Snack World makes strong debut in Japan

Somehow lots of people still find Switches

Hitman: The Complete First Season finally makes its way to Japanese shows, but along with Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 is shown up by Level-5’s The Snack World: Trejarers. Level-5’s newest multimedia franchise topped even the PS4 version of Dragon Quest XI, if only for this week.

It’s not quite the new Yo-kai Watch for Level-5, but The Snack World made a strong showing to go along with the mobile release back in April as well as its anime. It looks cute, but something about it isn’t quite pulling me in yet; I think the Japanese love their food a bit more than me.
