Vanillaware has revealed that 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim sales have topped another major milestone worldwide.

According to an official announcement by Japanese publisher Atlus (which is in Japanese; we're using machine translation), the game has reached a million sales around the world.

Back in November last year, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim was sitting at around 800,000 sales globally, so that means the sci-fi mech mystery has picked up another 200,000 since then.

To commemorate the million-sale milestone, 13 Sentinels artist Yukiko Hirai has also drawn a special illustration, which you can check out here.

Yukiko Hirai's commemorative drawing for a million 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim sales is pretty awesome.

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim was originally released for the PS4 in Japan all the way back in 2019, but Atlus announced its intention to localize the game for the West two years before that.

The game is a rather curious mixture of side-scrolling adventure and mech RTS, and it follows a group of high school students locked in a battle between mechs and kaiju.

During adventure segments, you'll talk to other characters and learn how the story of 13 Sentinels unfolds. The narrative is nonlinear, and as you play, you'll learn new keywords and concepts, which will be entered into your Thought Cloud.

You can then use terms from that Thought Cloud to find out more across other scenes and storylines, expanding the narrative of the game.

Combat-wise, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is a real-time strategy game in which you'll select up to six of your characters to battle kaiju.

Sentinels have different strengths and weaknesses, and kaiju have different abilities, so fielding the right Sentinels against the right kaiju is key to victory.

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is available right now for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. You can also play the game on PS5 thanks to backwards compatibility.

In his 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim review, TechRaptor's Andrew Stretch gave the game an impressive 9 out of 10, pointing to its "amazing" non-linear story and strong combat.
