Total shipments and digital sales for Nioh have exceeded three million worldwide, publisher Koei Tecmo and developer Team Ninja announced.
Nioh first launched worldwide for PlayStation 4 in February 2017, followed by PC via Steam in November 2017.
The sequel, Nioh 2, is due out for PlayStation 4 on March 12 in Japan and March 13 worldwide.
In related news, developer Team Ninja studio head Yosuke Hayashi told Eurogamer.pt in a recent interview that just like Nioh was a new property created for PlayStation 4, Team Ninja wants to create another new property for PlayStation 5.
“I believe that a new console will bring new opportunities and we would like to create a new game, a new intellectual property for PlayStation 5,” Hayashi said. “We created the Nioh series for PS4 and we would like to do the same for PS5.”
