Japanese Charts: Pikmin 3 Deluxe Takes Top Spot As Switch Sales Reach 13 Million

33

Famitsu’s Japanese chart figures are now in for 26th October – 1st November, revealing that Pikmin 3 Deluxe has debuted at the top of the pile.

The game sold an estimated 171,349 physical copies in its opening week which – according to Astris Advisory Japan founder, David Gibson – puts it ahead of the Wii U original for the region. Contrastingly, it was recently reported that in the UK, the Wii U original actually sold more physical copies than the Switch version in its first week.

Plenty of other new games also made it into the top ten this week, including the new Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster and Watch Dogs: Legion, although none of these could match Pikmin’s opening numbers.

Here are the top 10 (first numbers are this week’s estimated sales, followed by total sales):


  1. [NSW] Pikmin 3 Deluxe (Nintendo, 10/30/20) – 171,349 (New)
