Battlefield 4 unloaded over 133,000 copies on the Japanese market in its debut, according to data obtained by tracking authority Media Create.
The PlayStation 3 version of DICE's first-person shooter vanquished all challengers in its first week on the market. The title sold 121,699 units on the way to dethroning Pokémon X & Y, which spent the previous month atop the Japanese charts. The victory was a narrow one though, as Game Freak's steadfast role-player moved 115,630 copies during the same period.
The Xbox 360 release of Battlefield 4 charted at number 17 with 10,547 sales.
