Although Bayonetta 2 was a massive flop at Japanese retail, Bayonetta 1 seems to be performing better than expected on the Japanese Switch eShop.
According to the latest Japanese download rankings between February 15, 2018 and February 21, Bayonetta was the No. 1 highest selling game of the week, followed by Minecraft at No. 2, Overcooked Special Edition at No. 3, and Bayonetta 2 at No. 4. Take note – Bayonetta isn’t sold together with Bayonetta 2 in Japan.
Unfortunately we aren’t able to know how many units were sold. Let’s hope Bayonetta continues to sell well!
