Square Enix could learn a few things from Namco Bandai. Hopefully the lessons of 2011 sink in.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 made its retail debut last month, topping the charts by selling a hefty 524,000 copies. In the time since, it has managed to climb to 700,000 units shifted. For almost any other series, that would be amazing and far beyond expectations. For Final Fantasy, and for that matter, a “main line” title on the hottest console for Japanese RPGs, that’s a critical miss.
