Soul Calibur 5 sells 1.38 million copies, about 1 million less than previous entry in series Soul Calibur 5 sold 1.38 million copies, Namco Bandai revealed in a first quarter financial report to their investors. This was about a million shy of how the previous title, Soul Calibur 4, performed from a sales perspective, with that title moving about 2.3 million copies.

To give these numbers a bit more context, Namco Bandai is expecting to sell 2 million copies of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, while Tecmo Koei is looking for the 1 million range for Dead or Alive 5.

Earlier in the year, Capcom reported that Street Fighter X Tekken had moved 1.4 million units, even though the title was forecast for 2 million in total sales.
