Bandai Namco announced total worldwide sales for Elden Ring have surpassed 12 million units. Sales for Elden Ring in Japan have also surpassed 1 million units. Additionally, the president and CEO of Bandai Namco Entertainment, Yasuo Miyakawa, has expressed interest in expanding the Elden Ring brand. However, Bandai Namco has yet to elaborate on how it plans to incorporate other styles of media into Elden Ring as a brand.
Elden Ring has become the biggest new IP launch in Europe since 2016, unseating Ubisoft’s The Division. Additionally, the title had sold more than a quarter of a million units within Japan during its first week of release. And this only accounted for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game, with the full number now available.
Elden Ring wouldn’t be the first FromSoftware IP to receive extended pieces of media. Bandai Namco released a series of official Dark Souls comics, following the global success of the series. Additionally, Bloodborne, a non-Bandai Namco-related IP, received a comic set within the universe of the game.
Elden Ring is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. You can read our review of the PC version, which includes PlayStation 5 impressions.
