Japanese games ranking | 13-19 September 2021

After the debut in the first position of the previous week, Tales of Arise sees the number of copies sold decrease (physiologically), but not its position in the ranking: with 33 thousand units placed, the PlayStation 4 version of the JRPG remains at the top of the ranking resisting to WarioWare: Get It Together! for Nintendo Switch (32,000 copies sold) and the new Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars (18,000 units placed). On the other hand, the PS5 version of Tales of Arise has disappeared from the top 10: to find out where it has fallen, we will have to wait for the publication of the remaining part of the top 30 scheduled in the coming days.

    Japanese console ranking | 13-19 September 2021

    No surprises in the ranking of consoles, still firmly dominated by Nintendo Switch, despite a significant drop in sales of the hybrid (from 56,000 to 31,000), probably due to the ever closer launch of the Nintendo Switch OLED. The performance of PlayStation 5, the second best-selling console also in this round, remained stable.

  • Switch – 31,290 (17,096,974)
  • PlayStation 5 – 13,289 (875,557)
