Fighting game rereleases top the charts in Japan

Ys on top

As we limp into summer, a couple of fighting game updates released with relative success in Japan last week. Although sales across the board are lower at this time of year, Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers and Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2 were top five sellers with over 10,000 copies sold in the first week. Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana raked in 27,000 at number one. Previous Ys games debuted with over 40,000 in their first weeks, but released later in the year.

NieR: Automata keep chugging along, and for whatever sad reason people are still purchasing 1-2-Switch.
