Yo-kai Sangokushi and Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 kept on trucking with very little opposition, even if Far Cry Primal didn’t do badly for a western game, partly thanks to a very strong advertisement campaign.

Dark Souls III stops just above 250,000 copies sold on PS4 since its launch, while Star Ocean 5 is just shy of 125,000.

The real dark horse of the week is probably Quantum Break, that managed to enter the top 20 charts. In Japan this is a quite heroic deed for an Xbox One exclusive, in which many other games (including some that were advertised locally a lot more) failed.
