The Last of Us is a game from American developers that takes place in real-world America locations, but it is still being embraced by Japanese audiences.

According to a report from Siliconera, The Last of Us sold 117,465 during its first week of release in Japan, which is about 88% of its initial shipment.

These sales numbers do not exceed Naughty Dog's previous game, Uncharted 3, but The Last of Us has a few roadblocks preventing it from competing fairly, one of the biggest being its rating. In Japan, The Last of Us has a CERO Z rating, which is a step above the equivalent M rating in North America, and it usually hurts sales.
