Last week, Japan had a big release with Type-Moon’s high-speed Servant action game Fate/Extella Link for PS4 and PS Vita, Life is Strange: Before the Storm, Little Nightmares, and Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido. Japanese sales tracker Media Create released the latest video game software and hardware sales data from the week of June 4 through June 10, 2018.


The #1 spot of the week goes to Fate/Extella Link with 78,647 units sold on the PS4, and it also got the #2 spot for its PS Vita version which sold 38,156 units combining for a total of 116,803 units between the two. Its previous entry, Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star sold 73,019 units on PS4 and 67,356 (+18,439 with the Velvet Box Edition)units on PS Vita for a total of 140,375 (or 158,814 with all versions). While Fate/Extella Link didn’t match up to its predecessor, it’s a solid follow-up for a second title and it’s understandable that it sold much less on the PS Vita in 2018 compared to its predecessor’s launch in November 2016. The overall sell-through rate dropped from the previous 82.47% to 72.73%, which is still pretty solid.


At #3 we have Splatoon 2 nice and cozy in a familiar spot with 13,423 units sold on Switch. Last week’s top two titles followed with Dark Souls: Remastered at #4 with 12,610 units sold on PS4 and Detroit: Become Human at #5 with 10,935 units sold on PS4.


As for other new titles in the week, Life is Strange: Before the Storm charted at #8 with 8,091 units sold on PS4. Little Nightmares: Deluxe Edition debuted at #10 on Switch with 7,776 units sold and #15 on PS4 with 5,041 units sold for a combined total of 12,817 between the two. We don’t often see a Switch version of a game outsell its PS4 counterpart by this much, but we’ll likely be seeing more instances in the near future with plenty of third party titles headed its way.


Lastly, we have Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido at #13 with 5,235 units sold on Nintendo Switch and at #20 with 2,392 units sold on Nintendo 3DS, combining for a total of 7,627 between Switch and 3DS.

In hardware sales, we saw an increase in all PlayStation consoles. The PS4 sold 20,174 units and the PS4 Pro sold 6,497 to put it at 26,671 units in combined sales. The Nintendo Switch was again the best-selling hardware with a big 40,834 units sold in the week. Going by Media Create’s numbers, the Nintendo Switch is currently at 4,346,549 units sold in Japan since its launch in March 3, 2017.
