This last week the sale of video games in Japan has been marked by the arrival of Yakuza: Kiwami 2 for PlayStation 4, which has become the best-selling game of the last seven days with 131,931 units. D3 Publisher’s Earth DefenseForce 5 has followed closely with more than 111,000 units sold.

That has meant that the sales of PlayStation 4, both in its basic model and in the Pro, have experienced a considerable increase and with more than 85,000 units between both models.

Nintendo, however, continues to reign in the field of hardware with Switch, which despite not having received any major releases these days has sold more than 164,000 units.
