Additionally, Grasshopper Manufacturer’s free-to-play game Let it Die was also sold for 108 Yen simply due to it getting a CERO Z rating in the country.

Excluding those three titles, NiOh and NieR: Automata were able to top the charts with 43,724 and 38,180 digital copies sold, respectively. After adding in Famitsu’s earlier released reports on retail sales, NieR: Automata sold a total of 220,942 copies while NiOh sold 179,437.
