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

For the week between May 29th and June 4th, we have yet another new top-dog on the software charts. As you may know, last week, Mario Kart Deluxe was finally dethroned after being king for three straight weeks by Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana. But the glory was short-lived for Ys VIII, as this week the charts belong to the newly released Tekken 7 from Bandai Namco.

Meanwhile, on the hardware front, the Nintendo Switch continues to dominate: ranking in at number one, a position it has held every week since its launch back in early March.

All the new additions to this week’s top 20, include: Tekken 7 (No.1), Tsukitomo. Tsukiuta 12 Memories (No.4),  Shiin (No.8), and Seiken Densetsu Collection (No.2).

Below, you can view the full software chart:
