The weekly hardware and software numbers from Japan are in, and although the industry as a whole posted unimpressive numbers, it was a solid week for Nintendo. That's due almost entirely to the success for Super Mario Party on Nintendo Switch. The latest entry in the popular party series is the highest rated in 20 years, and that's translating into strong sales figures.

Super Mario Party sold 142,868 physical copies in just its first two days on the market in Japan, easily beating out Assassin's Creed Odyssey (45,166) for the top spot. By comparison, Mario Party 10 debuted at number five with just 50,212 sales. Switch hardware sales saw a slight boost over last week's numbers, improving by around 3,000 units sold. You can catch the full breakdown below.
