The data released by Bandai Namco are updated to last March 31, 2022, a date that marks the conclusion of the fiscal year that started on April 1, 2021. With the Action RPG landed on PC and consoles on February 25, 2022, we are therefore talking about a market presence period of just over a month .
Another way to put that number in perspective is to look at FromSoftware’s previous statement.
