Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, the first HD remaster developed by Square Enix for the Final Fantasy series, has managed to 208,000 units in the US, according to analyst David Gibson.
As expected, the game sold better on PlayStation 3, with around 166.400 copies sold since release. The PlayStation Vita version has managed to sell around 41.600 copies, still a good result considering that the console is not as popular as the PlayStation 3.
Even though the Remaster has been outsold by another recent Square Enix role-playing game, Bravely Default, the Japanese company should definitely be happy for these results.
The good sales of the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster may also pave the way for more HD remasters for the series. Final Fantasy XII game director Yoshinori Kitase revealed a few months ago that Square Enix might consider releasing an HD version of the game if there’ enough demand for it. The good sales of the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster certainly show that gamers in the West want to play older entries of the series in a new remastered form.
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is now available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in all regions.
