The series has "truly reinvented itself" and these "remarkable sales" stand as a "true testament" to the game's developers. Not out in Japan yet.
"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," he continued. Lords of Shadow retails in Japan next month.
The PS3 version was tragically hit with crippling bugs that Konami was forced to address as soon as it could. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was developed by Spanish-based MercurySteam with creative input from Metal Gear Solid's Hideo Kojima.
