Elden Ring released in February is still in second place, strong
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is also very interesting and I’m relieved that the ranking is good

Although MultiVersus is F2P, it is the 1st place? ?
↑ Founder’s pack sales are good
The number of units sold is higher than the Switch! Even overseas!
Are you scared? yeah? Are you intimidated by the high-performance game console that is slowly approaching?
