Japanese Sales Charts: Spider-Man PS4 Secures Second Week at the Top, Holds off Tomb Raider

Marvel’s Spider-Man has been a bit of a revelation for Sony in Japan. It swung straight in at number one last week, and it’s managed to retain its place at the top of the charts. For the second week in a row, Spidey dominated Japanese software, shifting a further 81,000 copies. Total sales now break 200,000, which is very impressive for a Western-made title.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the new entry worth talking about, but it didn’t come close to stopping Spider-Man. Lara’s latest only managed 32,000 copies on PlayStation 4. That’s not quite as bad as Black Clover: Quartet Knights, however. Bandai Namco’s newest anime escapade sold 4,630 copies, which means that it absolutely bombed, much like Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Strikers did just a couple of weeks ago.

On the hardware side of things, numbers remain low for PS4. The standard model continues to hover around 12, 000 units, while the Pro dropped to 5,000 units. These figures obviously add up over weeks and months, but it’s becoming clear that the PS4 has established an audience and is now struggling to expand it further.
