Media Create Predicts Dark Souls Remastered on PS4 to Keep Selling Well in Japan Long Term

The weekly analysis from Media Create reveals that Dark Souls Remastered has sold over 71,000 units on PS4 in Japan alone beating out one of it’s predecessors, Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin.

Media Create Predicts Dark Souls Remastered Long-Term Success on PS4

Dark Souls Remastered debuted in first place in Japan’s weekly top 20 charts with 71,739 copies sold and beat Dark Souls II: First Sin’s lifetime sales of 67,000. This shows that it had a strong start to it’s release in the Japanese market. With this in mind, Media Create expects Dark Souls Remastered to keep up it’s momentum in the long-term, as it crushed 20,000 sales just in it’s first week.

It also needs a mention that remasters don’t usually do well in Japan, which adds further success to Dark Souls Remastered making it’s claim in the charts. However on the otherside of the spectrum, Dark Souls Remastered did not even reach the the top 60 charts on Xbox One.

Dark Souls Remastered is currently available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. It is expected to join Nintendo Switch later this summer 2018.

    I don’t buy it. Maybe if the remaster were good, like Shadow of the Colossus on PS4 I could see it.

    It would be cool if it were a full remake like SotC on PS4, but you can’t compare them because Dark Souls is just remastered, and SotC is a remake, fully recreated from the ground up. As a remaster, I think Dark Souls is pretty great, I’m really happy with how it turned out! If it had been a full remake then I’d have some issues with it, but it’s not.

    I feel like it released at a rough time because of all the recent remakes like SotC and N’Sane Trilogy. People seem to confuse remaster and remake, and end up comparing Dark Souls Remastered to the full ground-up remakes like those, which isn’t really fair to the game. Maybe a few consoles down the line we’ll get a full remake of Dark Souls too! But for now I think the remaster is pretty awesome.

    It doesn’t help that, at $40, they charged as much for the remaster as the new SotC. It’s hard to hold it to a lower standard when it doesn’t cost less.

    Of course I could compare it to the Skyrim remaster, but there it runs into the issue that, at least for me and other people who owned it on PC, the remastered Skyrim was free. I could compare it to the Bulletstorm remaster, except that pretty much everyone agreed that one was a ripoff, so being essentially the same doesn’t do it any favors.
