Monster Hunter World Dominates PS4 Digital Sales in Japan for the Fourth Week in a Row
Secret of Mana debuts in second place among PS4 games on the Japanese PSN, but couldn't dethrone the hundred-ton Rathalos, Monster Hunter World.
Sony Interactive Entertainment released its digital PS4 sales charts for the Japanese PlayStation Store, related to the week between February 12th and February 18th.
You can check it out, even if the game at the top probably won’t surprise you:
- Monster Hunter World
- Secret of Mana
- Dynasty Warriors 9
- Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst
- Battlefield 1 Revolution
- Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet
- Shadow of the Colossus
- Need for Speed Payback
- Dragon Ball FighterZ
- Toaru Majutsu no Virtual-On
- FIFA 18
- Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition
- Dragon’s Crown
- Dragon Quest III
- Need for Speed
- Pro Evolution Soccer 2018
- Star Wars Battlefront II
Monster Hunter World is at the top again, resisting the assault of the new kid on the block, Secret of Mana, which pushed Dynasty Warriors 9 (which was second the week before) down a notch into third place.
It’s also worth mentioning that Secret of Mana did achieve an easier first place, among PS Vita games.
Quite interestingly, Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet holds relatively fast dropping only from 4th place to 6th, giving in to games on sales. On the other hand, Dragon Ball FighterZ, that ranked third the week prior, collapsed all the way to 11th place.
Shadow of the Colossus actually climbed one place, from 8th to 7th, showing a bit of lasting power.
It’s certainly interesting to see how long Monster Hunter World will continue its cavalcade at the top of the charts. It’s holding the same position at retail, and while it’s naturally slowing down as we’re getting far beyond release, it’s certainly still selling very well for a game that’s a month old by now.
