While the Switch version of Level-5’s The Snack World didn’t exactly pull stellar numbers, it still managed to top the chart, while Kirby Star Allies keeps soldiering on and passed 400,000 copies sold at retail.

Another milestone was achieved by Monster Hunter World, which passed two million copies sold at retail in the country.

Compile Heart’s JRPG Death end Re;Quest didn’t exactly perform in a stellar way but considering that it’s a niche new IP launching in a rather slow week, it didn’t do terribly either.

Far Cry 5 also keeps doing pretty well for a western title launched three weeks ago.
