that really outstanding considering how niche this game is.
majiebeast  +   231d ago
Yeah best selling game Vanillaware has ever produced.
miyamoto  +   230d ago
I guess I have to thank the haters for giving this game publicity and great exposure to the public eye.

Congratulations Vanillaware and Atlus for picking this game up like you did Demon's Souls.

sequel maybe on its way!

Level 78 Infernal difficulty!

Congrats to Vanillaware and Atlus, this was a great game that deserves alot of sales.
Knushwood Butt  +   230d ago
Yeah, I'm very happy for them to have success with what many would consider is a retro title.

Let's have more in the future.

Havent played it but the word of mouth was crazy for this game. I wonder if the sex appeal or the gameplay were the main driving force for the sales
One_Eyed_Wizard  +   231d ago
Definitely gameplay. There is no sex appeal at all in this game. The boobs and butts are so exagerated it's more of a turn-off.

The art is still amazing if you can get past that and so is the gameplay. It's also rather cheap. I'd say if you're looking for a good couch-coop experience it's probably one of the best game for that on PS3 right now.

The only downside is there's a lot of griding involved if you keep playing after beating the story... which is pretty much the reason I quit but it's still an amazing game.

Tell that to people that think Kim Kardasian is hot.
Bhuahahaha  +   231d ago
yeah great game.
grinding is okay to me. its way better than making it some kind of dlc a.k.a micro-transaction

i wish if theres even a sequel they tone down those tits a little

Gameplay, beautifull graphic / artstyle, and amazing music: That's the reasons why people bought Vanillaware games.

Look at it this way Atlus is now owned by Sega. Sega commented they would allow Atlus to work on some of their IP's that have collected dust. Bring us a proper sequel to Golden Axe. If anyone could do it, its this development team right here.
Chrono  +   231d ago
Just saying, Atlus doesn't own this IP, they only published the game.
Eyeco  +   231d ago
Golden Axe on the PS2 was a travesty, that said 3D Beat em Ups have worked The Warriors was an excellent example, but if anything I would love Atlus to do either Phantasy Star or Shining Force.
Phoceenatic  +   231d ago
Dont remind me of that crap lol It didnt even have the iconic title theme, which by the way the remixed version on Sonic Racing is epic!

Blank  +   230d ago
Wow excellent intelligent comment vanillaware+golden axe=proper revival!
EmptySkyForm  +   231d ago
I loved this game. Clocked in over 200 hours. Everyone is lvl 99 with almost the best weapons.
kingPoS  +   231d ago
I play this more often now. GTA online's constant bugs has steered me right back to a game I now regret shelving.

Even with the nerf. Amazon is still OP. Not that I'm complaining. I really love my Amazon. <3
Well deserved. Wishing the best that they reach 1m. ^_^
miyamoto  +   230d ago
Loving my Amazon too. I named her name is Tyris Flare!
tarbis  +   230d ago
Lemme guess. Golden Axe.
No need to guess. My Amazon's name is Tyris too. XD
Have a bubble and agree. Bro. =D

Title is misleading, it should be shipped 800,000 copies, not sold.
Nujabes_  +   231d ago
For the publisher, shipped=Sold.
HighResHero  +   231d ago
That is all you have to say about this amazing title Green?

This was my most over-hyped game of 2013. Not to say it is bad but I really made myself believe it was going to be a lot better than it really was.
iWishTifaWasReal  +   231d ago
at first i thought it says " sold over 800,000 titties" LOL
P_Bomb  +   231d ago
Came out of nowhere for me, but once I learned it was like all the arcade beat em ups that I grew up on mixed with some light RPG elements and gorgeous production values, it became a buy. Got the free art book, made a couple new friends online, just a solid surprise.
Inception  +   231d ago
Really loved this game and have a plan to get Muramasa Rebirth after i finished with YS Celceta. Good work Vanillaware & Kamitani-san ^^d
Keyser  +   231d ago
I really enjoy the game and over-sexualized art style. I'm an adult, not an adolescent. It should be what the artist of the game intended it to be. Everything doesn't have to look like Wii Sports or Knack to be fun. Video games aren't just for kids. Oh, and some guys like huge breasts and big butts. Elvira used to be over-sexualized. Some liked her, some didn't. You can't please everybody all the time. To each his/her own.
Inception  +   230d ago
Well said sir ^^d

I hope devs don't follow what the feminazis wants by restricting what the devs really wants to create in their game.
Grimhammer00  +   230d ago
I loved every minute of this plat. Incredibly deep and fun side scroll RPG. The art style is oversexalized because artist intended it that way. We gamers aren't all children....and just because there's big covered up boobs...in no way diminishes a great game as this.
DCfan  +   230d ago
Congrats for Atlus and Vanillaware. I still have to beat Muramasa on Vita, decided to hold on Dragon's crown to beat that first

Wonder what's the % for sold to end-consumers.
