Dark Souls II tops this week's Japanese sales.

Dark Souls II

Dark Souls II leads this week’s Japanese sales chart. The PlayStation 3 version took top sales at 255,197, while the Xbox 360 version charted at 14 with almost 6,000 sales.

Yokai Watch took second place with an additional 37,000 units. Its high position on the chart so long after release proves the anime is fairing well for the franchise.

On the hardware side, PlayStation 4 sales are still leading with almost 30,000 moved, but are 5,000 down from last week. We imagine it’ll see a jump next week with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes launching on Thursday. PS Vita sales follow at 28,000, and 3DS XL at 23,000.
