Not everyone wants their hand held throughout a game. And some are tough enough to handle what From Software can dish out. How's about you?
The developer has confirmed that the punishing yet widely acclaimed and beloved Dark Souls has sold over 2.3 million units worldwide since the title's release in October 2011.
Executive director Eiichi Nakajim revealed the number during a recent event in Japan, and it's almost double the 1.19 million copies that were sold as of March 31, 2012. At the time, publisher Namco Bandai thanked Dark Souls for helping the company have its strongest fiscal year since 2008. What this means is that in the past year, the game has remained a solid seller, as more and more gamers are interested in testing the waters. It's a great title and worthy of that attention, and it's definitely rewarding…if you can conquer its many obstacles. That's why difficult games are so satisfying!
The sequel is currently in development and it's scheduled to arrive on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, presumably later this year.
