VanillaWare's action RPG PS Vita port tops six-digit shipments.

Muramasa Rebirth has topped 100,000 shipments in Japan, publisher Marvelous AQL has announced.

The number is a combination of the game’s retail units shipped and download units sold. At least 67,800 sales are from the retail version, according to last week’s Media Create sales chart.

The VanillaWare-developed action RPG port launched for PS Vita in Japan in late March, and is due out in North America on June 25.

    Wow, extremely surprised. I guess all that advertising payed off. Marvelous is rolling in Vita money.

  • Carlos Luis Ayala

    This is great fot the Vita

  • Kickersu18

    Hope EU gets a release too. i want a special edition here!

    • Santashi

      Fingers crossed! I’d prefer to have the choice of getting the DLC (without memory card/US account faff!) so an EU release would be great.

  • Hikaru Lighthalzen

    marveolus aql is rich now…. senran kagura+muramasa rebirth = 200k++

    • Kickersu18

      maybe 300k because senran sell more than muramasa

  • Elvick

    Is that enough to get even more Vanillaware games on Vita? Eh? :D

    Odin Sphere on Vita <3
    Grand Knights History port and localization would be loved.

  • Justin Konzon

    I’m so looking forward to this game ! if it was not for the DLC I would have imported this but now I have Soul Sacrifice to play so all good : )

  • 武神水樹

    Up next is Valhalla Knights 3

    • Always No. 9

      I hope the game turns out good……the 1st and 2nd were…..acceptable. #9

  • z_merquise

    Really glad to see this. I’m hoping Dragon’s Crown to sell well too when it release.

    • 武神水樹

      Hopefully does, wouldn’t be able to play it without ATLUS stepping in

  • Duc PC-QB

    More VV games pls (VanillaWare Vita )

    • Mar Mar

      I just realized these guys made Odin Sphere too!

      • rockman29

        For shame! :P

  • Kurisu Makise

    So I take it that for sure, Muramasa outsold the Wii counterpart? Also if they’re mixing digital and already sold, are they implying that their sales and not the shipments to stores are at 100k, this is a bit confusing. Is there even a chance that Muramasa could tap out around 100k retail?

  • HarryHodd

    It was dumb to release this exclusively on the wii. Glad it’s doing well on Vita.

  • PrinceHeir

    already have my limited edition already preordered from amazon :D

    can’t wait for this!!!!!!

    Vanillaware goodness FTW!!!!!!!
