I'd call that a very, very quiet week all round. Low hardware sales and a debut game sells less than 14,000 copies and still gets the number 1 spot. I'd like to see the expanded software sales chart later in the week. If Yoshi’s Crafted World is number 10 with sales of 4,000, you can just imagine what the rest of the chart is like.

Ugh... woah... poor Ys o-o
[EDIT] aaah... ok... It's a remaster. Remasters of niche games rarely sells in Japan.

The weeks after golden week but before Summer break starts (aka now) are some of the slowest sales weeks in Japan. We'll have some more slow weeks now, but things should pick up with Yokai Watch 4 and Mario Maker 2
