PS5 Exclusive Rise of the Ronin Is Koei Tecmo's Best-Selling Game 1

Rise of the Ronin attracted largely muted reviews at launch, but like so many games that are overlooked by critics, it’s garnered a cult following. Many now believe this release is underrated – especially after public opinion has soured on the title that overshadowed it, Dragon’s Dogma 2. The good news for creator Koei Tecmo is that it is its best-selling title to date.

That’s according to director Fumihiko Yasuda, who stopped short of sharing any specific sales numbers with Japanese publication Denfaminico Gamer. Considering the game only launched in March on a single platform, that’s actually an impressive result, and Koei Tecmo will feel positive about the future, which is likely to include a PC port and discounts.

Do you think Rise of the Ronin deserves this success? Were you impressed with the open world action game when it launched? Draw your sword in the comments section below.
