Hogwarts Legacy is the second best selling game of all time for the PlayStation 5 in Japan

Japan, as we know, in pop entertainment has its own rules and not everything that is so successful in the West is destined to repeat them also in the archipelago: however, when something proves to have what it takes to win the heart of the Japanese public, it becomes a hit, sometimes a cult real. The Harry Potter saga has long been dear to the Japanese, and the version Hogwarts Legacy, the stunning and much-talked-about Avalanche title produced by Warner Bros. Pictures. , confirms it: it is, in fact, the second best-selling game in PlayStation 5 history, and the first among Western games.

According to reliable sales data (which, obviously, will now be a little different than at the time of the survey, which took place days ago, but in any case, all in favor of HL), the WB Horizon title exceeded Forbidden West and Elden Ring by 3,000 and 13,000 copy, with an estimated total of 154,174 units, which is indeed an extraordinary result. We are far from the numbers of Gran Turismo 7, which travels almost twice the number of copies sold (almost 300,000) but the separation of the title from the program (GOTY is almost universal and a super popular title in Japan) is in itself a source of pride. Selling nearly twice as much as fifth-place Resident Evil Village is another major coup, adding to a host of other firsts, as most single-player games ever and best-selling in the UK, where it (expectedly?) outperformed Elden Ring in just five weeks. And in all of this let’s not count the upcoming sales on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, which despite fears of below-the-top performance due to now-old hardware will still be excellent, given the installed base and general interest in the title for sure. More “casual friendly” than many other dedicated bestsellers, however, it is intended for an experienced and persistent audience such as users of Gran Turismo and Souls.
