Legends Pokemon: Arceus is still leading sales lists in Japan

The Magazine Famitsu has published the list with the best-selling video games in Japan during the week from February 7 to 13.

As expected, Legends Pokémon: Arceus repeats one more week in the first place on the list, adding another 140,000 copies and approaching the two million sold in the Japanese country since its launch.

And also predictably, the Top Ten is practically occupied in its integrity with titles for Nintendo Switch, except for a Dying Light 2: Stay Human for PlayStation 4 that occupies the fifth position. The only novelty on the list is My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! – Pirates That Stir the Waters, in the tenth position.

Below are the list with the ten best-selling video games in Japan between 7 and 13 February:
