Resident Evil 7 claims second No.1 in Japan

Capcom's new Resident Evil title is once again No.1 in Japan according to market data from Famitsu.

The game saw a 82 per cent decline in sale in its second week on shelves, with 42,165 units shifted. The horror title still charted ahead of Pokmon Sun and Moon, which sold a combined 20,902 units. That's a ten per cent dip in sales week-on-week.

Yo-Kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki charted at No.3, with 13,223 copies sold. Despite an 18.5 per cent sales decline, the ghost catching title rose three places in the ranks last week.

Last week's No.3, Poochy and Yoshi's Woolly World dropped one place to No.4 with sales dipping 40 per cent.

There were two new games in the charts last week. Bandai Namco's Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 - Road to Boruto debuted at No.7, while No.8 was taken by the boxed version of BoxBoy Hakozume.
