Dark Souls has reached sales of over 2.3 million since launching back in October 2011. The figures come from a presentation held during a conference in Japan, headed up by From Software's Executive Director, Eiichi Nakajima.
In total, Dark Souls has sold 2,367,000 units since release, with 692,000 of those being the 'Prepare to Die Edition', which bundles the game with the 'Artorias of the Abyss' add-on.
“Dark Souls (PS3) 375,000 units in Japan and overseas (PS3, Xbox 360) for a total of 1,300,000 and 1,675,000. Subsequently, 137,000 sold foreign (360, PC PS3, Xbox) to sell a total of 692,000 of the 555,000 units, including the additional content Dark Souls: Artorias of the Abyss edition (PS3, PC) 2,367,000 accumulated.”
Not a bad performance all in all. There'll be more death awaiting when Dark Souls II releases on Xbox 360 in late 2013/early 2014. You can check out the latest trailer below.
