on April 26, 2017 9:26 AM

It’s April 26th, 2017, aka another Wednesday. And like every Wednesday, Media Create has released its weekly sales charts of the Japanese market. However, unlike the past five weeks, the software charts are no longer crowned by Monster Hunter XX (which slipped to 5th) but rather has been replaced by Intelligent Systems developed and Nintendo published 3DS game Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. Meanwhile on the hardware side, the charts are still topped by the Nintendo Switch: some things never change.

All the new additions to this week’s top 20, include: Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia (number 1), Pro Yakyuu Famista Climax (number 2) Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades Edition (number 3), PaRappa the Rapper Remastered (number 8), Minna de Waiwai! Spelunker (number 9), Dungeon Travelers 2-2 (number 4).
