The Final Fantasy franchise is among the biggest IPs of Square Enix, and it has been a massive success for them. With games released for over thirty years, the series is still enjoyed by millions of gamers.
This also means it is one of the best-sellers in the gaming industry. Previously, it was revealed that the series had achieved over 173 million sales. A recent report confirms that Final Fantasy has reached a new milestone, selling over 180 million units worldwide.
Why it matters: The IP has helped establish the JRPG genre. It stands as one of the oldest and most beloved gaming franchises, making it popular among old and new gamers.
Final Fantasy 16 is the latest entry from the JRPG franchise. The game has been loved by critics and fandom, receiving mostly positive reviews, despite a bigger focus on action combat than previous games.
It has sold over 3 million copies in just a few days. Other games like the iconic Final Fantasy 7 have achieved over 14 million sales, helping the franchise reach this new milestone of 180 million sales.
Even weaker entries like Final Fantasy 15 have accumulated over 10 million sales. Therefore, it is clear that the JRPG franchise has shown no signs of slowing down over three decades later.
Final Fantasy 16 is expected to release on PC next year. Following this release, the game will likely see a massive surge in sales. The series stands above other iconic IPs like the Resident Evil franchise, Capcom’s best-selling franchise, reaching 142 million sales recently.
