After long waiting for fans, Shin Megami Tensei V finally landed on Nintendo Switch, and it seems that the new chapter of the JRPG series curated by Atlus was welcomed in the best way on the eastern market.
As new data released by Famitsu reveals, Shin Megami Tensei V has ranked first in the Japanese weekly ranking for software sales. This result is not surprising, given the expectations that fans had towards this new iteration of the saga roleplay. To close the podium we find another exclusive Nintendo Switch, Mario Party Superstars, together with Dragon Quest X Heroes of the Heavenly Stars Online, also fresh publication. Below is the top 10 of the best-selling games in Japan during the last week:

Nintendo Switch continues to dominate the scene with regard to hardware sales, with the three main hybrid console models that occupy the top three positions in the rankings:
Switch • 46,547 Switch OLED • 23,708 Switch Lite • 17,012 PS5 • 4.606 Xbox Series S • 2.243 PS4 • 1.399 New 2DS LL
Among next-gen consoles, PS5 is certainly the one that most easily meets the Japanese user favor, but also Xbox Series S seems to enjoy a pretty positive moment, considering also how Microsoft platforms do not have easy life in Japan. Interestingly, you are selling Series S significantly more than Series X, probably also due to the low availability of the high-end console. Overall, Xbox Series X Plus have already sold more in Japan than Xbox One has done throughout its life cycle.
