My Friend Pedro Has Been a Big Hit in Its First Week of Release
My Friend Pedro came out on June 20th and has managed to sell 250,000 units in its first week, publisher Devolver Digital announced last Friday.
My Friend Pedro is about a man and his best friend, a banana, going on a gun-toting killing spree. Along with that goofy story premise, there’s also dual-wielding gunplay and a stylish slow-mo mechanic.
