Because there weren’t any big new releases last week (Deus Ex: Mankind Divided opened outside the top 20), Monster Hunter XX for Nintendo 3DS was easily able to repeat at #1, selling another 280,000 copies. The top two PlayStation 4 games last week in Japan were Ghost Recon Wildlands and Horizon Zero Dawn, which placed in 4th and 5th overall.

Over in hardware, Nintendo Switch sales were up more than 28,000 week-on-week, giving it another first place finish.
