Perhaps you’ve heard of a little title called Final Fantasy XIII that’s due out in Japan on December 17th? If not, you’ve either been living under a rock or you’re still trying to convince yourself that this supposed PlayStation exclusive is no longer that. Either way, that hasn’t prevented Yoichi Wada, CEO and President of Square Enix, to boast large sales expectations for his company’s upcoming release.
Speaking to Reuters, Wada reveals that the company expects to sell over six million copies of Final Fantasy XIII, which is more than the amount of copies the company has sold for its previous title this year, Dragon Quest IX. The sales expectations aren’t exactly too extreme as the previously released Final Fantasy title has sold well over that target already. However, in this economy, it’s a very bold expectation to say the least.
Considering the companies decision to go multiplatform everywhere but Japan, it makes this sales figure a little bit more realistic and we do expect Square to hit that lofty goal.
