FFX to ship December 26, 2001
It was announced today that SquareSoft will be shipping Final Fantasy X earlier than their originally planned January 2002 release date. The newest RPG in SquareSoft’s Final Fantasy series, FFX will be released on December 26, 2001. The game was already released in Japan on July 19 and sold 90% of its initial 2.14 million units in four days. FFX is the first PS2 title to hit the 2 million units sold.
“We are very excited to rollout Final Fantasy X before the end of the year. All efforts were put into bringing the title out earlier than expected. We hope this long-awaited title will be played by many gamers over the holiday season," said Jun Iwasaki, president of Square Electronic Arts. "As with Final Fantasy VII for the original PlayStation, as the first Final Fantasy game released for the PlayStation 2, we hope that this title will set new standards in the role-playing game genre."
