Bayonetta Breaks A Million Units Sold

By Spencer . February 5, 2010 . 2:28am

imageSega’s latest financial report included sales data for Bayonetta. Platinum Games’ climax action game rung up 1,100,000 million units worldwide on both platforms.


But, Bayonetta wasn’t Sega’s top selling game in their third fiscal quarter. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games was with 5,670,000 copies sold on the Wii and Nintendo DS.


Football Manger 2010 took the number three spot with 740,000 in unit sales and the Japan-only Phantasy Star Portable 2 did well with 540,000 units.

    W-when you say “Japan-only,” you mean just for now, right?

    I’m glad the game did well (right?) as it deserves it. Godly action game, and this would be a Platinum game going platinum :) Still trying to get all the costumes for Bayo-sis.

    I am very happy about this news. Hopefully Kamiya can stay in charge of the direction of this IP.

    There is one reason why everyone bought the game her clothes are made from her hair!

  • Glad to see Bayonetta getting attention, as it deserves it. I’m eager to see what Kamiya does next.

  • This makes me happy. Bayonetta rocks and deserves to get sales! Love it!

    Bayonetta really deserves the sales.Anyone who likes action games should buy it with closed eyes.
