Final Fantasy Type-0 has been out for a week in Japan and the sales for itís first week have been released by Media Create. Itís managed to shift 472,253 units so far, approximately the same amount as Crisis Core sold on itís first week. This puts it in the top spot for best selling game in Japan, followed by the new Kirby game and The Idolm@ster 2′s PS3 release.
What does this mean for us? Well the game is certainly a critical and commercial success. If anyone still had any doubts about Type-0 coming overseas, these numbers should hopefully put them to rest. Letís hope Square thinks the same.
I really only think it's a matter of time. There was absolutely no official word about a Western release for say, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep until well after the game was released in Japan, and I would say that seemed less likely in general.
I've been having these weird thoughts latelyÖ Like, is any of this for realÖ Or not?
I don't know how reliable VGChartz is (you don't need to tell me the answer )
but according to them, the Crisis Core has sold over 2.8 million units, with 1.3 million coming from the Amuricas, and .8 million from Japan.
Granted that game had VII's legacy stapled all over it, but if Type-0 is following a similar success pattern in Japan, then obvioussllyyy they need to bank off the game here.
Oh Steve Blum, voice King and be a permanent edition to my party? Yeah? OK!
