Bravely Default passes 1 million copies sold, 600k in western markets
Good news for US JRPG fans! It has been revealed that Bravely Default is a huge success in the west. The game has sold over 1 million copies worldwide. 400K of this came in Japan and 600k stem from the west (US/EU).
Square Enix seems to be pleasantly surprised with the success of the game in the west. Bravely Second, a sequel, is already planned for the 3DS. Hopefully solid sales of RPGs like Bravely Default and Fire Emblem on 3DS convince third parties (FE is first party, I know) that they can bring big, inventive RPGs back to handhelds instead of porting every old RPG to mobile phones.
