Famitsu Has Revealed Japan’s Top 100 Best-Selling Games of 2018 so Far

Japanese video game database website Game Data Library has published the list of Japan’s top 100 best-selling games of the year thus far. The data originally comes from a report by the Japanese video game magazine Famitsu.

It’s good news for Nintendo as the top 10 contains seven Switch exclusives. Several games from 2017 are still selling very well; Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Splatoon 2 are all still hanging on in the top 10. However, topping the list is Capcom’s Monster Hunter World for PS4, which has amassed close to 2 million sales in Japan alone. In terms of year to date sales, Monster Hunter World beats out second place, Splatoon 2, more than three times over.

Here is the full list:
