Final Fantasy XIII selling faster than any other Final Fantasy game in UK history

Hot of the heels of hitting the 5 million shipped milestone, Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XIII has become both the fastest selling UK game of 2010 and the fastest selling Final Fantasy game ever released in country. The RPG has also become 2010’s fastest selling game in both Germany and France, and according to Squeenix, these sales have helped pushed total worldwide numbers of the entire franchise past 96 million units.

However, it looks like the Japanese publisher isn’t contempt with their current European sales. “With high profile TV spots playing out beyond Easter and branded buses still travelling the country I’m positive this title is only going to get bigger and bigger,” said Jon Brooke, UK Marketing Director for Square Enix.
