NieR: Automata and NiOh Sold 38,180 and 43,724 PS4 Digital Copies in Japan in February

As the first digital sales data comes in, NieR: Automata and NiOh for PS4 are the best selling games in Japan for February according to Famitsu.

Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu include the digital sales data for Japan for the month of February, finally giving us a complete look at how the most relevant games released last month did in the archipelago of the rising sun.

Last month’s ranking had a few strange elements due to the fact that three games were priced at 100 yen, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag due to a sale to celebrate the launch of the Assassin’s Creed movie, and Grasshopper Manufacture’s Let it Die.

Of course, those topped the chart for digital sales, but the best selling full-priced games were NiOh and NieR: Automata.

Here’s the chart related to the period between January 30th and February 26th.

  1. Assassin’s Creed Unity (PS4) – 133,943
  2. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag (PS4) – 126,689
  3. Let it Die (PS4) – 63,675
  4. NiOh (PS4) – 43,724
  5. NieR: Automata (PS4) – 38,180
  6. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege (PS4) – 23,645
  7. Super Robot Wars V (PS4) – 17,904
  8. For Honor (PS4) – 14,627
  9. Super Robot wars V (PS Vita) – 10,851
  10. Dragon Quest Monster Joker 3 Professional (3DS) – 8,776

Summed with Famitsu’s figures for retail sales, NieR: Automata is crowned best selling game in Japan in February, with 220,942 units sold, followed by NiOh with 179,437. Dragon Quest Monster Joker 3 Professional, that didn’t do very well on the digital market (Japanese Nintendo fans don’t seem to have embraced digital like PlayStation ones), came in third, with 151,527 copies sold.
