250k was the necessary amount to save the series. Will Awakening be able to reach ten times that amount by selling 2.5m copies? I'm sure that counting digital it reached the 2m already, so it's not out of reach.

If it was at 1.79 million as of December of last year. It's sold an additional 200k, and that's just with physical, so add (insert digital here) and this game has safely reached 2 million as of now!
And for a game that was going to be the death of the series if it didn't crack at least 250k, it has cracked 8x the necessary mark!
What an unbelievable comeback!!!

The debs must be extremely happy. They said Fire Emblem was going to be done if this game wouldn't sell satisfactory. Then, sales were amazing. It's 400k over the former best selling game in the franchise, that's a 50% increase! Not to mention the increase over it's immediate predecessors!

agree with tbone51, PoR and RD are great and shouldn't be missed (they have some of the best maps and characters... -character development can be more crucial for the endgame- ....,if possible, don't play them on the easiest setting..., and definitly play the NGC version first)

...if/when they make a FE:A sequel, hope they use the same artist and composer... ( and make a story & character "connection" like with PoR & RD, would be great...)

I think a big reason for the success of this game, when it reaches a million as the first in it's series, is due to the inclusion of Sacred Stones in the ambassador program. It got the franchise on my radar at least! The person that decided to include that game is a genius.

@ Vinnie - I own all the Fire Emblems GBA on. I imported Hero's of Light & Shadow and Sword of Seals and play them on a english translated ROM. Amazing franchise, I might import SNES games and play English Tranlated ROM's, but SNES and NES are not region free, I wouldn't be able to play the original Japanese cartridge.

I'm really happy that Fire Emblem: Awakening has found such success. It will be the first entry to eclipse the 1 million barrier - Amazing. I for one was new to the series and I'm shocked by the quality and depth it has to offer. With the amount of coverage and acclaim the Fire Emblem series has earned, Nintendo can now count it amongst its B-tier franchises.

you do realize I said FE "series"....., look at the top 8 FE sales, why is it always so sold so much less in the EU? when J-RPGs often kind of sell near the same amount in the US and EU resp. not such a big difference as with the FE series.... (and of course, FE Awakening EU sales wasn't out at the time)

if Journey and TWD can be nominated as "GOTY", then handheld games should be nominated too..., FE:A for GOTY!

Undertracked by 44k. Nintendo confirmed 240k for USA alone, Canada usually adds 10% more sales (since we have about 10% USA's population, and similar spending habits, at least on video games).

The game is at 264,000 for North America, which puts global sales at 860-870k. With Europes launch in a few weeks, this game will be the first in the series to break 1 million.

You guys think this is over-tracked? When I went to buy the game in February, EB Games was sold out, and not just one, I made a thread and most people said that their local retailers were sold out, and there was a 2 week wait for more inventory.

Plus Fire Emblem in Americas, has a history of either matching, or outperforming Japans sales. Right now America's numbers are 50% of Japans, but if this game sold out, that makes no sense.

It will easily break 1m once everyone can get a physical copy that are looking for one. It probably is already past or close to passing 1m if you include e shop sales that VGC doesn't track. For instance Animal Crossing New Leaf is already pass 3m but VGC has it under 3 since they don't track eshop sales.
