Ghost of Tsushima breaks Switch’s dominance in the Japanese ranking

Famitsu shared physical sales of games and console hardware in Japan for the week of August 16 to August 22. Thanks to this data we discover that Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut was able to break the dominance of Switch in the ranking, obtaining a position with both the PlayStation 4 and the PS5 versions.

But let’s see the details of the Japanese ranking of games sold in physical format (in brackets the total sales since the release):

  1. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure (Nintendo, 10/18/19) – 17,656 (2,772,950)
  2. [NSW] Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel: Saikyo Battle Royale !! (Konami, 08/12/21) – 16,742 (113,039)
  3. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, 04/28/17) – 15,756 (3,995,095)
  4. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft, 06/21/18) – 15,385 (2,139,193)
  5. [PS5] Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut (SIE, 08/20/21) – 13,745 (New)
  6. [NSW] Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban! (Konami, 11/19/20) – 13,581 (2,336,531)
  7. [PS4] Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut (SIE, 08/20/21) – 10,224 (New)
  8. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo, 12/07/18) – 8,870 (4,389,399)
  9. [NSW] Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury (Nintendo, 02/12/21) – 8,212 (857,492)
  10. [NSW] Super Mario Party (Nintendo, 10/05/18) – 6,810 (1,970,823)

As you can see, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut failed to get to the top positions, but – even considering it’s a re-release – it’s a remarkable achievement. If we combined both versions, in any case, it would be the best-selling game. Recall that Nintendo Switch tends to completely dominate the weekly sales chart, so seeing the game in the Top 10 is not to be taken for granted.

But let’s also see the Japanese hardware ranking :

  1. Switch – 62,022 (16,907,165)
  2. Switch Lite – 10,505 (4,020,185)
  3. PlayStation 5 – 10,083 (813,989)
  4. Xbox Series X – 2,932 (54,093)
  5. Xbox Series S – 2,850 (23,534)
  6. PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – 2,555 (161,438)
  7. PlayStation 4 – 943 (7,803,924)
  8. New 2DS LL (including 2DS) – 522 (1,170,796)

Unsurprisingly, the Nintendo Switch continues to dominate with both the standard and the Lite model. PlayStation 5 manages to get the third position. The million units have now passed, including the Digital version. Xbox, on the other hand, is as always the least requested platform.
