Xbox's 'Top Paid Games' Chart Looks Very Different In Japan Right Now

As you know, we often like to take a look at the "Top Paid" Xbox charts and see which games are selling particularly well on the Xbox Store, but it's very rare that we look beyond the likes of the UK and US stores.

Today, we've taken a peek over at the Japan store, and it's shaping up very differently! In fact, the top 3 games provide the most interesting differences here, with the new release of Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord taking the top spot, closely followed by the brilliant Unicorn Overlord and music-puzzle game PuzzMiX.

We'll throw the top 10 below - keep in mind this is based on games that have been selling particularly well on the Xbox Store in recent days. Some, such as Dying Light, remain high in the list as they've only just gone off sale.

  1. Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord
  2. Unicorn Overlord
  3. PuzzMiX
  4. Dying Light
  5. Minecraft
  6. Survive on Raft
  7. Persona 4 Golden
  8. EA Sports FC 24
  9. Minecraft: Deluxe Collection
  10. Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

Look a little further beyond the top 10, and the likes of Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters, Irem Collection Volume 1, Pocky & Rocky Reshrined, Glorious Savior and Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom are all within the top 25.

It's definitely a unique lineup of titles, and there are plenty here that we haven't had any experience with! That includes Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord, which is a 3D remake of a 1981 RPG from the Apple II days.
