It’s time to take another look at Japanese physical cards thanks to Famitsu and, unsurprisingly, Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD scared away all other options in its first week.

Nintendo’s latest remaster tops the charts with 88,425 copies sold. Its predecessor, Luigi’s Mansion 3, also returns to the top 10, ranking seventh with 4,438 additional sales last week.

Elsewhere, Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe continue to show their longevity by stopping last week’s champion, Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree Editionto secure a spot on the podium. And after a strong start, Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance has completely dropped out of the top 10.

Here’s a full look at this week’s top 10:
