The sequel will most likely push this over a million

It did sell over 1 mil including the Xbox sales. I dont know if it made money though, since it was a very long game, and voice acting from Patrick Steward along must have been expensive. And i dont know what sales numbers constitute financial success.

Sadly most of these sales are from the bargain bin. Fantastic game that underperformed so much, a true flop. It's a memorable game too. Most games get erased from my memory quickly but not this one. Can't wait for a sequel.

People knew about it, they just didnt care. THe fans didnt like that it didnt feel like a Castlevania game. the GOW type fans (including me) felt that it wasnt as polished as that game. I loved it, the story and characters were great, it looked good, it played good. I dont know what the hell happened
