Bravely Default Sales Reach 1 Million Worldwide


    Bravely Default has shipped 1 million copies worldwide, Square Enix have announced. The Nintendo 3DS RPG is viewed as one of the company’s more significant successes of late, and it looks like it now has the sales to back that claim up.


    Square said that Bravely Default has shipped 400,000 copies in Japan and 600,000 copies in other countries. That includes download copies sold. (However, Square did not specify how sales were broken down between Bravely Default and its updated edition, For the Sequel.)


    Earlier in the year, Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda stated that Bravely Default helped Square Enix’s Japanese division find its focus, by demonstrating that fans of Japanese RPGs exist worldwide, and that the genre still has a global market.


    A sequel to the game, Bravely Second, is currently in development for the Nintendo 3DS. A release date for the game has not yet been announced.
