Last week in Japan, we saw a few releases which included Ubisoft’s latest action game in For Honor, as well as Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII with Power-Up Kit and Digimon World: Next Order for PS4. Here’s the latest from Japanese sales tracker, Media Create, with a look at software and hardware sales from the week of February 13 through February 19, 2017.


To start out with the top of the list, we have For Honor at #1 with 40,062 copies sold for its debut on PlayStation 4. The next new title is Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII with Power-Up Kit’s PS4 release which sold 7,719 copies.


Following, 5pb.’s latest visual novel on PS Vita, Kamaitachi no Yoru: Rinne Sansei, charted at #11 with 6,140 copies sold. Digimon World: Next Order –International Edition- which is basically the same version we got last month, placed #13 with 5,930 units sold on PS4, but let’s not forget that Japan had the PS Vita version since March 2016.


And finally, Idea Factory’s horror otome visual novel game, Diabolik Lovers: Lost Eden debuted at #14 with 5,537 copies sold for PlayStation Vita. The hardware side of sales didn’t see any significant changes, with a slight drop on all fronts. Again, things probably won’t change much until we see the release of the Nintendo Switch.
