Thanks to strong sales of Team Ninja's celebrated game Nioh, Japanese games publisher Koei Tecmo has reported boosted yearly earnings.



According to Koei Tecmo's FY2016 briefings, Nioh, Team Ninja's fresh new IP, sold 1 million copies worldwide in its first two weeks. This was in spite of the title being a PS4 exclusive, but Sony's PlayStation 4 reigns over the market with 60 million consoles sold to date.


Nioh spearheaded the publisher's games segment earnings, and the Japanese games-maker even said Nioh was its "most successful title in the west." I for one absolutely love Nioh and frankly think it's one of the best games ever made--if you own a PS4 do yourself a favor and pick it up.

Team Ninja is poised to release Nioh's first DLC pack, Dragon of the North, tomorrow May 2.
