The latest fighting game in the Naruto series has been a hit. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations, which received pretty decent to good reviews (we liked it, giving it an 8.6 out of 10), has shipped over one million units worldwide, with over 500,000 copies sold, Namco Bandai Games announced in a press release on Friday.
Since its Japanese and worldwide launch on Feb. 2011 and March 2012, respectively, a total of 580,000 copies of NS: UNSG have been sold, with 160,000 copies sold in Japan and Asia, and a more impressive 420,000 sold in North America and Europe.
“I am very pleased to announce today that we have successfully shipped over 1 million units of the game worldwide. As NARUTO Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 had previously also shipped over 1 million units, I would really want to thank all of the fans here,” said Ultimate Ninja Storm series’ producer Yusuke Sasaki in the press release. “Thanks to all the fans from all over the world who bought the game, I am very pleased to be able to announce this great news. But at the same time, I feel more responsibility to the fans.”
Continuing, Sasaki said: “Also, we have announced the latest instalment of the Ultimate Ninja Storm series, called NARUTO Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Everyone involved in this project is doing their best to satisfy all the fans from all over the world. So please stay tuned for the latest game.”
