Ni no Kuni 2 Roland Secret

This past week in Japan saw the release of both Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom and Valkyria Chronicles 4 for the PlayStation 4, which each opened to okay sales, though neither could do enough to dethrone Kirby: Star Allies from swiping the top spot on the Japanese sales charts.

On the hardware front, it was the Nintendo Switch again taking the top spot, with everyone else lagging pretty far behind. The PlayStation 4 and Pro combined to move 23,856 units, which was over half of the Switch totals.
