It was a down week all around in Japan, with Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin on PlayStation 4 managing to be the #1 title of the week by selling just 20,500 copies.

Last week’s top title, 3rd Super Robot Wars Z: Tengoku Hen, fell to 2nd and 3rd on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3, respectively, moving a combined 30,000 units. As for Bloodborne, which celebrated crossing 1 million units sold worldwide yesterday, it finished in 6th and brought its lifetime retail sales in Japan to 185,000.
