Kingdoms of Amalur sales prove it's a successful new IP

New IPs in gaming are risky these days, a risk that most publishers aren't willing to take. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning seems to be doing quite well however, with 410,000 copies sold in the US since launching a few months ago.

The new RPG that launched less than six months after The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim still managed to shift 80,000 units in March alone, which is certainly signs of a successful launch.

NPD spokesman David Riley simply stated it's "an impressive figure for just two months, no matter how you slice it."

Keeping in mind that these figures only account for physical copies, and doesn't take into account digital distribution sales of the game, we'd say that EA have stumbled onto a successful new IP.

Now lets watch them milk it dry.
