What a lovely day!

Round two of Japan game sales this week, this time covering the actual Golden Week. So what did people buy? Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. A lot of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. No new games were released during the holidays, so people bought more Mario Kart. Even Mario Kart 7returned to the top 20.

The Nintendo Switch’s numbers leveled back down to 47,000, but Xbox One sales increased by 500% from the previous week, from 101 up to 677. We believe in you Xbox One!
