Sony Interactive Entertainment released its ranking for PS4 sales on the Japanese PlayStation Store related to the week between February 5th and February 11th.

The top twenty were:

  1. Monster Hunter: World
  2. Dynasty Warriors 9
  3. Dragon Ball FighterZ
  4. Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet
  5. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
  6. Abzu
  7. Undertale
  8. Shadow of the Colossus
  9. Firewatch
  10. Simple DL Series G4U Vol. 1 The Mahjong
  11. Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection
  12. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
  13. Battlefield 1 Revolution
  14. Hoshi no Kakera no Monogatari: Hitokakera-Ban
  15. The Last of Us Remastered
  16. Dragon’s Crown Pro
  17. Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition
  18. Fallout 4
  19. Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes
  20. God Eater 2: Rage Burst

Unsurprisingly, Monster Hunter World has held the top of the chart for the third week in a row, which is not a surprise. Monster Hunter has done incredibly well both critically and commercially since launch.

Dynasty Warriors 9 placed second, while Dragon Ball FighterZ managed to hold in third position, which left Bandai Namco’s other game, Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, in fourth place.

That said, there are some disappointments with Shadow of the Colossus in eighth place, and Dragon’s Crown Pro in sixteenth. This confirms the trend that remasters do not sell well in the Japanese market, especially when they provide only a nominal resolution boost.

Meanwhile, some older games have hit top spots due to recent sales.
