13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim sales have reached 800,000 copies sold worldwide. This isn't anything to write home about if you're a mega-hit like Elden Ring or any AAA game, but for a quirky 2D sidescroller from Vanillaware, those are solid numbers. Essentially, while its sales will never set the world on fire, if you're within this specific niche, you'll probably really enjoy it.

What is 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim? Basically, it's a sci-fi 2D sidescroller and real time strategy title set in 1980's Japan. It's a time traveling title, so you'll be going to as early as 1945 while also going into the future to pilot mechs in order to fight kaiju. It's definitely out there, but like I said, if you are into this type of thing, you'll really enjoy it.

I want the pills she's on.

Interestingly, the game's sales don't seem to be slowing down that much either. It hit 500,000 copies sold a year ago today, so it's sold 300,000 copies over the past year. 13 Sentinels was released back in 2020, so it looks as though the game has found its market and has continued to spread through word of mouth. That's really the best form of advertising, at least for niche games like these.

If you're looking for some more 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim news to augment the sales chat, there's a 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim orchestral concert coming January 7th. You'll have to fly out to Katsushika in Tokyo, Japan, but if you really want to listen to music from Odin Sphere LeifthrasirDragon’s Crown Pro, and 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, you'll be able to check it out on this website. The tickets are apparently being sold by lottery, so if you want in, you'll have to get lucky. Good luck.
