DmC Devil May Cry is looking like a commercial failure at this point doing worse that Ni No Kuni as NPD February sales are leaking out as they usually do.
The company does not release official figures anymore but a reliable insider on GAF have revealed that the game has sold less than 50,000 on both platforms combined.
“Ni no kuni ~ 50k this month, and better than DMC (360+PS3),” he wrote.
This is looking exceedingly bad for Ninja Theory as a studio because they did manage to ship a game that the critics liked and is sitting in the 80s on Metacritic.
Capcom had already revised the forecast by more than 40% for the game and considering their initial target was 2 million units, it’s now at 1.2 million. Devil May Cry 4 sold 4 million units and such a fall in sales does not sound good for the franchise.
Ni No Kuni meanwhile is showing good legs and Level-5 should be happy with its international sales. He has also revealed that the Wii U has sold 66k units, which is a decent performance but quite low compared to the chart topper, Xbox 360.
