We’ve got the latest sales figures from Japan for the week of February 21st to February 27th, and perhaps unsurprisingly FromSoftware’s Elden Ring has taken the top two spots with both the PS4 and PS5 versions, achieving a rather staggering 278,507 units sold across both formats.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus holds its own, however, coming in at number 3 with a respectable 60,754 units sold on Switch.
