This week’s Japanese charts are in from Famitsu (via Gematsu) and things are looking rather PlayStation-heavy compared to what we are used to seeing.

It’s the new releases that are dominating the competition this time around. Persona 3 Reload‘s PS5 version tops the charts with 76,368 copies sold, while its PS4 counterpart takes the bronze. Another PS5 title, Granblue Fantasy: Relink slots into the podium line-up, leaving the only Switch newbie, Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash to take bronze with 25,242 sales in its opening week.

In fact, only four of the top ten this week come from the Switch, with the PlayStation’s Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth even beating the likes of Super Mario Bros. Wonder.
