So far, the most recent entry in the Souls franchise has shipped over 1.2 million copies, Bandai Namco has said.
These numbers only factor in the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. As the PC version was released after the end of the financial year, Bandai Namco has yet to announce PC numbers.
Dark Souls 2 marks the best selling title for Bandai Namcro, with Vita title God Eater 2 coming in at second place with 700,000 units shipped in Japan.
The first Dark Souls has to date sold 1.3 million copies internationally.
