One Piece Odyssey is one of the most prominent games released recently that took the anime and gaming community by storm. The title features an intriguing semi-open world alongside turn-based combat that seems simple in premise but fun nonetheless. Despite some criticisms, it has been rated nicely by many critics and players.
Bandai Namco‘s latest work was released on January 12th, and it appears to have rolled over sufficient units for it to be a staggering success in Japan and various other regions.

The PlayStation 4 version has possibly sold more because the last-gen console is readily available and used by most Japanese gamers in contrast to the next-gen version.

The total sales by the latest 9th-generation Pokemon game have accumulated to 4,695,052 retail copies sold since its histrionic inception.

The fourth place was maintained by Splatoon 3, which sold an admirable 22,094 physical copies last week. What’s worth noting is Minecraft steadily creeping up the charts to seventh place; it sold over 11,000 retail copies last week and has overall accumulated 3,008,474 retail units sold since its release.
In terms of hardware sales, the Nintendo Switch continued its spree and towered over the other contenders. The handheld sold 74,690 units, out of which 44,147 amounted to the OLED model. The generic Switch sold 17,957 units, while the Lite model rolled over 12,586 copies.
The PlayStation 5 has also sold over 2.5 million units. The base PS5 model sold 39468 consoles (a total of 2,174,709 units), and PS5 Digital Edition rolled over 4645 units (a cumulative total of 331,949 units).
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet dominated the last year’s Japan sales charts by selling the most amount of retail units. It remains to be seen whether One Piece Odyssey could catch up to the enormous figure by the end of 2023.
