The weekly hardware and software sales from Japan are in, and although it was a fairly mundane week for software, a few new titles launched. Luigi's Mansion for Nintendo 3DS, which launched last month in most territories, finally made its Japanese debut. With 27,370 units sold, it's far from a smash hit... but it was still good enough to top the charts in a slow week. Tetris Effect and Deracine, the other two newcomers this week, each sold less than 5,000 copies.

Hardware sales failed to impress as well, with only Switch seeing a notable "holiday season" bump. Despite a lack of compelling new software for the week, Switch saw its sales jump from 43,747 to 54,235. However, PlayStation 4 saw a sales decline across both its standard and Pro models. You can check out the full breakdown below.
