From December 2009 onwards, 1.85 million copies of Lightning’s fate fighting tale were sold in Japan. Final Fantasy XIII made its debut in the West in March where it moved 1.79 million and 1.77 million units in North America and Europe, respectively. Add in sales from other regions and you have a total of 5.55 million copies of Final Fantasy XIII. Later this month, Square Enix will re-launch Final Fantasy XIII in Asia with a Chinese/Korean version.

 

Dragon Quest IX sold extremely well with 4.28 million units in Japan. North America hearts Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and bought 750,000 copies, a tiny bit more than Japan and Europe together. Just Cause 2 did best in Europe with 590,000 units in sales from March 26 to the end of the month. The Avalanche Studios developed game surpassed the one million milestone in April. Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, a January release in Japan, already racked up 760,000 units in sales.

 

Despite all of the hype, Dissidia: Final Fantasy sold a modest 440,000 in North America and 380,000 in Europe. Even when combined, the sales figures are still less than Japan. On the other hand, Batman: Arkham Asylum was a hit in the West, but not in Japan. Square Enix only managed to squeak out 30,000 units after Batman: Arkham Asylum made its debut there this past January.

 

Overall, Square Enix had a strong year and their game’s division led the company to record profits.
