Atlus announced that 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim has surpassed 200,000 copies sold in Japan (via Gematsu). Note that this includes both physical and digital sales. Given that it was initially reported in March that the PS4 adventure/tactics game hybrid sold 400,000 worldwide, this latest sales figure shows just how much steam the game is building both at home and abroad.
The latest game from 2D animation specialists Vanillaware, 13 Sentinels is the result of a six-year development cycle that started with a planned Vita version that was eventually scrapped in favor of polishing up the eventual PS4 version.
13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim released in 2019 in Japan, and 2020 worldwide to glowing reviews for its innovative approach to storytelling and tactical combat. Word of mouth propelled it to gaining a following and the eventual 400,000 copies sold.
