Mario Party Superstars and Nintendo Switch were the best sellers last week in Japan

Famitsu has published its estimate of video games and physical consoles sold in Japan during the week from January 17 to 23, a period that has not left big headlines and that seems to be calm while waiting for the big launch of the month, that of Leyendas Pokmon Arceus (which will arrive exclusively on Nintendo Switch on Friday, January 28).

In fact, in the list of the 10 best-selling physical games last week in Japan there is no new release, and the best-selling title was Mario Party Superstars for Nintendo Switch, which exceeded 20,000 units. Perhaps the most remarkable thing is that this title has managed to break the streak of Pokemon Shiny Diamond/Shiny Pearl, which had so far been the best seller week after week since its launch in November. These remakes have remained in second position, yes, as you can see in the ranking available below, made up of Switch games only:
