It's still a down season in Japan as we progress out of the post-Golden Week slump into summer. Overall software and hardware sales remained on par with the low numbers last week while little changed: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Monster Hunter XX sip tea from their thrones while the Nintendo Switch pumped out another 25,000 units.
