Japanese Sales Charts: Devil May Cry 5 Debuts in Number One Spot


As you might’ve been expecting, Devil May Cry 5 has made a strong start in Japan, coming in atop the software chart by some margin. It sold just over 100,000 copies in its first three days, putting it comfortably in the lead, but it’s actually a low point for the series in terms of launch week sales. Devil May Cry 4 sold about double when it launched on PS3 in 2008, and the figures only increase as you trace the history of the franchise. Still, these numbers only reflect physical sales, and it’s likely the new entry will have sold a fair amount on digital stores.

Elsewhere, Dead or Alive 6 slips all the way down to 11th place, and other PlayStation 4 releases struggle to make much of a dent lower down the top 20.

In terms of hardware, PS4 fares a little better than last week, selling a total of about 32,000 units. Not much to write home about, then, as per usual. Check out the full rundown below.
