Bandai Namco has just released Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 and the game has already shipped over 1.3 million copies worldwide.
Bandai Namco announced the milestone via a press release that came out today. In terms of the regional breakdown, the most copies were shipped to North America.
In North America, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 shipped 620,000 copies. This is slightly up on the 550,000 copies that were shipped over to Europe.
In Japan, the game shipped over 80,000 while it shipped over 84,000 copies in other parts of Asia. For an exact number, total shipments for the game are 1,334,000 million copies worldwide.
The game has quite a way to go if it wants to beat last year’s Dragon Ball Xenoverse. Bandai Namco recently revealed that Dragon Ball Xenoverse shipped over 3.13 million copies after 10 months on sale.
We’ll just have to wait and see if Naruto and the gang are able to beat Goku. The Naruto franchise has a lot of fans, but the Dragon Ball series is historically more popular.
A thing that can work in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4’s favor is that the game itself has been well received so far. Apart from the less-than-stellar PC port, the console versions run fine and are still playable.
