Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Is Doing Well In Japan

Looking at the most recent Japanese sales figures, you won't be surprised to see Pokemon Sun and Moon at the top. But you might be surprised to see Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare right up there.

It doesn't seem like that long ago when Western first-person shooter games were generally shunned in Japan. Those days have passed, and games like Call of Duty have a core following in the country. Hence, Infinite Warfare fitting comfortably at number three on the Japanese sales chart.
