Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 may have been jumped by Luigi's Mansion, but the new Nintendo 3DS release wasn't able to top it by much. Treyarch's shooter remains a relatively strong seller in Japan, now weeks out from its launch. It shifted a further 26,000 copies on PlayStation 4, with total retail sales reaching a very impressive 444,000 copies. Safe to say that it's been a hit.

Similarly, Red Dead Redemption 2 also continues its strong run in the software charts. While not quite keeping pace with Black Ops 4, Rockstar's open world adventure is still doing well for itself, moving an additional 17,000 copies. It's now sitting at a respectable 184,000 total copies.

Unfortunately, newcomers Tetris Effect and Deracine both struggled at Japanese retail, neither of them able to break even 5000 copies.

Hardware numbers also continue to fall for Sony, with the PS4 and PS4 Pro doing around 8000 units each. This is honestly looking like the console's new standard in Japan, as previous weeks have proven that even big new releases aren't enough to bolster the numbers.
