Every week the IIDEA publish the list of best-selling games in Italy. We know well that the Bel Paese is always an unknown factor on the videogames issue, with sports titles always one step ahead of the others. The report provided sums the sales of the physical format with those in digital and this probably leads to unexpected surprises. Today is one of those weeks where GTA 5 and PES 2021 must give way to a truly incredible action game.
We are obviously talking about Nier Replicant, remake of the historic chapter released back in 2010. The title of Yoko Taro managed to get the first place in this special ranking with many Italian fans who decided to buy it to get closer, probably, to the narrative universe of the Japanese author. As you well know the game has received absolutely positive reviews unlike the chapter released ten years ago thanks to a decidedly more interesting and fun gameplay that is very close to that seen in Automata and a truly epic and compelling story.
Despite this, GTA 5, almost 8 years after its release, manages to sell a lot by winning second place. The Rockstar Games chapter is still one of the most played videogames, especially on PC thanks to mod RP, in which the players take the form of a normal NPC. Note of merit obviously also goes to PES 2021 which manages to beat the well-known FIFA 21, proving once again as the football title. Konami is back to the glories of the past.
