Team Ninja’s action RPG is enjoying steady sales.
Great games don’t always sell well, sadly, which is why it’s always great to hear about an excellent title enjoying strong sales over a prolonged period of time. One game that has been doing so pretty much constantly since its 2017 launch is Team Ninja ad Koei Tecmo’s Soulslike action RPG, Nioh.
Recently, during a livestream focused on its upcoming sequel (via Twinfinite), Nioh director Fumihiko Yasuda confirmed that game has has shipped nearly 3 million units worldwide since release- 2.95 million, to be precise. Nioh’s sales stood at 2.75 million units shipped in September last year, which means that the game is enjoying steady, strong sales on a pretty consistent bases. Given that its sequel is right around the corner, that’s a bit surprising.
Speaking of the sequel, Nioh 2 is out exclusively for the PS4 on March 13. Koei Tecmo recently released a new trailer and a bunch of new screenshots for the game, so make sure to give those a look through the links.
