Octopath Traveler Surpasses One Million Units Shipped


Square Enix has announced that combined total shipments and digital sales of its recently released role-playing game, Octopath Traveler, have surpassed one million units since its launch last month.

The news comes way of Square Enix via the following tweet from the game's official Twitter account:

It's important to note that shipped units does not equate to total sales. In other words, Octopath Traveler hasn't sold one million units, it has simply passed one million units shipped at retail and sold digitally.

Nonetheless, it's an impressive number when you consider the game only launched on July 13, less than a month ago. Further, that it launched exclusively to the Nintendo Switch, a console where games have been in hot-demand, but a console also with a smaller install base compared to other platforms.
