Dying Light is proving quite popular in Japan. Not only Techland’s zombie game managed to pull a very nice second place on the Media Create charts (that don’t include digital sales), but it’s proving very popular on the local PlayStation Store.

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia released the dedicated charts for the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita, and below you can see the quite interesting results:


  1. Dying Light
  2. Minecraft: PS4 Edition
  3. Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin
  4. Battlefield 4 -Premium Edition
  5. Earth Defense Force 4.1: Shadow of New Despair
  6. Bloodborne
  7. How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition
  8. Need for Speed Rivals – Complete Edition

  7. Sword Art Online: Lost Song
  8. Söldner-X 2: Final Prototype
  9. Senran Kagura: Estival Versus

Besides the triumph of Dying Light, we can see that From Software’s games hold strong, with Dark Souls II dropping just two places to third, which is quite impressive for a remaster, and Bloodborne holding firm in last week‘s sixth place.

Minecraft keeps printing money, probably amounting to almost the whole income from Microsoft’s games division in Japan (and on PlayStation Platforms, no less), while Battlefield 4 holds its nest near the top for the gazillionth week in a row, apparently immortal and invincible against all odds.

And they say that Japanese gamers don’t like first person shooters…

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. 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.
