Japan Top Weekly Video Game Ranking: September 16, 2019 ~ September 22, 2019

 

Famitsu has released the weekly sales ranking for video games sold in Japan for the 3rd week of September accessible via their website here. The remake of the 1993 Zelda game takes the top spot this week with a total sales of 141,375 copies though, not enough to beat Monster Hunter’s sales for the first week of September (206,156 copies sold). Nevertheless, quite an impressive figure. Things does not bode well though for PlatinumGames’ ASTRAL CHAIN as they are slowly being pushed out of the top 30 list. The full list is as below:
