Media Create Expects Dark Souls Remastered on PS4 to Keep Selling Well in Japan in the Long-Term

Dark Souls Remastered for PS4 had a pretty strong debut in Japan, but Media Create expects it to keep doing well for a while.

Media Create released its weekly analysis following its weekly top-20 charts on Wednesday, and this time around is all about Dark Souls Remastered, which debuted in first place in Japan with 71,739 units sold on PS4.

We learn that the game beat its predecessor Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin soundly. Not only it passed its first-week sales of 20,000 easily, but it also beat in a single week its total lifetime sales, that are at  67,000.

We also heard that Dark Souls Remastered sold on PS4 the 81.97% of the initial shipment, that Media Create judges a high level, showing “strong support” from the fans of the series.

Since the lifetime sales of Scholar of the First Sin on PS4 are over three times those of the initial week, Media Create expects Dark Souls Remastered to keep selling well in the country in the long-term.

Incidentally, the Xbox One version of the remaster didn’t even make the top-60 char, but I doubt this will surprise anyone. After all, it’s Japan. It’s also worth mentioning that remasters normally don’t do very well in Japan, so the fact that Dark Soul Remastered had a strong first week is certainly a signal of the popularity of the series.

Dark Souls Remastered is also expected to come for Switch, but it has been delayed to later this summer.
