Konami’s said it’s shipped 1 million units of Castlevania: Lords of Shadown in North America and Europe. As for actual sales, however, the firm’s not saying.

“Castlevania has truly reinvented itself with its move to next gen platforms and we’re extremely pleased at the positive response we’ve seen toward Castlevania: Lords of Shadow globally, mainly due to the dedicated fans who have supported the series for so long,” said Konami president Shinji Hirano.

“The remarkable sales achieved in such a short time are a true testament of the work and dedication that went into this project, and we’re very grateful to have partnered with such fine talent in the rebirth of one of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.’s most successful franchises.”

The game released on October 5. A sequel’s strongly tipped to be in the works.
