The hotly-anticipated Dark Souls II has done fairly well after its initial March 11th release. So well that Bandai Namco has reported that the game shipped roughly 1.2 million units in the US and Europe in its year-end financial report. Ending in March, it means that Dark Souls II accomplished their feat in roughly 3 weeks.
That number also doesn’t take into account sales in Japan, which have reached over 300,000 (published in the region by developers From Software themselves) according to Media Create reports. That would take them to roughly 1.5 million units shipped total, which is nothing to snuff at. Considering how these numbers were released almost a month before the April 25th release of Dark Souls II on PC and doesn’t seem to account for digital sales, you have to wonder how well the game will sell over its first 4 month period compared to the original Dark Souls.
Dark Souls II is available now on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
