Last week, Japan saw the release of a remake, a couple ports, and a crossover with Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 on Switch, Secret of Mana, and A Certain Magical Virtual-On. Japanese sales tracker Media Create released the latest video game software and hardware sales data from the week of February 12 through February 18, 2018.

 

At #1 this week is Monster Hunter: World, once again, for the fourth week in a row as it maintains its top spot with 85,322 units sold on PS4. The game is approaching its 2 million milestone in retail in Japan with a total of 1,836,291.

 

Secret of Mana’s remake was released last week and it debuted at #2 with 36,042 units sold on PS4 and #7 with 17,947 units sold on PS Vita for a total of 53,989 units sold between the two. At #3 we have Splatoon 2 with 21,815 units sold on Switch. #4 is the next new release of the week in the PS Vita otome game Idolish7: Twelve Fantasia, which debuted with 21,480 units, which is quite impressive for a PS Vita game, let alone a PS Vita otome game.
