  1. Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom
  2. Valkyria Chronicles 4
  3. Undertale
  4. Battlefield 1 Revolution
  5. Monster Hunter World
  6. Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remaster

  18. Star Ocean 3 ‘Til the End of Time – Director’s Cut
  19. Simple Series G4U Vol.1 The Mahjong
  20. How to Survive – Zombie Island 2

As you can see from the chart, Ni No Kuni II managed to beat Valkyria Chronicles 4 to the top. This is an upset of what happened at retail, where it was the latest chapter of Valkyria Chronicles that came up on top, even if it was still beaten by Kirby Star Allies.

Another interesting element is that Attack on Titan 2 by Koei Tecmo literally collapsed to the second half of the chart after managing to get first place last week.

This kind of radical drop is actually rather rare in the digital marketplace. It’s easier for it to happen at retail due to low shipments on the second week, but there are no stock limits digitally, so the reason for such fall in performance remains mysterious.

Monster Hunter World slides in fifth place after its massive success during the first month and a half, overtaken by two titles that were pushed by discounts.
