It’s been 33 years since a single console swept the list.

Nobody can deny that Nintendo’s Switch has been a smashing success. As of this writing, consumers had purchased 89 million units, and with an improved OLED Switch set to hit stores in October, sales don’t appear to be decreasing anytime soon.

Game Data Library noticed that the Nintendo Switch swept Famitsu’s Top 30 Best Selling Console Games list for the week of August 8. Every title listed belonged to the Switch. The hybrid handheld is undoubtedly popular in Japan, but PlayStation and Xbox lineups usually pepper the list as well.

The last time a single console took every slot in Famitsu’s top 30 was in 1988, when the Nintendo Entertainment System was dominant. There were also several occasions thoughout the 1990s where Nintendo swept the list, but it was with multiple consoles.

Minecraft (14,912), Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD (13,873), Crayon Shin-Chan: Ora to Hakase no Natsuyasumi – Owaranai Nanokakan no Tabi (13,798), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (13,615), and RingFit Adventure (13,615) are the top five games and their sales for the week (12,282). The majority of the games are exclusive to Nintendo, but a few third-party brands, such as Monster Hunter and Dragon Quest, made the cut.

Despite the fact that the Switch is not a direct competitor to next-generation consoles, it appears to be performing rather well against them, particularly in its home nation. It will be fascinating to see if the slightly improved OLED Switch contributes to the handheld’s sustained rapid growth.
