Japanese Sales Chart: Destiny Takes the Top Spot

September 13, 2017Written by Tyler Treese

Destiny 2 Sales

It’s safe to say that Destiny 2 has worldwide appeal, as Bungie’s first-person shooter topped the Japanese sales charts in its first week. While it fell short of Everybody’s Golf‘s first week sales of over 100,000 copies, the multiplayer-focused shooter managed to move over 50,000 units. That’s definitely a strong start.

As far as hardware goes, the Nintendo Switch once again managed to top the charts by a wide margin. It outsold the second best selling console (the PlayStation 4) by nearly 30,000 units.

There weren’t many new releases on this week’s chart, but KonoSuba managed to chart for both PlayStation 4 and Vita. The visual novel managed to take the 10 and 11 spots

According to Media Create, here’s the 20 best-selling retail games (new releases are bolded), along with how each system sold in Japan from August 28 to September 3, 2017:
