The Japanese sales chart for the week has been released, and while God of War might have dropped off, a few new titles have joined the ranks. This time around, Fate/Extella Link and Dark Souls Remastered both sell well enough to take up three of the top five spots, respectively. Detroit: Become Human also jumped into the fifth slot, which means for the first time in a while, a majority of the top five are PlayStation 4 titles. Elsewhere on the charts, Little Nightmares continues to hold onto a spot in the top 20, with not many other well-known PlayStation 4 titles making their way to the top sellers.

Thanks to a variety of new titles coming out, we have our first batch of new entries to the list in about a month or so. According to Media Create, here are the 20 best-selling retail games (new releases are bolded), along with how each system sold in Japan from June 4 to June 10, 2018:
