Japan: DmC on top, sales down on DMC4

24 January 2013

Capcom’s DmC: Devil May Cry has sliced and diced its way to the top of the Japanese software charts.

The Ninja Theory-developed reboot sold less than half of what Devil May Cry 4 achieved back in 2008, but still managed to beat off the competition to claim the no.1 spot.

Media Create reports that the PlayStation 3 version of the hack-‘em-up title sold 110,429 copies, though the Xbox 360 release didn’t make a dent in the Top 20.

For comparison, DMC4 flogged 205,390 units upon its release on PS3 in Japan five years ago.

DmC managed to top the U.K. All Format Charts this week as previously reported, though again sales were down on that of DMC4’s chart performance. Nonetheless, it seems the DMC brand still has plenty of pulling power.
