Japanese Sales Charts: The Division Puts a Bullet in the Competition on PS4

Critical hit

Tom Clancy's The Division has started life impressively well in Japan, topping the software charts on PlayStation 4. Ubisoft's role-playing shooter hybrid sold through a very healthy 80,703 copies, which was more than enough to place it above the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. Elsewhere, the new Summon Night game...

Japanese Sales Charts: Gundam Breaks into the Top Spot as PS4 and Vita Lead the Way

Meching up the numbers

Ah, nothing like a good Gundam game to shake up the Japanese hardware and software charts, eh? Gundam Breaker 3 blasted into first and second place on PlayStation 4 and Vita respectively, selling through a reasonably impressive 141,219 copies in total - now we just need to hope that the mech-'em-up has found enough success...

Japanese Sales Charts: Street Fighter V Falls Short on PS4

Not quite a knockout

We're afraid that it's yet more disappointing news for Street Fighter V, as its opening Japanese sales figures are in. We already know that the brawler hasn't done especially well here in the UK, and it turns out that it hasn't quite set Japan alight, either. Capcom's latest sold through 41,990 copies on PlayStation 4, which...

Metal Gear Solid, Knack Are Japan's Best Selling PS4 Games

Cerny you saw this coming?

The PlayStation 4 is nearing its second birthday in Japan, and while it hasn't got off to a flying start, it's still managed to accrue an install base nearing 2.5 million units. But with the Eastern market waiting patiently for Final Fantasy XV and Dragon Quest XI, what's been the console's biggest software drivers so...

Japanese Sales Charts: Valkyria Chronicles Remastered Rolls into the Charts on PS4

Tanks very much

Last week was pretty quiet for new releases in the Land of the Rising Sun, with the likes of Dragon Quest Builders and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 still hanging around in the software top ten. There was one new PlayStation entry worthy of note, however: Valkyria Chronicles Remastered. The remastered edition of the PS3...

PlayStation Vita Scores New Budget Bundle in Japan

Portable powerhouse

The format's very slowly starting to fade here in Western territories, but in Japan, the PlayStation Vita remains an extremely popular platform. Sony's hoping to capitalise on that with a new budget Starter Kit bundle, which is set to roll out in the company's home nation from 3rd March. Initially, it'll only be available in...

Japanese Sales Charts: Dragon Quest Builders Demolishes the Competition on PS4, Vita

Dragon Quest does it again

We've always known that Dragon Quest Builders would be a huge deal in its native Japan. Anything to do with Square Enix's now legendary role-playing series tends to sell ridiculously well in the Land of the Rising Sun, and this latest spin-off is no different. The Vita version of the title topped the software charts,...

Japanese Sales Charts: Odin Sphere Claims the Top Spots on PS4 and Vita

Sphere of influence

Atlus should be reasonably happy with Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir's initial performance in Japan, as the gorgeous action role-playing game took first and second place on the software charts. The Vita version climbed highest, selling through 43,394 copies, while the PlayStation 4 release barely missed out on the top spot, selling...

Sony Boasts About the PS4's Japanese Lineup with Sick Beats

That's a rap

Sony started last year with a deluge of PlayStation 4 releases in Japan, and it looks like it's adopting the exact same strategy in 2016. The marketing tactics have changed, however: the platform holder has just uploaded a video featuring a handful of the device's upcoming titles set to some crunk beats. It's probably the dumbest thing

Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Packs Up Its Swimsuit Until 24th March

Put on ice

Koei Tecmo seemingly needs just a little more time to touch up Dead or Alive Xtreme 3's tan lines, as the summer holiday simulator has been delayed on the PlayStation 4 and Vita from 25th February to 24th March in Japan. Remember, there's no Western release date confirmed just yet as the publisher has stressed that it feels the game is...
