This week’s Japanese software sales are as follows:

Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training for Nintendo Switch launched for Switch in Japan on December 27. Through December 29, it sold around 35,000 copies in Japan. Dengeki reports a sell-through of only 20 percent.

The original Brain Age on DS sold 3.65 million copies in Japan and the sequel moved another 4.94 million units. It remains to be seen whether this new Switch entry will come even remotely close to those first couple of games, though it clearly has a long way to go as of now.
