Like at retailThe Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III beat FIFA 18 to the top spot. You may say “duh, it’s a JRPG, of course it beat a western football game,” but quite a few installments of the FIFA series have been very popular in Japan, so it wasn’t that obvious.

Final Fantasy IX holds strong in third place, after a debut week at the top. Interestingly Titanfall 2 also overtook Destiny 2, and NieR: Automata keeps on trucking.

While Dragon Qiest XI is gone from the top-twenty for the second week in a row, older iteration of the series still hold, including Dragon Quest X: All in One Package, which pokes back into the list after a brief absence.
