Japanese Sales Charts: Spider-Man Totally Dominates on PS4 as SNK Heroines Struggles

Marvel’s Spider-Man has swung straight to the top of the latest Japanese software charts, shifting an impressive 125,000 copies. By our calculations, that makes Spider-Man one of Japan’s biggest Western-made game launches of this console generation. Sony and Insomniac Games will no doubt be happy with that result.

On the whole, PlayStation 4 software actually had a relatively strong week, as PES 2019 dropped neatly into second place while Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars entered in third.

Unfortunately, SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy seems to have blown it. Although the PS4 version of the game outsold the Switch version almost two-to-one, it only registered around 10,000 copies, which, all things considered, is pretty terrible.

As for the hardware charts, it’s clear that strong software sales no longer have much impact on how Sony’s consoles perform on a weekly basis. The PS4 stood still at around 12,000 units, and the PS4 Pro moved roughly 7,400 units.
