French Bread-developed fighting-game Melty Blood: Type Lumina has got off to a solid start, with its gameplay, unique mechanics, and solid netcode having received plenty of praise. It seems the same has been reflected in the game’s sales as well.
As of March 2022, the game has surpassed total sales of 270,000 units worldwide (via Siliconera). In contrast, during its launch weekend in Japan, the game sold around 11,600 units on the Nintendo Switch, and 18,833 units on the PlayStation 4, totaling 30,497 retail copies (excluding digital sales) for the week.
One might think the numbers are not very impressive- however, given that the fighting game series has been predominately very niche among the community, the sales numbers are certainly decent.
Earlier, the game received two free DLC characters on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.. Melty Blood: Type Lumina will also be making its EVO debut this year, having been included in the tournament’s lineup of games.
