According to Game Data Library, a site which collates Famitsu sales data, Death Stranding sold 185,909 copies in its launch week, ahead of Gran Turismo Sport (139,357), Marvel’s Spider-Man (132,520), and Days Gone (114,319).
Ghost of Tsushima also comfortably outsold last week’s other major release, Paper Mario Origami King for Switch, which moved 100,909 copies.

Sucker Punch’s open-world title is only the third Western-developed game to receive a perfect 40/40 score from Japan’s Famitsu magazine (the others were Grand Theft Auto V and Elder Scrolls IV: Skyrim).
