Castlevania sales “remarkable”

According to Konami’s president, Shinji Hirano, sales of Konami’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow have been “remarkable”.

Although actual figures are not yet known, Konami has confirmed that over a million copies have been shipped across the US and Europe. With Lords of Shadow due for release in Japan in December, and with Mr Hideo Kojima’s name on the box no less, expect those figures to improve quite a bit towards the end of the year.

Read an article last week that they have passed 1 million copies. That's damn good being todays market, and that the production value was not the highest.

This is personally my game of the year. Had a blast with it and I love the reboot they did and cannot wait for a sequel. For those who have played it through and seen the epilogue, it was freaking amazing!

Is it wrong to say I enjoyed black ops campaign more than Castlevania? It was a sensational military fantasy and a grim guilty pleasure :/

Good for them, as along as they are happy with it. It looks like a fun game (played the demo).
