Spider-Man has been at the top of the Japanese sales charts since its release, an extraordinary performance for a western game. However, much like in the UK, its reign at the top of the software charts has come to an end this week. In the new Media Create Report covering video game hardware and software sales in the land of the rising sun, we learn that Spider-Man was knocked down to sixth place last week. However, in spite of this, it managed to sell very well, with only a 40% drop in week on week sales.

The first place was taken up by the PS4 version of Warriors Orochi 4, which sold about 100,000 copies, followed by Trails of Cold Steel 4 in second place. The PS4 version of FIFA 19 was third, followed by the Switch versions of Warriors Orochi 4 and Dragon Ball FighterZ respectively rounding out the top five.

In spite of the PS4’s dominance on the software side of things, however, the hardware side saw the Switch still at the top, with 42,000 units sold last week. Meanwhile, the PS4 sold 20,000 units, while the 3DS, with under 8,000 units, rounded out the top three.
