CHARTS: Palworld holds Granblue Fantasy from Steam No.1 spot

Pocket monster romp Palworld was once again the biggest-selling title on Steam last week.

The title launched into Early Access back on January 19th and at last official count had shifted 12 million copies on Steam and attracted seven million players on Xbox.

Pocketpair continued success means that Cygames' Granblue Fantasy: Relink had to settle for second place in its first week on sale. The long-in-development JRPG finally made it into the wild on February 1st having been announced back in 2016.

Granblue Fantasy wasn't the only cult JRPG making its debut on Steam last week; Persona 3 Reload, the re-release of the 2006 smash hit, was released on February 2nd to generally positive critical reception. It's the latest of Atlus' Persona series to come to Steam following in the footsteps of Persona 4 Golden's gangbuster's launch.

Valve's Counter-Strike 2 dropped one place from fourth to fifth, while the company's Steam Deck hardware also fell one rung down the ladder to No.6. Following its strong launch week, Tekken 8 slid down from third place to seventh week-on-week.

NetEase's Naraka: Bladepoint returned to the Top Ten in eighth place, coming in ahead of fellow battle royale title PUBG: Battlegrounds, which dropped one position to ninth week-on-week.

Rounding off the Top Ten is Warner Bros' newly released Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which made its debut at No.10.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending February 6th:

1. Palworld, Pocketpair
2. Granblue Fantasy: Relink, Cygames
3. Persona 3 Reload, Atlus
4. Enshrouded, Keen Games
