Any new intellectual property has it hard these days, but Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
seems to be doing okay with 410,000 copies sold in the US since launching a couple months back. WPRI.com
reports the RPG from 38 Studios and Big Huge Games moved another 80,000 units in March, according to NPD data.
As NPD spokesman David Riley notes, it's "an impressive figure for just two months, no matter how you slice it."
It's even more impressive when one takes into consideration the data only covers the US and doesn't tally PC sales made through digital distribution networks (as EA recently stressed
). In that case, the Reckoning
portion of the Amalur franchise
is doing well for a new IP.
