Japanese Sales Chart: Far Cry 5 Continues to Sell Well After Launch

Far Cry 5 continues to impress after its launch, as it has once again taken one of the top spots of the Japanese sales chart for this week. The recently released Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom also had a good week, as it did just enough to keep itself wedged firmly into the top 10 best-selling games of the week. As far as hardware goes, the PlayStation 4 was once again one of the two highest selling consoles, with the PlayStation 4 Pro also outselling most of the other competition and slotting into the top five overall.

In a surprising twist, absolutely no new titles did well enough to make it into the top 20, so all of the games on the list have already been out for at least a week.
