Castlevania sales “remarkable”

According to Konami’s president, Shinji Hirano, sales of Konami’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow have been “remarkable”.

Although actual figures are not yet known, Konami has confirmed that over a million copies have been shipped across the US and Europe. With Lords of Shadow due for release in Japan in December, and with Mr Hideo Kojima’s name on the box no less, expect those figures to improve quite a bit towards the end of the year.

With Mercury Steam already hard at work on the sequel and Konami’s positive response to early sales, I’m sure we’ll be seeing quite a bit more of the “reinvented” franchise over the next few years.
