Last week in Japan, it was raining iron and an assortment of alien parts with the release of Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain, Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit, and Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for Switch. Here’s a look at how they performed in their opening week according to Famitsu’s sales tracker.
At #1 we have Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain with 55,563 units sold on PS4.
