Sony has released a list of their most-bought games on PSN for the month of January 2018. There were two huge releases last month, and sure enough, they topped the US chart.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is a fighting game with a ton of momentum behind it. The action-packed, 3v3 title from Arc System Works pits fan-favorites from the series against each other in exciting over-the-top battles.

Needless to say, the game is popular. In fact, Dragon Ball FighterZ landed as the second highest-selling game on the PlayStation Store, GameSpot reports.

The only game to beat it was Capcom's mainstay action RPG, Monster Hunter World.

Critics also took a liking to the fighting game, with several large gaming publications giving DBFZ a 9/10 rating.
