Yo-kai Watch 4 finally made its debut in Japan last week. Between June 20 and June 23, the game sold about 150,000 copies. Dengeki now reports that it had a sell-through rate of roughly 60%.

You may recall that Yo-kai Watch started off slowly, but the series’ second entry is where the franchise really started to take off. The games, anime, and toys were all in sync and resulted in a big popularity boost.

New data is in from the UK regarding a pair of prominent Switch games.

First up, Super Mario Maker 2 is the biggest Nintendo launch of the year having surpassed New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. It was also the top seller in the UK last week.

Switch is really the first time that Koei Tecmo and Gust’s Atelier series has been prominent on a Nintendo console. Atelier Lydie & Suelle got things started, followed by the Atelier Arland trilogy, Atelier Lulua, and the upcoming Atelier Ryza. Despite the franchise not really being associated with Nintendo platforms until this generation, the IP seems to be gaining some traction on Switch.

In an interview with GamesBeat, Gust’s associate head of development Keisuke Kikuchi said that Switch sales are “catching up with the PS4 version due to constant growth”. However, Steam “dominates sales” in Asia. Japan is where Atelier sells the most on the whole. Kikuchi also mentioned in the interview that the console versions of Atelier “have almost had the same performance throughout the years, but the best-selling title overall would definitely be Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book.”

The latest issue of Famitsu has shared a listing of the top 30 best-selling games in Japan for the month of May 2019. You can check out the full results below.
