Devil May Cry 5

Last week in Japan, it was Devil May Cry 5 week with the release of the anticipated action game by Capcom. Otherwise it was a pretty quiet week with the only other new entry being Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn. Japanese sales tracker Media Create shared the latest video game software and hardware sales data from the week of March 4 to March 10, 2019.


The top-selling title of the week went to Devil May Cry 5 at #1 with 116,202 units sold for PS4. We don’t have the number of the entire series’ debuts for comparison, but the previous main-numbered entry in  Devil May Cry 4 sold 205,390 units on PS3 at launch in 2008. The 2013 title DmC Devil May Cry sold 110,429 units on PS3 in its debut.


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate got the #2 spot for a second week in a row with 23,407 units sold for Switch. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe followed at #3 with 20,101 units, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at #4 with 12,301 units, and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Let’s Go, Eevee! at #5 with 11,394 units sold for Switch. The next and only other new entry of the week followed at #6 with Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn selling 10,607 units on the Nintendo 3DS.


In hardware sales, the PlayStation 4 saw a nice Devil May Cry 5 bump with 25,154 units sold plus an additional 7,208 units from PS4 Pros for a total of 32,362 (19,857 units last week). The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console of the week with 69,766 units sold, making up for about 62.9% of all hardware sold. The Nintendo Switch is currently at 7,636,802 units sold in Japan since its launch in March 3, 2017.
