Demon’s Souls may have been Atlus USA’s top selling title, but 3D Dot Game Heroes sales pixel exploded way past the publisher’s projections. Atlus USA estimated 25,000 units. 3D Dot Game Heroes actually sold 160,000 units, greater than six times expectations.

Both excellent games and deserve every sale they get :)

But, I fear Atlus has been weak with localizations lately, despite all the money they've got thanks to From titles.

On a side note, since Atlus has been doing so well with From Software titles, perhaps this means they'll localize Armored Core 5 themselves?

Because oh god, I hope somebody picks it up after it releases in Japan.

3D Dot Game Heroes is a fun 8,5/10 game.
It was also somewhat needed for the PS3 as it stands out from the crowd of other great games in terms of gameplay and style.

Demon's Souls looks very awesome! But haven't bought it yet.
It sounds very hard to play and like it takes much time.

I hope they both sell even better.

This news made mt day:D
This game is so underrated, probably my greatest next gen experience after guns of the patriots. It really aggrevates me how people write this off as a zelda clone yet happily accept one shooter after another.

I mean if they like the 2d zeldas enouch to consider this a clone then shouldnt they be happy to geet more games that plays like that?

Armored core is also a underrated game, thought it looked like crap but then i borrowed a friends copy and found out what a thrilling game it really is, really gets the adrenaline pumpig.

Havent tried deamons souls but i highly suspects im not up to the task.

GoldPS32740d ago

Great news. You can bet Atlus will keep supporting the PS3 with more games.

tinybigman2740d ago

own both and they are both awesome.

AceofStaves2740d ago

Great news for Atlus. They've been my favourite publisher for the past few years. It's great to see them succeed.

tacosRcool2740d ago

Gonna go and grab both of them soon!

I wish more people knew how good 3D Dot Game Heroes is, I really need to finish it.

I went down to buy it on day 1, biggest gaming store in my town got 2 copies in and 0 pre-orders... the. hell.

Godmars2902740d ago

Apparently there's a princess in need of saving but I couldn't find her...

(And yeah, pretty sure I gt that figured out, so no help from the peanut gallery, thank you very much...:p)

@Zatrox: where the heck is AC5? been at least two years since anyone talked about it.

zatrox2740d ago

It's From, so it doesn't really surprises me there hasn't been much talk about AC5 nor hype, aside from a trailer or two. After all, that's normal for them.

It'll probably release this year (Although I doubt it) or next year in Japan.

God knows when we'll get it here in America.

eggbert2740d ago

Demon's souls was great, but I can't platinum the game because of the GODDAMN PURE BLADESTONE.

3D dot game heroes is also fun, although I am currently only on the desert temple. The graphics are pretty cool though.

bananlol2740d ago

The desert theme music is really something:D

Stealth20k2740d ago

ELite_Ghost2740d ago

TheColbertinator2740d ago

eggbert2740d ago

Online Amazon is probably $20 or under.

jagstatboy2739d ago

I'm gonna use the $20 I'm getting from Amazon for pre-ordering Blank Ops to buy 3D Dot...will end up costing me only $10. Heck yes.
