Fire Emblem: Awakening may have been the Fire Emblem game to help the franchise break through outside of Japan, but there's a new king of the hill for the franchise.
Nintendo's latest financial data has confirmed that Fire Emblem: Three Houses managed to move 3.02 million units worldwide, and that tally comes from June 2020. There's no doubt that total will continue to climb as well.
For those wondering, Fire Emblem: Awakening managed to sell 2.94 million units worldwide. Without that success, it's quite unlikely Fire Emblem: Three Houses would have been able to set this new record.
