Yokai

Famitsu's Japanese chart figures are now in for 17th - 23rd June, revealing that Yo-Kai Watch 4 has jumped straight to number one in its first week on sale.

The game sold an estimated 150,721 copies during its opening week, easily fending off second place title Yakuza 5 - which also released as a new title this week. The number one comes despite the fact that Yo-Kai Watch 4 has seen relatively disappointing sales compared to past titles in the series; Yo-Kai Watch Busters 2 sold 216,032 copies in its first week in 2017, and Yo-Kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki managed an impressive 333,240 sales when it first launched in 2016.

Aside from Yakuza 5, the top ten is once again littered with familiar titles on Nintendo Switch.
