It bombed in Japan but did
alright in the west. It just failed to
persuade many of the original fans on
X360 and PS3 into buying a Wii U.

And
that depends on what you classify as
stylish action game because NieR
Automata already outsold it by a good
margin.

Wasn't this over a million at one
point? Digital pushed it past.

@Kyuu, I don't know, given its platform
and the fact that stylish action games
like this aren't doing that well these
days, it seems to done a good job. I
mean it has easily outsold DmC and
outside of licensed games like Batman or
Shadow of Mordor, I can't think of a
stylish action game not named
Assassin's Creed that has sold better
on any current gen console.

Pretty poor, if expected, sales.

Still similar sales to the 360 version
of the original
