Dark Souls 2 Shipped Over 1.2 Million Copies In Just Three Weeks
Namco Bandai has revealed their fiscal year-end report based on the figures collected by the end of March.
According to the report, Dark Souls 2 has shipped over 1.2 million copies in just three weeks of its release. However, these figures only include the PS3 and Xbox 360 version because PC version was released just a couple of weeks ago.
Dark Souls 2 seems to be doing great when compared to its predecessor as the previous title in the series took over a month to ship 1.5 million units and the sales of the game could only rise up to 2.4 Million.
The game is also leading the charts in this year’s report while PSP and PS Vita title God Eater 2 is on the second place, which has shipped over 700,000 units so far.
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z holds the third spot with 620,000 units shipped and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle has almost touched 550,000 units shipped (Japan Only). Finally Disney Magic Castle My Happy Life has shipped 500,000 units only in Japan.
Namco Bandai’s overall net profit is of 25 billion yen, which totals up to $246 million. The sales of the games saw an increase this year, but the profits have gone down to almost 22.6 per cent but publishers are hoping that this figure will be 11.8% in the next year.
