Wondering how the Switch held up in Japan this week? Switch titles made up only 3 of the top 10 best-selling software list, which is due to the debut of a few major titles on PlayStation 4/5. SD Gundam Battle Alliance from Bandai Namco is the first of the three Switch games to make the list, earning itself second place and outselling the PS4 version by over 20k copies. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Nintendo Switch Sports placed in seventh and eighth respectively.

As for hardware, the Switch maintained its top spot with the OLED model, selling 87,321 additional units. This is followed by the standard Switch in second (17,558), with the Switch Lite in fifth (8,651), surpassed by the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X.

Kind of funny that Sony Playstation have 4/5 of the top spots. 😉 That's some turnaround, going from last week where they had 0 games in the top 30 to now dominating the top 10 with 7 places and the number 1 game.

Japan truly loves their handhelds. The sales of the OLED Model reinforces this, it sold over 3 times that of the original model and Lite combined.
