Famitsu: Elden Ring Takes #1 After Shadow Of The Erdtree DLC Release

Every Thursday we share the weekly Famitsu sales charts, which tracks physical boxed game sales and hardware sales in Japan. This week’s chart covers June 17 – 23, as the release of the Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree DLC boosted a bundled version of the game to the top spot. The Shadow of the Erdtree Edition of Elden Ring on PS5 sold a little over 24,000 units, bringing the game back to the top spot after its original release in February 2022. The PS4 version of the game also charted, placing at #4 thanks to 7,000 bundled copies sold.

There are two more debuts this week. First is 1998’s Radiant Silvergun getting a physical Switch run that sold enough to score #7 on the chart thanks to over 5,000 sales, which is followed by the final debut, the Psychic Horror ADV Series Complete Collection, selling over 3,000 units and claiming last place at #10.
