Sony decided to appreciate the companies whose productions have recently achieved the highest sales. PlayStation Partner Awards 2021 Japan Asia were awarded and, as we could have expected, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade was very popular.
Every year Sony organizes a special event called PlayStation Awards, during which the corporation awards prizes to publishers and developers. The company appreciates productions that are very popular. Last year, eFootball PES 2020, Dragon Ball Z Kakarot, and Final Fantasy VII Remake all achieved their best results.
The situation is interesting because in 2021 the production of Square Enix was also on the podium – this is the list of the most-bought games that were created in the region of Japan and Asia (in the period from October 2020 to September 2021):
- Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade (Square Enix)
- Final Fantasy XIV
- Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation 2 (Bandai Namco)
- NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139… (Square Enix)
- Tales of Arise (Bandai Namco)
It should be noted that although Sony rewards developers from Asia, in this case the company emphasizes sales from around the world.
Sony also admits special prizes – in this case, the awards go to the production that was developed outside the region of Japan and Asia, but it is in this region that has accumulated the highest sales (from October 2020 to September 2021). In addition, the company also appreciates independent titles developed in Japan and Asia with the highest sales worldwide, and titles created in this region, which were very active by players during the PlayStation 5 release period.
- Apex Legends (Electronic Arts)
- Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition (Capcom)
- Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin (Marvelous)
