Hyrule Warriors meanwhile falls in the charts.
Japan’s software sales for the week of August 18th to 24th have been revealed courtesy of Media Create and much to the surprise of no one, Level 5’s Youkai Watch 2 is still on top. It sold 77,465 units and has notched up 2,289,983 units over its lifetime. It’s a major success over the original over the original.
Meanwhile, Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us: Remastered has debuted in Japan for the PS4 and managed to sell 30,587 units in its first week. Diablo III also made its debut with 15,816 units sold and interestingly enough, Nintendo’s Hyrule Warriors dropped down to seventh place in the charts. It managed to sell 15,142 units with lifetime sales at 84,232 units. It’s not bad but considering the hype and overall positive response in its first week, it seems a bit sobering.
Regardless, Nintendo’s still dominating in the charts. Yoshi’s New Island sold 12,931 units (lifetime units at 157,092) and Mario Kart 8 sold 12,075 units for lifetime sales of 639,710 units.
