Publisher Square-Enix has announced that the Final Fantasy X series - which consists of Final Fantasy X and its direct sequel Final Fantasy X-2 - has now shipped over 20.8 million units as of September 2021.

Back in 2013, prior to the release of the HD Remaster, Square-Enix announced that the two games had sold a combined total of 14 million on the PlayStation 2, meaning the HD Remaster is likely to have made up the additional 6 million.

Looking at the two games on the PlayStation 2 specifically, Final Fantasy X sold around 8.5 million units, whereas its sequel managed a solid 5.4 million. These figures are obviously a rough estimation, given that their combined total equates to 13.9 million, a touch short of the total announced by Square-Enix.

Regardless, it's an incredible achievement for the series, despite it now being over two decades old. The HD Remaster released on Switch in April 2019 and we thought it was a resounding success, stating that "having both of these incredible games in one package, with all the international content thrown in, and with prettied up graphics and audio makes picking up this release a no-brainer".
