It’s a Capcom dominated top 5 in this week’s Japanese retail sales charts. Resident Evil Village was the big new release of the week, and considering its global launch figures, it’s no surprise that the game has enjoyed a solid enough start in Japan as well. The game’s PS4 version occupies first place, selling over 111,000 copies, with the PS5 version taking the fourth spot with over 38,000 copies sold, for a total of nearly 150,000 copies. However many copies it sold across Xbox consoles in the region is not know- whatever the figure was, it didn’t break into the top 10. Overall, the game’s debut sales have fallen short of what Resident Evil 3, Resident Evil 2, and Resident Evil 7 each managed though, though it’s worth considering that these numbers don’t include digital sales.

Meanwhile, fellow Capcom megaton release Monster Hunter Rise is continuing to sell well, coming in at second place with over 68,000 units sold, for lifetime retail sales in Japan that have already exceeded 2.1 million. New Pokemon Snap continues to sell well as well, occupying third place with over 46,000 units sold across the week.

On the hardware front, it’s no surprise that the Nintendo Switch is on top of the pack once more, with over 70,000 units sold. It far exceeds the PS5, which comes in second with over 22,00 units sold.
