The numbers on Famitsu’s Japanese charts are for the week ending October 24th, reflecting a relatively quiet week from a software perspective.

The only new entry in the top 10 is Blue Reflection: Second Light, with the second PS4 version and the seventh Switch iteration. The first two places are both PS4 titles, but the top ten are all Nintendo Switch. There are quite a few evergreen titles, but Metroid Dread’s sales have more than halved, dropping to fourth place this week.

Interestingly, Ring Fit Adventure climbed to 3rd place (12th place last week), with sales up about a third. It was a truly remarkable and consistent success, recalling the memory of continued demand for the Wii Fit two generations ago.

Below are the top 10 (first number is estimated sales for this week, then total sales).


  1. [PS4] Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles (Aniplex, 10/14/21) – 15,996 (110,845)
  2. [PS4] Blue Reflection: Second Light (Koei Tecmo, 10/21/21) – 14,048 (new)
  3. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure (Nintendo, 19/10/18) – 10,155 (2,879,734)
  4. [NSW] Metroid Dread (Nintendo, 10/08/21) – 9,999 (119,018)
  5. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo, December 7, 2018) – 9,360 (4,469,716)
  6. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, April 28, 2017) – 8,695 (4,103,819)
  7. [NSW] Blue Reflection: Second Light (Koei Tecmo, 10/21/21) – 8,380 (new)
  8. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft, June 21, 2018) – 8,306 (2,243,119)
  9. [NSW] Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Nintendo, 03/20/20) – 6,581 (6,909,879)
  10. [NSW] Pokemon Sword and Shield (Pokemon Company, 19/11/15) – 6,280 (4,169,875)

In the hardware chart, the position remains about the same, led by the latest Switch OLED model. As a sign that its sales reflect a supply that is struggling to meet demand, Nintendo has shifted nearly twice as many units as last week, so Nintendo has clearly put a little more stock in stores. .. 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 – 11,526 (951,035)
  4. Switch Lite – 8,295 (4,106,660)
  5. Xbox Series S – 3,815 (45,675)
  6. PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – 2,754 (182,857)
  7. PlayStation 4 – 462 (7,814,542)
  8. New 2DS LL (including 2DS) – 449 (1,175,772)
  9. Xbox Series X-74 (64,992)
