The weekly hardware and software sales from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and Capcom is enjoying another strong debut. After taking the number two spot with the Resident Evil 2 remake back in January, Capcom took first this week with Devil May Cry 5. Although the hack and slash adventure managed only about half as many launch sales as the survival-horror remake, it still had a respectable debut with 116,202 sales.

Devil May Cry 5 also helped boost PlayStation 4 sales for the week. Sony’s console seemed just about tapped out when multiple new games couldn’t boost its February sales, but Capcom’s latest did the trick. PlayStation 4 sales jumped by around 14,000 units this week. That said, Nintendo Switch is still in a dominating lead with nearly 70,000 sales to PlayStation 4’s 32,000.
