Square Enix: 5 Million Copies of Final Fantasy XIII Shipped

Square Enix reported overnight that 5 million copies of Final Fantasy XIII have now been shipped worldwide. The title released yesterday in North America and sold 2 million copies in Japan since it’s release in December.

The numbers are impressive, but even more stunning is the series total shipment numbers: 96 million. Over the course of this long-running RPG franchise’s history nearly 100 million copies of the game have been sold & shipped. We’ll learn next week how many copies of the game have sold in North America and Europe and perhaps that 100 million mark will be crossed even before Final Fantasy XIV arrives.

Final Fantasy XIII is available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
