There’s been an embarrassment of riches in the fighting games genre these last few years with releases such as Mortal Kombat 11, Guilty Gear Strive, and the ongoing support for Street Fighter 5. Another major release a few years ago was Bandai Namco’s Soulcalibur 6, and the game certainly seems to be doing very well for itself.
Bandai Namco recently took to Twitter via the series’ official account and confirmed that Soulcalibur 6 has sold over 2 million units worldwide. The game launched nearly three years ago in October of 2018, so the pace of its sales certainly doesn’t compare to something like, say, the aforementioned Mortal Kombat 11- but it’s still an impressive accomplishment.
Soulcalibur 6 is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In our review of the game, we awarded it a score of 9/10, saying, “Smart gameplay refinements, a ton of content, the return of the original cast, and excellent teaching tools makes this the best Soulcalibur in years and prove that the soul still burns 20 years later.” You can read our full review through here.
