Indeed, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD debuts #1 in Japan by selling 92 094 copies during the launch week. The Xbox One version didn’t chart in top 20, but that’s not surprising since the console itself only sold a bit over 300 units where as PlayStation 4 rocked with 46 000 units last week. When it comes to Final Fantasy Type-0 HD sales, they were quite tame compared to Square Enix’s last major release – Dragon Quest Heroes – which sold over 594 000 copies at its launch last month.
Why did Final Fantasy Type-0 HD perform the way it did then? As you may already know, Final Fantasy Type-0 first launched on October 27, 2011 in Japan as a PlayStation Portable exclusive title. After the launch, it has sold nearly a million copies to date. This is main reason for relatively low sales in Japan because a big percentage of the fans already owns the game. However, it will be interesting to see how this correlates in the West, where the game is released for the first time. PlayStation 4 has sold nearly 1.4 million units in Japan, which means that every fourteenth console owner bought the game – doesn’t sounds so bad anymore.
Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The first print edition of the game also contains a download voucher for Final Fantasy XV demo, titled as Episode Duscae.
