FFX/X-2 HD Remasters Hit The Top Of Japan's Sales Charts
Remember when we wondered what might happen if the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster actually outsold Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII?
Well, we concluded that Square Enix would remain oblivious, while the rest of the world saw it as vindication. And it appears that the anticipated HD remasters are off to a very good start in Japan.
According to the Japanese sales numbers for the week of December 23-29 (as noted by Dual Shockers), the FFX and X-2 HD upgrades are at the top of the charts, even beating out the acclaimed 3DS title, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. It's even cooler to note that both Vita iterations (FFX HD and FFX-2 HD) are in the top 10; interestingly, X-2 is at #4 while X is at #10. The two HD remasters are due out in North America on March 18, 2014.
Really, if prettied-up versions of decade-old games top your latest installment in any given franchise, you might want to seriously reconsider that franchise's direction. But hey, what do I know?
