Final Fantasy X is either one of the best entries in the legendary series, the end of a golden age, or both, depending on who you ask and what day it is. Its direct sequel, Final Fantasy X-2, proved divisive when it launched, but has its diehard fans and is an impressive game in its own right.
Regardless, the memorable tale of sacrifice and loss told across both games has proven popular and enduring. Square Enix confirmed to Gematsu that the combined sales of both titles had surpassed 20.8 million units as of September 2021.
Back in 2013, Square Enix announced that 14 million units had been sold across the initial PS2 releases of both titles. We can assume then that the Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster collection (which launched later in 2013) has likely made up the additional 6.8 million units. If you want our full thoughts on the matter, we reviewed the collection on both PS4 and Vita.
