Capcom’s Ben Judd has declared Bionic Commando: Rearmed a huge success, announcing first week sales of over 130,000 units.
“In the last Top Secret podcast we had all the members guess how many units we would sell in one week across all 3 skus. While I have to admit, throwing out a number like 100,000 seemed pretty overzealous after seeing how hard digital titles are to sell, I still hoped we could reach that lofty goal. Boy, did I miss the mark,” said Judd. “7 days – over 130,000 units.”
Given that we hear about retail launches that sell in the multi-millions, 130,000 units may not sound that impressive, but Judd notes we shouldn’t be thinking this way.
“That may not seem impressive compared to package titles that sell in the millions but compared to other digital titles that is a friggin JUGGERNAUT!” he explained.
It’s great to see Rearmed doing so well, which we hope will pave the way for further retro remakes.
