One Piece World Seeker

Last week in Japan, we saw the debuts of several key titles including a couple open-world games in The Division 2 and One Piece: World Seeker, LoveR, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Music and Arts Clips, and Samurai Warriors 4 DX. Japanese sales tracker Media Create shared the latest video game software and hardware sales data from the week of March 11 to March 17, 2019.

 

The #1 spot of the week went to The Division 2 with 63,817 units sold on the PS4. The first game, The Division, opened with 80,703 units back in March 2016. Following at #2 is One Piece: World Seeker with 51,039 units sold on PS4. There hasn’t been too many new One Piece action games for comparison, but One Piece: Burning Blood sold 68,178 units (35,496 on PS4 and 32,682 on PS Vita) back in April 2016.

 

Last week’s best-seller Devil May Cry 5 charted at #3 in its second week with 33,149 units sold on PS4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was at #4 with 20,706 units sold on Switch and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe at #5 with 16,997 units sold on Switch.

 

As for other new titles, LoveR by Photo Kano creator Ichiro Sugiyama charted at #8 with 9,985 units sold on PS4. 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Music and Arts Clips debuted at #14 with 5,872 units sold on PS4. Samurai Warriors 4 DX charted at #15 with 5,330 units sold on PS4 and at #17 with 4,704 units sold for Switch to combine for 10,034 units between the two. Lastly, Kenka Bancho Otome 2nd Rumble!! debuted at #18 with 4,014 units sold on PS Vita.

 

We also need to give a shout out to Judgment which wasn’t even in the top-50 the week prior but managed to get up to #9 as a result of Sega stopping its physical and digital sales following the arrest of Pierre Taki. The game has been topping the charts in Japan but we’ll get more into detail on that in a later report.

 

In hardware sales, the PlayStation 4 sold 25,015 units plus an additional 7,206 units from PS4 Pros to total 32,221 units sold in the week. The Nintendo Switch dropped by about 13k from the week before, but it sold 56,954 units to be the best-selling console of the week with about 59.4% of all hardware sales. Going by Media Create’s figures, the Nintendo Switch is currently at 7,693,756 units sold in Japan since its launch in March 3, 2017.
