Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Remake Tops Japanese Charts Again

paper mario the thousand-year door

When it launched a couple of weeks ago, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door’s Switch remake topped Japanese sales charts on debut with over 115,000 physical units sold in the region upon release, and a couple weeks later, it still remains in pole position. As per newly released weekly sales data by Famitsu, the remake has topped Japanese charts for a third week running, having sold an additional 19,000-plus units over the course of last week.

Interestingly enough, every single game in the top 10 is a Switch title, which, of course, has often been the case in the Japanese weekly charts over recent years in particular. Of those ten games, in fact, the only game to not have been developed and published by Nintendo is the Microsoft-published Minecraft, which sits in fourth place with over 4,000 units sold.

On the hardware front, meanwhile, the Nintendo Switch was, as it usually is, the best-selling console in Japan last week. It moved over 53,000 units, and was followed in second place by the PS5, which trails by quite a healthy margin, having sold over 21,000 units.
