    1. Is that 1 million across platforms? Or just on switch? Since it was on PS4 and Switch (I think Windows too) I feel like 1 million is not a huge number if that’s all the platforms. I know its an RPG and they don’t sell as well as other genres, but these are huge install bases.

      1. It more likely has to do with the older generations that were into this franchise helped these sales.

        Sadly I feel the Mana series of games is lost upon this ages gamers.

        Secret of Mana will always be #1 rpg imo. I own it several times over, and still own my working SNES cart.

      2. Despite the big install bases there are actually very few games that actually sell a million or more copies, so this is very good for a remake of an older RPG. This game would’ve had a tiny budget compared to some of square enix’s other games like final fantasy or kingdom hearts so you have to keep that in mind too. Not every game has to sell 10 million + copies to be considered successful.

  1. 1 million across all platforms is pretty good for a niche game and it’s not like they were expecting CoD sales. 1 million is usually the goal for JRPGs but some settle for half a million.
