Wow... that is impressive for just one region. I assume they mean just physical copies to, or correct me if i'm wrong.

I'd guess physical copies as it says "shipped", you don't ship a digital copy lol.

Wtf is this game anyway, another one of those monster hunter like rpgs?

Edit: Just looked into it and it's definitely something I'll be getting for my eventual PS Vita Tv.

Well `shipped` refers to how much the developer has technically `sold` in order for them to make money since that is how much stock retailers have bought from them.

It is possible this could include digital sales since those would be sales sold directly to consumers without the retailer as a middle man of sorts.

Either way, digital sales included or not, the sales are good so far for the game. Definitely means a sequel (or at least an expansion) is on the cards now.

So glad this game is getting localized, I hope PSO gets localized too.

I think its possible they will release a PS4 version and will probably localize all the versions together.
