Japanese Charts: Famicom Detective Club Earns Top Ten Debut In Another Strong Week For Switch


Famicom Detective Club

Famitsu’s Japanese chart figures are now in for the week ending 16th May, revealing that Monster Hunter Rise is this week’s best-selling Switch title.

The game has managed to maintain its second-place finish this week while its nearest competitors see a slight shuffle; New Pokémon Snap drops to third as sales begin to slow down, and the PS4 version of Resident Evil Village climbs right up into first spot.

Elsewhere, Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind + The Missing Heir (which got a physical, double-pack release in Japan) has managed to debut in sixth place with an estimated 12,269 physical sales. Of course, the two games will have sold further units individually on the eShop, too.

Here are the top ten (first numbers are this week’s estimated sales, followed by total sales):
