Switch-exclusive Octopath Traveler has now shipped one million copies worldwide, making the game one of the best-selling titles on the system.

The turn-based RPG has only been around for three weeks, releasing worldwide on 13th July, so this milestone has been reached incredibly quickly for a game that many would consider to be a rather niche title. Nintendo has shared the news on Twitter, stating that the developers at Square Enix would like to thank fans and customers for making this possible

In some ways, this actually comes as little surprise; we've been hearing multiple stories of the game completely selling out in Japan, and it even managed to secure a number three spot in the UK charts in its first week. It's pretty safe to say that its performing just as well, if not much better, than originally expected - which is obviously great news indeed.
