For me, Dark Souls 3 is still the best (full) game I've played this year. I think it's a very cool iteration of the franchise, and well worth your time if you can hop in.
It's proven popular with audiences too it would seem. In a press release (translated by by Gematsu), it's been announced that the game has shipped 3 million copies to retailers. That is 1.5 for America, 1 million for Europe and 500k for Japan.
This is just shipped numbers, so it's not necessarily bought by the customer, but it is still a decent indication. This isn't Call of Duty big by any stretch of the imagination, but hardly anything to sniff at either. The game deserves all the success it gets by my account, so I hope it continue to sell well.
