Famitsu’s Japanese chart figures are now in for 16th – 22nd November, revealing that Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity couldn’t manage to claim number one on its debut week.

The game sold an estimated 173,215 physical copies in its opening week, which would usually be more than enough to claim top spot. Another newcomer absolutely smashed Age of Calamity’s total, however; Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban! takes this week’s number one with 345,697 sales.

Momotaro Dentetsu is a board game-style series from Konami which has players becoming the president of a railroad company. In this latest title, your goal is to acquire properties across Japan with the goal of having the highest total assets in the country.

Here are the top 10 (first numbers are this week’s estimated sales, followed by total sales):
