Media Crate sales figures in Japan for the second week following the Switch’s release have been unveiled by 4Gamer, and while several bestseller Switch games still remain high on the best-selling list, some have been bumped down a few pegs from where they were placed last week.

As it currently stands, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Switch lands at the number three spot with 44,483 sales this week– the decline most likely due to a few new releases for the PS4. The Wii U version of the game falls a couple places lower on the charts, sitting comfortably in the seventh spot. 1-2-Switch has nabbed number five, while Super Bomberman R remains on the list at number ten, along with a few other 3DS games sprinkled into the mix.
