Forums - Gaming Discussion - Senran Kagura series worldwide sales top 1.65 million

                        

Total worldwide sales for the Senran Kagura series have exceeded 1.65 million, series producer Kenichiro Takaki said on Twitter.

“I forgot to mention it at the event the other day,” Takaki said, referring the the Senran Kagura New Title Presentation on August 1 that saw several Senran Kagura related announcements, “but the Senran Kagura series, which at the beginning they said would be amazing if it even sold 30,000 units, has sold over 1,650,000 copies worldwide in five years. Sales aren’t everything, but I’ll be happy if it sells more… It would be nice to get some pocket money, wouldn’t it?”

The original Senran Kagura first launched for 3DS in Japan in 2011. It has since seen several sequels and spin-offs across 3DS, PS Vita, PlayStation 4, PC, and smartphones.

That sounds really low though. Aren't there like 500 games in the series?

heh

Lol, I love guys like this. He has such a clear passion for tits, and games. It's exactly what i'd expect at an early Gainax conference xD

I'm in a Senran Kagura group on PS4 and it's a matter of time before we all go to jail. I don't know how to quit a group but the content there.... It's not good.

Deserves even more than that. The series is great.

Worse than some of the avatars that have floated around here over the years? Ha. It's super easy to quit groups on the Vita, and I've done it on PS4 too. If I make it home today I'll PM you on how to do it. Can't remember off hand.

On topic. That's good I guess. It's a solid series from my experience. Better than I expected. Sales are hogtied to some degree by it's racy content of course, which extends beyond the visual sex-punch in the face. The dialogue and themes within are quite racy as well. Bon Appetit has stuff in it that would cause a massive shitstorm if it was on a platform more mainstream than the Vita.



Chinese food for breakfast.

6 games so far to be exact (not including the mobile one), though one of those 6 hasn't released in the west yet (releases next month). That comes out to an average of 275k sales per game so far. So yeah, it's not exactly lighting up the sales charts, which is a shame imo.

I agree, it seems to be mindless fun from what it looks like. I will soon find out for sure on PS4/Vita =P

Wonder if his numbers include digital.
