Famitsu has released the weekly sales ranking for Video Games sold in Japan for the third week of September. The list is available here. This week sees Monster Hunter World’s latest iteration, Iceborn retaining the number 1 spot while a number of new faces have made their marks in this week’s Top 10 list. This includes Konami’s PES 2020, 2K Games’ Borderlands 3 and MARVELOUS!’s DAEMON x MACHINA sitting in from number 2 to 4. Apart from that, we see improvement in the number of team blue’s placement in the top rankings, but this is not enough from overthrowing Nintendo’s dominance in the overall rankings.
