It’s no secret that Sega’s financial position isn’t in the best shape at the moment. The publisher has said that it intends to improve profits by focusing more on its key franchises and by shifting its attention from traditional retail to digital distribution platforms such as Steam, Xbox LIVE and the PlayStation Network.
The company recently revealed sales data for some of its major titles that were released during the fiscal year ending March 31st. Surprisingly Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games shifted over a million more units than Sonic Generations despite only appearing on half the number of platforms as the latter title. Yakuza: Dead Souls was the worst performing game on the list, despite the once enormous popularity of the Yakuza series in Japan.
Take a look at the full list of sales figures below:
Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games (Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii) – 3 280 000 units in Europe and United States
