From Software’s infamously difficult action RPG, Dark Souls III, has hit a new milestone and has shipped 3 million units worldwide. This new number pushes the total worldwide shipments of the entire Dark Souls franchise past 13 million, publisher Bandai Namco has announced. In a press release that has been translated from Japanese by Gematsu, it was revealed the third entry in the series proved to be the most popular in North America and Europe, where it has shipped 1.5 million and 1 million copies respectively, so far. In Japan and Asia, it shipped 500,000. Just to put it in perspective though, the original Dark Souls, which was released in 2011, and its post-launch expansion Artorias of the Abyss, sold more than 5.6 million units. However, Dark Souls II sales, meanwhile only reached over 2.9 million worldwide. This puts Dark Souls III ahead of its predecessor but not it’s grandfather game. Will it surpass the original game?
