Japanese chart figures are now in for 22nd - 28th October, showing that the Switch has seen a slight dip in performance thanks to a lack of major releases - just like in the UK charts. Despite this, the console is still home to 11 of the top 20 games this week.

The PS4 version of the new megahit Red Dead Redemption 2 managed to sell 132,984 copies at retail this week, shooting straight to the top of the charts as expected. Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection also finally arrived in Japan this week, generating 13,998 retail sales on PS4 and 7,443 retail sales on Switch.

Other notable entries this time around include Beyblade Burst: Battle Zero and Yomawari: The Long Night Collection, both of which launched this week. Their debut retail sales came in at 5,380 and 2,997 respectively.
