Sekiro Japan Sales

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has done very well in Japan, where it's managed to immediately top the software charts. The brutal action title sold a hefty 158,000 copies on PS4, a strong figure that suggests it's been a hit for developer From Software and publisher Activision. Well deserved, we'd argue.

Below that, the latest Super Robot Wars game entered in second place, moving 88,000 copies on Sony's system. Elsewhere, the new Atelier title jumped in at number five, and the PS4 version of Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy! dashed into sixth. All told, a solid week for PS4 software.

Hardware numbers are also holding steady for Sony. The PS4 appears to be on an upward trend right now, almost breaking 40,000 units.
