White Knight Chronicles Series Hits The Million Plateau
It's a great achievement but here's an interesting question: is the number higher or lower than you expected?
As reported by Siliconera, Sony Computer Entertainment public relations representative Taku Nishijima recently Tweeted that the White Knight Chronicles titles have surpassed the 1 million mark. This includes all released games in the series- White Knight Chronicles, White Knight Chronicles EX Edition, White Knight Chronicles International Edition (the US/EU version), White Knight Chronicles 2 (launched in Japan last year), and White Knight Chronicles Origins (for the PSP; it'll release in Europe, too). The total sales tally will rise when WKC2 arrives in North America this summer but can Level-5's franchise be considered a rip-roaring success? Or does that million seem lower than you might've thought? The Japanese really tend to like their RPGs, after all; it'd be interesting to see the Japanese number...
We're certainly hoping the sequel sells well when it launches here; otherwise, they may not opt for an overseas release next time around.
