Japan Top Weekly Video Game Ranking: September 30, 2019 ~ October 6, 2019

Famitsu has finally graced us with the latest top weekly sales of video games in Japan available through their website here. Sales are a little lackluster this week – not sure if this is the result of the tax hike the Japanese government has imposed – with only 2 new games making into the list. Tom Clancy’s online tactical shooter game sits at number 2 this week and Super Robot Wars V’s Nintendo Switch release sits humbly at number 18 while Dragon Quest XI S retains its number 1 spot. The list also sees Code Vein dropping 3 spot from last week’s 2 with the biggest fall belongs to Atelier Ryza plunging 10 spots to number 13. The Switch version of the game sits in at number 26.
