Due to a lack of notable new releases last week, Monster Hunter XX for 3DS was able to take place first place once again, moving 65,700 copies and bringing its lifetime total to over 1.3 million. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch, meanwhile, rose from 5th to 2nd, selling 23,000 copies.

LEGO Worlds for PlayStation 4 debuted in 5th with 11,600 copies sold, but it wasn’t enough to help PS4 console sales, which fell by 7,000 week-on-week. PS4 Pro sales, however, were up by more than 1,400.
