Elden Ring: Many Japanese have played more than 100 hours, a poll reveals

After three months and over 13 million copies sold since its launch, the Famitsu editorial team has well thought of inviting their Japanese readers to participate in a survey to find out about their gaming habits in Elden Ring. Apparently, even our Japanese colleagues are struggling to break away from FromSoftware’s latest work …

The survey saw the participation of nearly 1,700 players, the vast majority of them male, and appeared in the latest issue of the weekly magazine. The report includes numerous data, such as the breakdown by age, the methods of purchase and the platforms chosen (you can consult them all at this address), but it is undoubtedly the playtime that stands out, which denotes a strong attachment to the game by Japanese players. As you can see below, most of the voters played Elden Ring for more than 100 hoursa fact that was also reflected on the maximum level reached by the characters:
