Wow, everyone really does love golf in Japan

Sun and Moon finally leave the top 20

The newest game is also the hottest one here in Japan land; Everybody’s Golf (no longer localized as Hot Shots Golf) sold over 100,000 copies in its debut week in Japan, nearly doubling the second place Splatoon 2. Surprisingly not on the list was Pokémon Sun & Moon, which finally appears to be losing some steam, or rather receding before the tsunami of Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon.

Nintendo Switch is back on top for the second week in a row after falling out of the first place for the first time, selling over 50,000 units. Once I get my job rolling and it’ll be high time I pick up one myself for Mario Odyssey.
