The Japanese Famitsu chart data is for the week ending October 24 and reflects a relatively quiet week in terms of software.

The only new entry in the top 10 is Blue Reflection: Second Light, with the PS4 version in second position and the Switch version in seventh. The first two places are taken by both PS4 games, but then the top ten are all Nintendo Switch. There are quite a few evergreen games out there, while Metroid Dread’s sales have more than halved, and it has dropped to # 4 this week.

Interestingly, Ring Fit Adventure climbed to third place (it was 12th last week) and its sales are up about a third. It has indeed become a notable and enduring success on Switch, bringing back memories of the continued demand for Wii Fit two generations ago.

Below are the top ten (the first numbers are the estimated sales for this week, followed by the total sales):


  1. [PS4] Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles (Aniplex, 14.10.21) – 15 996 (110 845)
  2. [PS4] Blue Reflection: Second Light (Koei Tecmo, 10/21/21) – 14048 (New)
  3. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure (Nintendo, 10/18/19) – 10155 (2879734)
  4. [NSW] Metroid Dread (Nintendo, 10/21/21) – 9999 (119018)
  5. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo, 12/07/18) – 9360 (4469716);
  6. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, 04/28/17) – 8 695 (4 103 819);
  7. [NSW] Blue Reflection: Second Light (Koei Tecmo, 10/21/21) – 8,380 (New)
  8. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft, 06/21/18) – 8 306 (2243 119);
  9. [NSW] Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Nintendo, 3/20/20) – 6,581 (6,909,879)
  10. [NSW] Pokémon Sword and Shield (The Pokemon Company, 11/15/19) – 6280 (4,169,875)

In the hardware diagrams, positions remain largely the same, with the latest Switch OLED model leading the way. In a sign that its sales reflect supply’s push to meet demand, it has nearly doubled from last week, so Nintendo has apparently increased its in-store inventory. In any case, the Switch family continues to lead.

  1. Switch OLED model – 61 169 (242 072)
  2. Switch – 38 658 (17 267 673)
  3. PlayStation 5 – 11526 (951,035)
  4. Switch Lite – 8 295 (4 106 660)
  5. Xbox Series S – 3815 (45675)
  6. PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – 2754 (182857)
  7. PlayStation 4 – 462 (7 814 542)
  8. New 2DS LL (including 2DS) – 449 (1,175,772)
  9. Xbox Series X – 74 (64,992);
