Metal Gear series lifetime sales have surpassed 49.2 million

Konami has announced in their latest financial result that the Metal Gear series has now surpassed 49.2 million copies in worldwide lifetime sales, as of March 2016.

In the Pachislot & Pachinko Machines business, we intend to release new pachislot machines, SEVEN’S BEAT, in collaboration with beatmania, a music genre game from the Konami Group, and METAL GEAR SOLID SNAKE EATER, which was derived from the ultra large-scale video game title METAL GEAR series (surpassed 49.2 million copies sold worldwide as of end of March 2016). This is the first model loaded on the next-generation cabinet BIGBOSS, featuring the industry’s first full-HD surface 32-inch LCD, and equipped with a 124 GB large-capacity ROM for the LCD.

This means the series has done quite well in the past year: at the end of March of 2015 sales were at 41.2 million, meaning an increase of 8 million since then. This can probably be largely attributed to the succes of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
