Ys: Memories of Celceta first released for the PS Vita in September 2012 and it made its way to PlayStation 4 last week in Japan to top Famitsu’s weekly video game sales chart.
Ys: Memories of Celceta serves as the basis title to the previous main-numbered entry in Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana as well as the next on, Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, so it was a good timing for Falcom to reintroduce the game. The PS4 version, Ys: Memories of Celceta – Kai, opened at #1 with 13,895 units sold for PS4.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate followed at #2 with 8,507 units sold for Switch, then Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at #3 with 7,258 units. Minecraft charted at #4 with 6,954 units sold for Switch, and the previous week’s top-seller in Days Gone was #5 with 6,276 units sold on PS4.
In hardware sales, the PS4 sold 5,572 plus an additional 3,988 PS4 Pros for a total of 9,560 units. The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console with 32,564 units sold in the week.
