Dragon Quest Builders 2 sales

The latest Japanese charts are in, and the one new entry worth talking about is Dragon Quest Builders 2. Square Enix's sequel entered the software charts in fourth place with 110,000 copies, and the PlayStation 4 version of the game beat out the Switch version by around 13,000 copies. A respectable total, but the PS4 edition alone couldn't budge Nintendo's triple whammy of Smash Bros., Mario Party, and Pokemon.

On the hardware side of things, Sony's current-gen console maintained its momentum from the previous week, shifting a further 75,000 units across both the standard and Pro models. Now we'll have to wait and see how quickly these numbers drop.
