Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, Bandai Namco’s long-awaited follow-up in the flight combat series, has been doing pretty well since launch. Bandai Namco Southeast Asia recently announced on Twitter that it has sold 500,000 units in Asia. This was in the first month of its release.
Though the publisher hasn’t announced official sales numbers, Media Create sales in Japan revealed that 202,379 units were sold within the first week. It also did very well in the United Kingdom as well, debuting at 2nd place in the Gfk Chart-Track/UKIE top ten for the week ending January 19th. It also marked the biggest launch for the series ever in the UK, which itself is a significant milestone.
