Japan Top Weekly Video Game Ranking: August 3, 2020 to August 16, 2020

First off, Famitsu has published a two-week period of the hardware and software sold in Japan between August 3 to August 16. Therefore, in this post, there will be no week-to-week percentage difference for sales of hardware. I will be making separate posts for August 3 to August 9 and August 10 to August 16 for sales of video games, they will include the week-to-week comparison.

Besides, it is thanks to the amazing folks over at Famitsu that we get to see these charts on a weekly basis, so please be sure to head over to their site here and show them lots of love!

Although it is hard to tell the performance this time around for sales of hardware in Japan, Switch has certainly climbed quite significantly in the span of two weeks. For instance, from July 27, 2020 to August 2, 2020 it sold 66,512 units for the Standard Edition while the Lite Edition sold 20,093 units. For the two-week period, it sold almost 4 times the amount. You can find the data compiled by Famitsu here.

Animal Crossing sold a good 214,070 copies within the two-week period bringing the lifetime sales to more than 5.5 million copies sold in Japan. Ring Fit Adventure is 2nd while Ghost of Tsushima is 3rd, the title crossed the 300,000 copies sold mark during the two-week period. The strong drive in sales may be due to the Obon holiday period.
