Dragon Quest XI Beats Crash Bandicoot to the Top of PS4 Sales on Japanese PlayStation Store
No one stops the Dragon Quest XI train in Japan, not even Crash Bandicoot himself.
Crash Bandicoot is fairly popular in Japan, and Vicarious Visions’ labor of love Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has pretty much dominated sales charts around the world.
Of course, Japan is quite different, and there there is a behemoth named Dragon Quest XI, that is at its second week on the shelves, but it’s still going strong.
The result is that Crash had to be content with a second place in the local Playstation Store sales chart related to the period between July 31st and June 6th
- Dragon Quest XI
- Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
- Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition
- Final Fantasy XIV Complete Edition
- Resident Evil 6
- Battlefield 1
- Salt and Sanctuary
- Final Fantasy VII
- Bloodborne: The Old Hunters Edition
- Dead Island: Definitive Collection
- Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster
- Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition
- Simple DL Series G4U Vol. 1 The Mahjong
- The Wicther 3: Wild Hunt
- Resident Evil 5
- Gravity Rush 2
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered
- Horizon Zero Dawn
Besides Dragon Quest XI‘s dominance and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy‘s good performance despite not reaching the top spot, we can see how Final Fantasy XIV keeps pushing sales after the release of the expansion Stormblood almost two months ago.
A few staples also keep driving sales, regardless of their age. Minecraft still sells in like ramen bowls in the winter, Salt And Sanctuary still tickles that masochist fancy, and Final Fantasy VII and Terraria never seem to get old.
Gravity Rush 2 and Horizon: Zero Dawn also keep hanging there at the bottom of the chart, showing that they still sell in Japan, even if not stellar amounts.
