Dark Souls ships 1.5 million worldwide

Dark Souls has shipped 1.5 million units since it launched at the beginning of last month, Namco Bandai and From Software said in Japan this morning.

Shipment numbers were broken down by region, with North America the most supplied with 620,000 units, followed by Europe with 470,000 units.

Japan came next with 370,000 units - the RPG launched there at the end of September - with "Asia" coming home at the 40,000 mark.

The game - published by Namco Bandai everywhere except Japan, where From did the honours - launched with strong critical success; it has an 89% average on MetaCritic for both PS3 and 360.

Thanks, Andriasang.
