Final Fantasy passes 100 million

Here’s some news that will bring a nostalgic tear to your eye: the Final Fantasy series has sold 100 million units. Crazy, right? It seems like just yesterday that the first FF was released and our young gamer hands were sore and blistered from marathon sessions with the RPG.

Since its debut in 1987, the landmark game has seen 12 sequels, the most recent of which was last year’s Final Fantasy XIII. The series has launched a number of spinoffs as well, including Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantaxy X-2, and the currently in-development Final Fantasy XIII-2.
