Yakuza: Like A Dragon Tops Famitsu Sales Chart

When it comes to Famitsu and its recent charts, the dominant beast that usually comes out on top every week, Pokémon Sword and Shield, sits at the number three spot. However, it looks like there’s a new leader this time spanning from January 13th to January 19th, 2020.

The crown victor during said time frame is Sega’s Yakuza: Like A Dragon, a title that happens to beat out some big names.

Thanks to website nintendoeverything.com, folks into numbers, physical sales, and estimations will find that the controversial and dominant game Pokémon Sword and Shield has taken a seat… for now.

Taking second place is Bandai Namco’s latest retelling of Dragon Ball Z, which happens to go by the name of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and following that is Yakuza: Like a Dragon.

You can check out the full list right here, where the platform appears first (in brackets), and after that is the working title, current sales, and lifetime accumulative sales — the N/A stands for “not available” due to a game being new:
