Crikey, there’s just no stopping Splatoon 3, is there? For a game that caused many to question the validity of its own existence, its success in Japan (and worldwide, mind you!) has proven that the franchise is undoubtedly as popular as ever. Selling 301,845 copies last week, the sequel is swifly closing in on 3 million total sales in Japan, which is frankly just mad considering it’s only been out for a few weeks.

Elsewhere, Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival makes its debut at number two with 31,085 copies sold. It’s certainly a modest number compared to Splatoon 3, but still an impressive start for the new entry, regardless (be sure to check out our review while you’re at it!). The Diofield Chronicle also enters the top ten at number eight, having sold a total of 6,415 copies.

Here’s the overall top ten from the week of 19th to 25th September, 2022:

  1. [NSW] Splatoon 3 (Nintendo, 09/09/22) – 301,845 (2,743,135)
  2. [NSW] Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival (Bandai Namco, 09/22/22) – 31,085 (New)
  3. [PS5] Horizon Forbidden West (SIE, 02/18/22) – 10,263 (81,479)
  4. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, 04/28/17) – 9,617 (4,847,032)
  5. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft, 06/21/18) – 8,829 (2,801,507)
  6. [NSW] Dragon Quest X: Rise of the Five Tribes Offline (Square Enix, 09/15/22) – 8,554 (152,390)
  7. [NSW] Nintendo Switch Sports (Nintendo, 04/29/22) – 8,538 (740,713)
  8. [NSW] The DioField Chronicle (Square Enix, 09/22/22) – 6,415 (New)
  9. [PS4] Dragon Quest X: Rise of the Five Tribes Offline (Square Enix, 09/15/22) – 5,642 (53,742)
  10. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo, 12/07/18) – 5,079 (4,981,611)

There’s little change on the hardware front this week, with the Switch continuing to dominate comfortably. Having said that, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S is currently beating out the Switch Lite thanks to growing stock supplies and various promotions; honestly, it’s quite nice to see Xbox seeing increased success in a region its consistently struggled to gain traction in.

  1. Switch OLED Model – 55,646 (2,678,496)
  2. Switch – 26,944 (18,719,387)
  3. PlayStation 5 – 26,380 (1,684,810)
  4. Xbox Series S – 11,635 (190,092)
  5. Switch Lite – 3,982 (4,895,210)
  6. PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – 3,142 (270,393)
  7. Xbox Series X – 544 (160,335)
  8. New 2DS LL (including 2DS) – 41 (1,188,750)
  9. PlayStation 4 – 10 (7,819,882)
