Bandai Namco posts impressive sales figures for open-word (ish) action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

It’s fair to say that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot received a mixed reception on its release in January. The game’s blend of combat and role-playing drawing equal parts acclaim and criticism.

However, such is the enduring strength of the Dragon Ball brand, the game appears to be critic-proof. In its first week on sale, it topped the UK video game charts, sold just under 90,000 copies in Japan, and achieved 1.5 million in unit sales.

In a tweet posted yesterday, publisher Bandai Namco has confirmed that the game has now sold over two million copies worldwide. Impressive stuff.

If you’re new to the world of Dragon Ball Z and wondering what all the fuss is about, you’re in good company. Thumbsticks contributor Callum Williams has put together an idiot’s guide to the franchise, based entirely on what he learned through Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.
