Square Enix boss Yoichi Wada has announced that initial shipments of Final Fantasy XIII reached the 1.8 million mark, confirming rumours posted yesterday on Japanese gaming message boards.
The 1.8 million shipment figure for FF13 includes regular copies of the game and the Limited Edition "Lightning Pink" PS3 console bundles which include a special FF13 branded PS3 as well as a copy of the game in a limited-run box.
The FF13 launch is expected to boost PS3 sales dramatically in Japan.
Square Enix later added that with these confirmed 1.8 million units in Japan, the worldwide shipment figure for the Final Fantasy series is at an impressive 92 million units worldwide. That figure will balloon even further when FF13 hits the West in March.
