Fans of Square Enix's Disney RPG series have been waiting a long time for Kingdom Hearts III, so when the game launched at the end of January, they didn't hang around. As announced by the publisher itself via the game's Twitter page, the long-awaited sequel has quickly become the fastest selling game in the series. Five million copies of the game have been shipped worldwide, a figure that also includes digital sales.
That's a pretty incredible start for a game that's only been on the market for a week or so. It helps that the game has received plenty of critical praise, including from us. If you haven't yet, be sure to read our recently published review.

I freaking love this game , I haven't been able to play much (full-time job) . Im at work thinking about when i can finally get home and can play 😊
Bought it day 2
Excellent! I give Square Enix a lot of tough love, but they absolutely deserve this win.
I plan on playing my copy once I'm finished with Resi 2.
I really want to know what the split looks like.
I’m not surprised. The lines I’ve heard of were pretty big. I knew it was gonna sell some pretty big numbers.
Shipped is not sold. Why do journalists insist on uncritically repeating PR.
Oops! SE didn't say they sold 5 million copies, that's all on push square.
@Callmegil Split is 82% on PS4 and 18% on X1. Not surprising given the series heritage on PlayStation.
@NintendoFan4Lyf i think i have done everything i need to get the secret ending so i'm just going through the story now
@Yogsoggoth thing is your are both right and wrong at the same time when a game is shipped it means Square has actually already sold it, in this case to a store who will then sell it on to the consumer so those 5 million may not be in homes but they have been sold
@TheMorrigan578 which is actually really strange when you think that Nintendo had more of the games than PlayStation did before the HD releases came out
Hopefully it sells even more so the next entry in the franchise won't take more than 10 years to release
Shipped doesn't means sold
Same crap Square tried with FFXV
