Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia storms Japan

New releases litter the top

A quartet of new titles have finally topped Monster Hunter XX in Japan, with Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia leading the charge. Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades Edition, including all the DLC, joins a new Pro Yakyuu and Dungeon Travelers 2-2 after Fire Emblem. 

Also new this week were PaRappa the Rapper Remastered and Minna de Waiwai! Spleunker, edging into the top 10. Console sales remain relatively unchanged,  as the Switch keeps pounding away with another 48k.
