Namco Bandai's Naruto games ship 10M copies
Newsbrief: Namco Bandai has shipped more than 10 million copies of its Naruto games around the world since the publisher began licensing the popular anime/manga series in 2003.
The company's 15 Naruto releases across various platforms have shipped some 1.9 million units in Japan and other Asian countries, 4.3 million units in North America, and 3.8 million units in Europe.
Namco Bandai and its D3 Publisher subsidiary have worked with a variety of developers on those titles, including CyberConnect2. Other publishers have also released Naruto games, such as Atlus and Tomy.
To celebrate the milestone, CyberConnect 2 president Hiroshi Matsuyama (pictured) will run over 26 miles during France's Marathon de Paris in full Naruto costume on April 15.
