Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity hits 3.7 million copies and Atelier Ryza 2 has 360,000 as of March 2021
Koei Tecmo has published the full financial report [PDF] for the last fiscal year that ended in March 2021. The document showed how the company made another record-high profit from the successes of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity worldwide, as well as mobile games in Asia. It also had a new sales figure for Atelier Ryza 2.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity has reached 3.7 million units shipped as of March 2021. The game shipped over 3 million units within its launch week, with around half a million more in around a month bringing it to 3.5 million units by the end of 2020. However, it only managed to add 200 thousand more units for the next three months.
Although Nintendo revealed an Expansion Pass for Age of Calamity in the February 2021 Nintendo Direct, most of the content will only come later through two separate waves scheduled for this June and November.
Meanwhile, Atelier Ryza 2 shipped over 360 thousand units worldwide by the end of FY2020. In the previous report, it only listed 220 thousand units shipped in Japan and Asia within 2020, as the game was released earlier in the region last December. That means Ryza 2 has shipped 140 thousand more units including in the West for the next three months.
The new number also gives more insight to the announcement of the Atelier Ryza series reaching a combined total of 1 million sales last month. The second game having 360 thousand units means that the first Atelier Ryza should have around 640 thousand shipments. The last number recorded for the first Ryza title was 500 thousand units as of August 2020.
Near the end of the document, Koei Tecmo also revealed that the Atelier Ryza games were developed with the company's self-made internal engine called Katana Engine. Not many details on the engine were given, other than that it was regularly updated to support multiple platforms, including the new-generation consoles like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
