Ys VIII Lacrimosa of Dana

Sales of Sony’s PlayStation 4 have risen by 17 percent in Japan thanks to the release of Falcom’s Ys VIII, which has finally knocked Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition off of the top software sales chart.

Hardware sales show that the Nintendo Switch is still the best selling console in Japan, though PlayStation 4 sales have risen by 17 percent, in addition to a 12 percent increase in PlayStation 4 Pro sales and a 5 percent sales increase for the PlayStation Vita.

The Idea Factory’s Marginal #4 Road to Galaxy released on Vita this week also, and made it to eighth position in the chart. Three Kingdoms from Koei Tecmo, also for Vita, made it to tenth place in the chart bringing up the final place.
