Today, Media Create released its weekly sales chart of the Japanese video game market.

For the week between June 5th and June 11th a familiar face has returned to the top of the software chart: Nintendo’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which has returned for its fourth week as the big ravioli. Meanwhile, last week’s No.1, Tekken 7, slips slightly to No.2.

As for the hardware charts: it’s once again Nintendo Switch at the top, an honor it has held since its launch in early March and will likely hold for months to come.

All the new additions to this week’s top 20, include: Shiro to Kuro no Alice (No.8).
