Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning hits 330,000 in US sales

With all the usual suspects—Call of Duty, Final Fantasy, Just Dance—dominating the majority of last month’s US game sales, it was rather refreshing to see Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, an entirely new IP, come in as the fourth highest-selling title on the overall list. Now, actual figures for 38 Studios and Big Huge Games’ epic have arrived, and the numbers are fairly impressive: the game sold 330,000 copies across the 360, PS3, and PC in the US alone last month.

So, yes, successful RPGs are successful. While by no means a blockbuster (see: Mass Effect 3), it is a promising start for a debut title. Worldwide sales figures have not been released yet, but for now it would appear that this project has been a success, despite having one of the clunkiest game titles this generation.
