Guessing what Japanese gamers' tastes and trends really do sometimes leads to a confusion without answers that do arise due to differences in culture and attraction. This also happened in the gaming industry. Some games that are super popular and full of hype in other regions can end up being ignored by Japanese gamers and vice versa. One strong example is what happened to Rockstar Games and their latest game - Red Dead Redemption 2. When in other parts of the world it ended up being the most anticipated game, Rockstar had to work hard with a variety of marketing strategies to introduce this game more broadly on the Japanese market. The good news? he succeeded.
The latest data released by Media Crate Sales shows the name of Red Dead Redemption 2, which managed to occupy the top position as the best-selling game last week for the Japanese market. He managed to sell around 132,984 copies of which all were recorded from the Playstation version 4. Another "western" game of interest - Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 now had to settle for second place with a sales figure of around 57 thousand copies, a number that was countless bad . So what about the rest of the other slots? Here are 20 best-selling games in Japan last week:
