According to the publication Gematsu, the Final Fantasy X series has been confirmed by Square Enix to have sold over 20.8 million units worldwide, counting both physical and digital shipments. This amount assuredly includes sales of the many ports alongside the sequel, Final Fantasy X-2. Unfortunately, no other details regarding these sales were provided, so hopefully, Square Enix will make an official public announcement soon. This news also arrived on the day of Final Fantasy X’s 21-year anniversary.
Final Fantasy X was the first PlayStation 2 entry for the franchise, not counting the MMO Final Fantasy XI. It featured full voice acting, countless side activities, a content-filled postgame, and much more. An updated release, dubbed the International version, would remain Japanese-exclusive until localized ports later arrived.
In the first title, the protagonist Tidus is whisked away from the night-life world of Zanarkand to a more rustic setting known as Spira. He ends up having to discover the truth of the connection between Zanarkand and Spira, as well as his own place in it all. Final Fantasy X-2 is a bold sequel taking place after the first game’s events, offering what is arguably one of the best JRPG combat systems ever made.
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is currently available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
