Final Fantasy Type-0 HD tops 92K in its first week on sale in Japan By Erren Van Duine on March 28, 2015 at 2:31 AM

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD made it to the top of the software charts in Japan last week, despite having released on the PSP there years prior. The PlayStation 4 version of the game managed to sell 92,094 units according to numbers compiled by Media Create, which is fairly impressive given its high asking price and HD remaster status.

The Xbox One version of the game, however, did not manage to make the top 50 despite being included as a free bonus for buyers of new hardware. According to Media Create, the combined sales for both versions was around 93K, which puts a rough estimate around 1,000 units for Microsoft’s console.

Last week also saw the release of the special Suzaku Edition PS4 hardware, which likely helped boost sales past the 46K mark for the reporting period – though it remains unknown just how many of said bundles contributed to this figure.

It will be interesting to see if the Final Fantasy XV demo can push things along a little further, as the standard edition of the game has already dropped down 37% on Amazon Japan. Suffice to say, Japanese fans will likely have an easy time picking up a first print copy on the cheap quite quickly.

    Cant wait to read how Europe and North America sales went

  • It’s not surprising that Type-0 didn’t sell well on the XBox One, considering that the console itself isn’t selling well in Japan either.

    Japan already has the PSP version and beaten it already. 92k is a reasonable and quite surprising numbers for them ( compared to the 400k+ sold for the PSP).

    What I am worried more about is sales in NA/EU. That’s where it’s going to count more.

    It is 150 K US min , for the EU i don’t know .

    The only and only one reason to buy FF Type 0 in Japan is for demo or for the ps4 Bundle , nothing else really .

    94K is good , i hope the west sells way more , when do we get the sales ?

  • stevenm281

    The original PSP version sold 472 000 copies in its first week, 93 000 is quite low.

    Can we compare with sales of other FF remasters? Where could I get these numbers?

  • First week sales for Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and 2.5

    KH 1.5: 128,414 (JP)
