Japanese sales charts dominated by ports and re-releases, RE7 still going strong

Little change from previous week

In the week prior to the launch of Nioh, new releases Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto and BoxBoy! Stuffed Box enter the top ten while the usual suspects Resident Evil 7 and Pokémon Sun & Moon retain the top spots. While technically new releases, Road to Boruto is an expansion of Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 and Stuffed Box is not my e-mail inbox but rather a compilation of the three BoxBoy games in one.

Those two titles join Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World, Super Mario Maker for 3DS, and Yo-kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki as games re-released in some fashion, making up half of the top ten. If you consider the 4990 version of Grand Theft Auto V, that makes a majority.
