Bravely Default Flutters Gracefully Past The One Million Copies Sold Mark
Posted by Damien McFerran
More than half that total sold outside of Japan
Square Enix has revealed that its 3DS JRPG Bravely Default has sold one million copies worldwide across physical and digital distribution systems, with 600,000 of those occurring outside of Japan.
The success of the game has had a dramatic effect on Square Enix's future plans; Bravely Default is a title geared towards a Japanese audience, yet it has found critical and commercial success elsewhere in the world — leading president Yosuke Matsuda to state that his company will focus less on the "global aspect" with forthcoming games and instead create more traditional JRPGs.
Bravely Second is due out in Japan this year, and while the western release hasn't been confirmed, such robust sales should mean that it's almost certain to be sold globally.
