Super Mario Maker 2 was the best-selling game of the week in Japan according to Famitsu data.

It is the seventh week that the Switch title is at the top. Of course, the sum of the two versions of the Action-RPG Oninaki (in second and third place for PS4 and Switch respectively) would have unseated him.

After the huge hardware sales of last week, this week there was a general drop from all platforms. The winner is, once again, Nintendo Switch.

These were the top 10 best-selling games in Japan between August 19 and August 25, with cumulative sales in parentheses and the previous position in brackets:
