Every Thursday we share the weekly Famitsu sales charts, which tracks physical boxed game sales and hardware sales in Japan. This week’s chart covers October 23 – 29, as Super Mario Bros. Wonder had a stellar second week. After last week’s Super Mario series best opening on Switch, the latest entry in the franchise sold a whopping 163,000 additional units this week, easily securing the top spot.

At second and third place comes Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 on Switch and PS5 respectively. Combined, the new Metal Gear Solid collections managed to sell over 33,000 copies.
