Square Enix released Final Fantasy III on the PSP in Japan last week. The game, which is a port of the Nintendo DS (and later iOS) remake, sold 44,872 copies in its first week, which is a pretty low number.

 

Media Create report that this was 56.39% of Final Fantasy III’s shipment to retail stores. For comparison, last year’s Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection sold 104,173 copies in its first week, with a sell-through of 82.05%.
