Nioh’s popularity had been growing steadily throughout the release of its several demos, and that popularity has translated to some solid sales numbers for the finished product so far. The game has only been available for a couple of weeks, but today we learn that the game has already sold over 1 million copies worldwide.

The news was announced by Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja, who further explained that these sales numbers include both digital and retail purchases. While it’s great news to hear that the game is doing well so far, the devs aren’t content with just that announcement. As a ways of saying thanks to the fans, they have revealed that they are giving away the Golden Nioh Armor in-game to all owners of the game for free.

The armor will be added to the game along with the 1.04 update, which also comes with several adjustments and bug fixes. The following are the complete patch notes:
