The Japanese charts for the week of July 25-31 are up on Famitsu, and it’s a big week for RPGs and Switch.

The top two spots are occupied by two new releases this week. Monolith Soft’s Xenoblade Chronicles 3 takes the number one spot, selling a staggering 112,728 physical copies. There are really no surprises here, as the game is being reviewed incredibly well and was one of the most anticipated releases on Switch for this year.

Behind him with 28,536 units sold is Digimon Survive on Switch. The visual novel with strategy RPG elements has still sold a respectable amount, and we’re happy to see that it sits well alongside Nintendo’s great RPG series. Nintendo Switch Sports is right behind Digital Monsters after another solid week of sales.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak and Live A Live continue to perform well, with the latter dropping four places after topping the charts last week. And to round out the new entries, Idea Factory’s latest visual novel, Tengoku Struggle: Strayside, debuts in ninth place.

Here’s this week’s full top ten, which is dominated by Switch releases (save for a sneaky Gran Turismo 7):
