Death Stranding Sells 185,909 Copies In Japan

Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding has made the top list on Famitsu. That’s right, the game that has gamers and fans alike split like a great earthquake is leading the pack of the best top ten selling physical games in Japan for the week of November 4th through November 10th, 2019.

Whether you love him or hate him, Kojima and crew are currently leading Famitsu’s chart for the week before this one with 185,909 copies sold. This, of course, is in Japan.
