That's excellent news! Maybe this success will pave way to other HD-2D Remakes from the 16bit era.

I would call that "modest" success. Octopath Traveler had celebratory Tweets saying it shipped 1 million copies within a couple of weeks of release. Likewise Triangle Strategy within a month. Octopath Traveler's success is more impressive when you consider it released over 3 years ago, when the install base must have been at least half of what it is today.

Great news! Especially considering the original sold 270k [and was Japan only]

I'll get to it eventually, it's just that time-wise it had a really awkward release [a week apart from Xenoblade...]

I hope it continues to sell more! This is game that deserves sales.
