Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball Tops PS4 Digital Sales in Japan; NieR: Automata Jumps Back to Second

Konami's Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball keeps selling well in Japan, and NieR: Automata jumps back in second place among digital PS4 sales.

Sony Interactive Entertainment released its usual weekly sales chart for the Japanese PlayStation Store, and last week there actually were no new releases, so the competition was all about older titles.

You can check out the full top-twenty below:

  1. Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2018
  2. NieR: Automata
  3. Dead by Daylight: Special Edition
  4. Mad Max
  5. God of War
  6. Monster Hunter World
  7. Battlefield 1 Revolution
  8. Tetris Ultimate

  10. Cities Skylines PS4 Edition
  11. Grand Theft Auto V

  19. Raiden V: Director’s Cut

Konami’s Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2018 proves once more the popularity in Japan of Konami’s cutesy sports franchise, but we see a welcome return of NieR: Automata straight back to second place again showing us plenty of evidence that Yoko Taro’s game has long legs and keeps selling as more and more gamers are drawn into the fold by the positive word-of-mouth.

Dead by Daylight holds firm in third place like in the previous week, also helped by convenient pricing. Monster Hunter World earns back two places, also keeping to sell after passing eight million units between digital downloads and retail shipments.

Utawarerumono: A Lullaby For Those Who Are Scattered and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II: Kai – The Erebonian Civil War have disappeared from the chart completely, showing once more how most remasters aren’t all that popular in Japan.

If you still haven’t jumped on the NieR: Automata hype train, and want to do so, you can grab a copy on Amazon.
