New Legend of Heroes Gets over 200,000 Orders
Sony sends congratulatory mail to Falcom CEO.
Earlier this week, Falcom raised its earnings forecast due in part to high demand for the upcoming PSP RPG Legend of Heroes: Ao no Kiseki (details here). Today, we found out just how high the demand is.
A Tweet at the official Falcom Twitter reveals that Falcom has taken over 200,000 retail orders for the game (this means that retailers have ordered 200,000 units, not that people have pre-ordered 200,000 units). Sony apparently sent a congratulatory e-mail about this to Falcom CEO Toshihiro Kondo, who passed along the information to the Falcom staff.
Kondo recently shared a few bits about the new Legend of Heroes game and future Falcom plans in a Dengeki PlayStation interview. See this story for a recap.
