Final Fantasy is one of the biggest franchises of all times and probably the only game that turned Square Enix into such superstars. However, we never knew exactly how well games in the franchise sold (even though everybody could’ve guessed that the numbers were high). And indeed they were: according to Squenix, the Final Fantasy franchise sold over 85 million copies since the first game was launched!
Kotaku also reports that Dragon Quest also sold very well, with more than 47 million units shipped, while the third best selling game of Square Enix is Kingdom Hearts with 12 million units sold. However, nowadays with such an intense competition and so many quality products released, it must be hard for Square Enix to hope for similar numbers. We’ll see when Final Fantasy XIII hits store shelves this December!
