There has been a lot of doubt whether Nintendo Labo will be a success, and some of that doubt can be put to rest now that the “game” has launched at the number 1 spot in Japan.

That’s right, Nintendo Labo sold over 90,000 units in Japan, outselling every other game that week. And that’s despite launching later in the week.

On the console side, the Switch is once again the best selling console, and once again, it sold more units than all other consoles combined.

Here are the full Japanese hardware and software sales charts for last week:

  1. Switch – 34,165
  2. PS4 Pro – 8,967
