0

Naruto and Tekken are valuable global properties for Namco Bandai; both series helped bring in some of the company’s highest sales numbers last year. Tekken 6, released on consoles back in late 2009, sold 1.15 million copies worldwide this past fiscal year. Meanwhile, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 sold 1.1 million copies.

 

Meanwhile, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West has sold 730,000 copies, worldwide, to date, with Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 at 580,000.

 

Like many other companies, Namco Bandai’s fiscal year ends on March 31st every year. Despite the fact that Gods Eater Burst released on March 15th in the U.S. (and 18th in Europe), only Japanese sales figures for the game have been provided, coming in at 470,000 units.
