Fire Emblem: Awakening hits 1.79 million sold worldwide

Coming from a promotional page for Fire Emblem If...

Fire Emblem - Nintendo's SRPG series that has been beloved by fans for 25 years. The most recent entry, Fire Emblem Awakening, sold 1.79 million copies worldwide (as of December 2014), and now, this world-beloved series' latest entry, "Fire Emblem if", will be released to celebrate the 25th anniversary.

Before Fire Emblem: Awakening came out, Nintendo said that the series might be taking a break for awhile if Awakening didn't sell well. It seems like the perfect storm of support came through, really opening up a market for the series outside of Japan. Quite a nice number to pull in, especially when considering the genre Fire Emblem falls into. Glad to see things going so well for Awakening. It paved the way for the future of the franchise!

Awesome! Awesome series deserves awesome sales.



Glad to hear that it sold very well.

Well deserved. Damn fine game.

Interesting. Still baffles me when companies like Square Enix say that 1million game sales are considered "bad" for their franchises. Just proof that if you have a small budget and a great game, even 1-2 million is a huge success.

Great sales for a great game.
