Available via the Epic Games Store on PC, join Rindo and his friends in a journey to survive the Reapers' Game in the Shibuya UG.

Meanwhile, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin debuts in third place, already having sold thrice as much as its predecessor did in its lifetime.
Meanwhile, Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: The Official Video Game sees a 43 percent increase in sales, rising from eighth to third place.
