While Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 did not sell gangbusters, it still managed to rank first in its PS4 version in a rather slow week in which a few new releases and re-releases did not show stellar performance.

Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum n’ Fun also kept selling fairly well, most probably helped by the fact that this was the first week of summer vacation, and a Taiko-themed titled on the Switch is definitely perfect for that.
