Famitsu: Pikmin 4 Reigns, As Pokémon Scarlet And Violet Rise

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 September 11 – 17, as Pikmin 4 once again holds the top spot on the charts. The reign of Pikmin 4 has been extraordinarily impressive, even keeping #1 this week after three new chart debuts from Super Bomberman R 2Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster and One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 Deluxe Edition.

This week’s chart also sees Pokémon Scarlet and Violet floating up the chart a little more, securing their place in the top three for the first time in a while since the gigantic launch period the games had. This is likely due to the recent release of The Teal Mask DLC expansion.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet returns to the top three of the Famitsu charts following the release of the first DLC.
