The holidays are behind us and initial sales numbers for the high definition releases of Final Fantasy X and X-2 have rolled in after a week of reporting. According to Famitsu’s tracking, the game sold a total of 339,902 units across both the PS3 and PS Vita platforms. The initial breakdown shows 182,638 units sold on PS3 with a combined 159,102 units of the PS Vita Twin Pack and Final Fantasy X versions purchased from December 23rd through the 29th in Japan. Currently, we have no idea on how the Vita version of X-2 sold although further information from Media Create should be available some time this week.
These numbers put FFX|X-2 HD above Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, which released a month prior in Japan on November 21st and marked the first of Square Enix’s dual-holiday Final Fantasy releases. For a more direct comparison, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX – Square Enix’s other HD remaster to date – sold 132K at launch.
