Yep, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still king during Golden Week

What a lovely day!

Round two of Japan game sales this week, this time covering the actual Golden Week. So what did people buy? Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. A lot of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. No new games were released during the holidays, so people bought more Mario Kart. Even Mario Kart 7 returned to the top 20.

The Nintendo Switch’s numbers leveled back down to 47,000, but Xbox One sales increased by 500% from the previous week, from 101 up to 677. We believe in you Xbox One!
