it ever gets there. I wonder did Sony make sure to have enough PS5 units on the shelf to avoid a repeat of last week where both X Series S and X outsold it. Switch hardware sales are continuing their downward trend year-on-year. This time last year Switch sold 73,000 units for regular and Lite, while this week it's 48,500 units for 3 models.
