The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was released in Japan on May 21st, and the game sold 67,385 copies in its first week. Additionally, Japanese sales tracker Media Create reports that The Witcher 3 sold through 91.97% of its stock.


That’s a far higher figure than The Witcher 2, which was released on Xbox 360 in August 2012, and sold just 5,000 copies in its first week. Given that Japan largely favours Sony consoles over Microsoft ones, it isn’t surprising that The Witcher 3 saw a far better debut than its predecessor.


That said, PlayStation 4 sales didn’t see an increase alongside The Witcher 3’s release, which means that folks that picked up the game already owned the console.
