on March 15, 2017 9:29 AM

It’s Wednesday. And like every Wednesday before it: Media Create has released its weekly sales charts of the Japanese market. For the week starting March 6 2017 and ending March 12th, the top dog in regards to hardware is once again the Nintendo Switch, which launched back on March 3rd. Meanwhile, on the software front, Nintendo couldn’t manage to hold the top spot with The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, and rather got leapfrogged by Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, which released on March 7th.

All the new additions to this week’s top 20, include: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands (number 1) and Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix (number 2).
