Soul Calibur IV global sales reach 2.2 million

Namco Bandai announced today that Soul Calibur IV has sold approximately 2.2 million units worldwide since its launch last summer.

Available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the game shipped with exclusive content for each format in the form of Star Wars characters Darth Vader and Jedi Master Yoda. Interestingly, the critically acclaimed brawler reportedly shipped a total of 2 million copies a mere one week after its release on July 31, 2008.

Namco posted a total profit of $99.7 million USD for its third quarter ending December 31, with much of its 2008 success attributed to Soul Calibur IV and Dragon Ball Z Burst Limit.
