It’s that time, once again, for the Japanese Media Create charts. They make for some interesting reading this week, with the release of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 being of particular interest.

Monolith Soft’s title had a pretty decent launch on Switch, securing second place behind Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon as the best-selling new release. Its sales of 97,972 units surpass the equivalent launch figuresof Xenoblade Chronicles X and even the Wii original; that’s a positive early result for the JRPG.

Beyond that it’s an all-Nintendo top five, with Kirby Battle Royale making its debut in 5th place. Going further down we see Attack on Titan 2: Future Coordinates for 3DS in 12th place, while Resident Evil Revelations Collection only managed 6,540 sales in 14th. Another new entry on Switch is Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi down in 17th spot. The top 20 is below with lifetime sales in brackets.
