Yo-Kai Watch

Yo-Kai Watch 4 finally reached stores in Japan and got another first place for Level-5.

The exclusive Nintendo Switch was able to sell more than 150,000 units, but it still figures as one of the worst debuts in the series – only the first Yo-Kai Watch managed to sell less (52,901 units in the debut).

Far from the values ​​of the two versions of Yo-Kai Watch 2 (they sold more than 1 million units in the debut in 2014) and even of the values ​​of Yo-Kai Watch 3 (sold more than 600,000 units in the premiere), Yo-Kai Watch 4 still managed to be the best-selling game.

Yakuza 5 for PS4 was a distant second in a table dominated by Nintendo’s evergreen:
