Maybe they didn’t like the cringe-inducing Cayde-6

It’s always interesting to see how western shooters fare in Japan. Destiny 2tops the charts in it’s opening week, but it does so with just 50,263 sales. That’s only about 5,000 more than second-place Splatoon 2,which is nearly two months old now.

Also new are the Switch port of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2and that KonoSubagame whose full title with threaten the character limit of this form. I was happy to see 2016’s best game, Hitman: The Complete First Season, crack the top 20.
