Sony Interactive Entertainment released its sales chart for the Japanese PlayStation Store related to the week between March 12th and March 18th.

Below you can check out the full top-twenty. As usual, Sony does not release numbers, but we still get to know which games performed better than others.

  1. Attack on Titan 2
  2. Hokuto Ga Gotoku
  3. Monster Hunter World
  4. Battleborn
  5. Undertale
  6. Tales of Berseria
  7. Rainbow Six Siege: Advanced Edition
  8. Devil May Cry HD Collection
  9. Minecraft
  10. Gundam Breaker 3
  11. The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel I: Kai – Thors Military Academy 1204
  12. Battlefield 1 Revolution
  13. Horizon: Zero Dawn: Complete Edition
  14. Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster
  15. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition
  16. Winning Post 8 2018
  17. Final Fantasy IX
  18. Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana
  19. The Evil Within
  20. Burnout Paradise Remastered

After two weeks at the top, NieR: Automata completely disappeared from the chart, with the effect of its anniversary discount on sales gone. The new king is Koei Tecmo’s Attack on Titan 2, which also performed rather well at retail, despite not topping the Media Create charts.

Sega’s Hokuto Ga Gotoku is denied the top of the chart for the second week in a row, and Monster Hunter World actually gains a position, climbing back up to third place.

Battleborn‘s weird presence near the top is confirmed, thanks to a massive 90% discount, while Undertale keeps soldiering on as the little lovely indie darling it is.

Like at retail, Devil May Cry HD Collection showcased a weak debut, as Japanese gamers really don’t care all that much about remasters that don’t come with very relevant content or gameplay additions, and Dante’s old adventures definitely don’t.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
