Despite having a rather troublesome development cycle that spanned almost ten years, Final Fantasy 15 has proven to be a landmark success for Square Enix, and has successfully revitalized the franchise with its impressive visuals and action-packed gameplay. In fact, Square Enix today announced that FF15's shipment and digital sales have topped 6 million.
Now that the latest Final Fantasy hit an impressive sales milestone by becoming the fastest-selling game in the franchise, the title has pushed through yet another achievement by tacking on another million shipments and sales across the globe.
Although the game is absolutely massive in scope and content, Square Enix opened up a new level of replayability by adding NewGame+ to let gamers run through the storyline again. A new update also brought a batch of free content, and Square Enix will roll out even more updates to expand and tighten the gameplay experiences.
Final Fantasy 15 is now available for PS4 and Xbox One. Check below for a full copy of the press release and a few awesome screenshots I recently took!
