Let it Die, the hack-and-slash roguelike directed by esteemed developer Goichi Suda, has today surpassed six million downloads across PS4 and PC. The news comes by way of a press release from publisher GungHo Online Entertainment and developer Grasshopper.
Kazuki Morishita, President & CEO of GOE said of the milestone:
“We owe it entirely to our dedicated fanbase, our ‘senpais’, for getting behind Let It Die and making this milestone possible.
The journey with them has been a pleasure as we have watched the game grow – just imagine the sheer amount of Death Data out there!”
Let it Die’s continued popularity is actually at odds with its middling critical reception. At launch, it was criticized for its rough-around-the-edges UI and wonky PvP mechanics, but solid post-launch support has since ironed out many of those kinks.
In fact, to celebrate today’s download milestone news, a new in-game event is said to be on the way later today. We’ll keep you posted with details as and when they’re made available.
Let it Die was first released on PS4 back in 2016 before coming to PC two years later in 2018. Today’s sales update follows on from news of it breaking the one million mark in 2017, and then the four million milestone a year after that.
Developer Suda51’s latest project was teased toward the end of 2019 when he and Swery hosted a live discussion panel discussing the potential of a horror game called Hotel Barcelona.
