Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Sales

Once again there’s a new release on top of the Japanese sales chart, but it’s not a PlayStation title. Impressively, Nintendo held the top two spots with Switch games, with the debuting Pokken Tournament DX in first place. One of the most anticipated PS4 releases had a disappointing sales debut as Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite only sold slightly over 8,000 copies to come in number eight.

As far as hardware goes, the Nintendo Switch once again managed to top the charts by a wide margin. It outsold the second best selling console (the PlayStation 4) by over 20,000 units.

There were several new PS4 releases on this week’s chart. NBA 2K18 managed to secure the number four spot by selling over 14,000 copies. Meanwhile, Project CARS 2 came in 11 with over 7,000 units moved.

According to Media Create, here’s the 20 best-selling retail games (new releases are bolded), along with how each system sold in Japan from September 18 to September 24, 2017:
