Dark Souls has sold 2,367,000 since its release in 2011, it was revealed during a conference in Japan.

According to a presentation headed by From Software’s executive director, Eiichi Nakajima, approximately 692,000 units moved were the Prepare To Die Edition.

Here’s the unit breakdown per Gpara and Livedoor which attended the event:

“Dark Souls (PS3) 375,000 units in Japan and overseas (PS3, Xbox 360) for a total of 1,300,000 and 1,675,000. Subsequently, 137,000 sold foreign (360, PC PS3, Xbox) to sell a total of 692,000 of the 555,000 units, including the additional content Dark Souls: Artorias of the Abyss edition (PS3, PC) 2,367,000 accumulated.”

While the game originally released on PS3 before moving to PC and Xbox 360, the original was not released on 360 in Japan. From Software said during the presentation Dark Souls 2 would be made available on Xbox 360 at launch in Japan.

Dark Souls 2 will be released on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 either in late 2013 or early 2014.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    I am sure they did, we wont be getting the sequel if it hadn’t. even demon souls made some money that encouraged them to work on dark souls.
    I just hope they don’t bet the farm with dark souls 2.. cause that would def make em go more mainstream.

    love this game, love From Soft. If this were square or capcom or any other big publisher/dev, 2.3 million units sold even within the first month of release would be considered a failure. That says a lot about Namco/From!
