The weekly Japanese charts from Famitsu have landed, and Splatoon 3 is still taking everyone to the cleaners. it’s another week where the multiplayer shooter has sold over 100k copies, which means the game has now sold 3 million copies — that doesn’t include physical sales, however. Geez.

However, NieR:Automata’s Switch port has sold a decent amount, making it the highest-charting new release. The action RPG from Square Enix and PlatinumGames, released on the PS4 back in 2017 initially, has sold 30,218 in the week of 3rd to 9th October.

Dragon Quest X has climbed up the charts a tiny bit this week with 21,908 units sold on Switch, while the only other newcomer — Hakuouki Shinkai: Tenun no Shou (part of the Hakuouki visual novel series) — debuts in 9th with 5,101 copies sold.
