Famitsu: Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance Scores #1, Monster Hunter Debuts

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 10 – 16, as Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance takes the top spot with its Nintendo Switch debut, thanks to just under 32,000 copies sold. It also scores #2 with its PS5 release and #7 with its PS4 release, selling over 55,000 units across its available platforms.

This is a great start for the new enhanced version of 2021’s Shin Megami Tensei V, as both its Switch and PS5 release managed to sell more than the other big debut this week, which is Monster Hunter Stories. The Switch port of the 3DS title opened at #4, thanks to just over 10,000 copies sold. A final new release manages to just make its way onto the chart too, as Snufkin: Melody of Moominvalley breaks into the top 10 in last place thanks to over 3,000 sales.
