I wonder if it has a chance outselling Bayonetta ps3+x360 or Metal Gear Rising. It's showing some impressive legs.

It should, its a far better than game than both of them and at the pace its selling it has a good chance of doing so.

Literally my favorite game of all time, it deserves another 1.5 million honestly.

SanAndreasX (on 31 May 2017)

That's awesome. Glad to see Platinum doing well, was worried they would get sucked into licensed games. Hopefully they will do more RPGs.

What I want to know is if this is good or bad. What was their initial goal?

Dreamcaster (on 30 May 2017)

Most likely very good considering the first game couldn't break 1 million.

It sold more than they expected when it reached one million, so this is far better than they had ever anticipated.
