The Switch had another solid week in Japan as it continued to post impressive February numbers. Although the system sold fewer units than the week before, the console still sold 53,000 units during the week ending February 24. Once again, the console outsold all other hardware for the week combined.

On the software side, Anthem sold 78,000 units during its launch week. It’s not a bad figure but is dwarfed by most other big Japanese launches. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate took the second and third spots, respectively. NieR: Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition took fourth and Jump Force took fifth place. Stunningly, for the first time in a while, Nintendo had just five games in the top 10.
