NPD: Final Fantasy XV sees best launch month in history of the franchise

Final Fantasy XV saw a big boost in the U.S. for the month of December, NPD reported today. The game was the best selling title on PS4 for the month and the second best selling title for December overall.

According to NPD analyst Sam Naji, “Final Fantasy XV saw the best console launch month in the history of the franchise selling 19 percent more new physical units than Final Fantasy XIII in its launch month and 54% more in total dollar revenue including digital full game sales.”

The game also managed to eek out a tenth place in the NPD Group’s U.S. games industry sales of 2016 list.

Recently Square Enix revealed Final Fantasy XV had surpassed six million units shipped and digital sales worldwide. The company plans on offering a wide range of paid and free DLC starting with next week’s Moogle Chocobo Carnival attraction.
