During its launch month of October 2011, Dark Souls was the sixth-best-selling title in the United States, according to NPD data.

The Dark Souls franchise is set to grow, as From Software is currently working on a sequel for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, though its release date has not been divulged. For more on this title, check out GameSpot's first-look preview of Dark Souls II.
