Nier: Automata Continues To Sell Well

Nier: Automata Continues To Sell Well

Months after its release, Nier: Automata is continuing to surpass sales expectations. Through its official Twitter account, it was announced that Nier: Automata has sold 1.5 million combined units.

The figure combines the numbers of physical units shipped with digital copies sold. It’s worth mentioning that this is up from 1 million combined copies sold in April, with more than 500,000 of those sales coming from Japan and Asia alone. The title is available for both the PC and PS4, but these numbers were not broken down by platform.


While reporting sales figures isn’t uncommon, Nier: Automata garnered special attention when this unassuming sequel turned out to be a sleeper hit. When it was released, it had a couple things working against it. Although it was a AAA title, JRPGs often struggle to gain ground in the western market. This combined with a release date pinned between the releases of Horizon: Zero Dawn and Breath of the Wild, and it’s not difficult to see why many were surprised when it surpassed sales expectations in its first month.

Its success is due in no small part to the quality of the game itself. Nier: Automata has received almost unanimous acclaim, with most outlets giving the game very high marks. We also sang its praises, but were more generous in our review, giving the title a perfect score.

As the word continues to get out about Nier: Automata, those sales figures will likely increase; and this title deserves all the attention it gets. Those who haven’t given the game a shot should check out its demo or just take the plunge. Aside from the excellent main game, there is also a ridiculously named DLC that allows players to challenge Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda. Who could ask for anything more?

NieR: Automata is available now for PC and PS4.
