Square-Enix Turns Profit, FFXIII Hits 5.5 Million Worldwide

Square-Enix's latest numbers show an overall profit of $102.7 million (9.51 billion yen) and games like Final Fantasy XIII and Dragon Quest IX proved to be huge sellers.

As reported by GameSpot, FFXIII has now managed to sell 5.5 million units worldwide and DQIX for the Nintendo DS hasn't been far behind at 4.26 million. Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham Asylum has done very well in North America (1.82 million) and Europe (1.39 million) but unsurprisingly, it has been almost non-existent in Japan, selling only about 30,000 copies. Square-Enix can also thank the likes of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, which came in at around 1.49 million, and the DS remake of Dragon Quest VI, which garnered 1.29 million units in Japan alone. On the PSP front, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep has sold 760,000 copies in Japan; the long-awaited and critically acclaimed portable RPG will land on North American shores on September 7. Last but not least is the recently released Just Cause 2, which has sold 1.19 million copies as of the end of April.  We had some problems with the game's definite lack of sharp and reliable control, but the over-the-top nature of the action has compelled many.  And we can understand that.

Well, is it any surprise to see such numbers? Final Fantasy will likely always be a, about that Final Fantasy Versus XIII...
