New Pokemon Snap debuts first in the Japanese charts

New Pokémon Snap for Nintendo Switch debuted first in the Japanese charts of Famitsu (26/04 - 09/05/2021), which finally see a game for PS5 appear in the top 10: Resident Evil Village, which conquered the sixth position with 38,713 copies sold.

Nintendo's hybrid console always dominates, taking seven out of ten positions, but at least we are not faced with the usual one-color. In second position we find Monster Hunter Rise, while in third always Resident Evil Village, but for PS4. Another non-Switch title in the ranking is NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 ... for PS4, dropped to seventh position.

On the hardware front, Nintendo Switch continues to dominate, with more than 235,000 consoles sold between standard and Lite edition , but PS5 doesn't do badly with more than 50,000 disc and digital-only editions. The Xbox Series also saw growth over the past few months, managing to sell more than 1,200 consoles in total. It's not a lot, but we're in Japan.
