As you may know, Aksys is currently celebrating the third anniversary of the BlazBlue series in North America but it also happens to be the fourth year that the series has been in existence worldwide. Today Aksys Games announce that throughout the series’ lifetime they have sold 1.7 million copies of the game worldwide.
Of these worldwide sales, 800,000 of them happened to be in the United States alone. While not overly impressive compared to the numbers that Street Fighter’s recent releases have pulled in, this is still rather great news for a newcomer to the fighting game scene. Especially one with what began as a niche fanbase that has slowly grown over the years.
