The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was a strong week for Nintendo. The Nintendo Switch version of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze debuted atop the charts, selling over 88,000 copies. This marks a drastic improvement over the game's Wii U debut in Japan, which saw it pull in around 35,000 sales.

Tropical Freeze was the only new (ish) title to launch this past week, so it had little competition for the top spot. The Labo Variety Kit package took third place in its third week, moving another 32,244 units. Quite a few other Nintendo titles saw sales boosts this week, likely due to the fact that it's Golden Week in Japan.

In hardware, Nintendo Switch was king with 53,113 units sold. PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro combined for second place with just under 35,000 units sold. You can check out the full list of sales below.
