Wondering how the Switch held up in Japan over the last two weeks? Switch titles made up 9 of the top 10 best-selling software list. Nintendo Switch Sports has overtaken Xenoblade Chronicles 3 for the top spot. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe races to third place, likely seeing a massive Sales boost due to the timely release of Wave 2 of the Booster Course Pass paid DLC. Monster Hunter Rise + Sunbreak Set continues to maintain its fourth position.

As for hardware, the Switch held its top spot with the OLED model, selling 94,827 additional units. This is followed by Sony’s PlayStation 5, with the standard Switch in third (35,071), and the Switch Lite in fourth (23,924).

Check out the full rundown for software and hardware for August 1st to August 14th, 2022 below! Seeing as last week was skipped, Famitsu will eventually be sharing separate reports for this week and last, but for now all we have access to is the combined sales.

Switch shortages? Pfft! What shortages? Hardware sales are double what they were last week. They're great numbers, what's not so great is the software numbers. In particular Xenoblade Chronicles 3, sales have dropped right off. Can't see it being a million seller in Japan. And Live A Live has no chance of reaching that milestone.
