Three weeks on top in Japan for Yo-Kai Watch

New Yo-Kai Watch title Sangokushi has claimed its third No.1 in the Japanese charts according to data from Famitsu.

Sales of the 3DS title fell by 64 per cent week-on-week, a slightly higher drop than the 57 per cent the week before.

In second place is Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 again, with sales dropping 52 per cent over last week. That's ahead of Far Cry Primal, which holds third place. Ubisoft's title debuted in the same position last week.

At No.6 is new title, Larian's Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition, which is released courtesy of Japanese firm Spike Chunsoft. That title debuts ahead of Nintendo's Splatoon at No.7.
