Square Enix just announced via press release that its latest JRPG Final Fantasy XV has exceeded six million shipped copies since its launch on November 29th.
The press release explains that the number includes shipped copies to brick and mortar stores worldwide and digital downloads on the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live.
On top of that, we also learn that the promised in-game event “Moogle Chocobo Carnival” will be available for a limited time started on January 24th. If you downloaded the first DLC you should already have the “carnival passport” ticket that will grant you access to the festivities.
“Having received critical acclaim across the world for its beautiful world design and graphical quality, along with the open-world freedom and exciting new battle system, the game continues its strong sales after recording five million units on day one.
FINAL FANTASY XV provides additional content and associated products to expand and enhance players’ experiences, starting with the free game update, Holiday Pack (Free Version) and premium Holiday Pack+ DLC which are now available for download. Those who download the Holiday Pack (Free Version) or Holiday Pack+ will also gain access to the “Moogle Chocobo Carnival,” a special in-game event that brings an exciting festival to the whole city of Altissia, starting on Tuesday, January 24thfor a limited time.
To allow players a deeper enjoyment of FINAL FANTASY XV, regular updates enhancing the main game will be coming soon, such as premium DLC content that will provide players additional gameplay experiences.”
This means that the game shipped an additional million copies since its release, considering that Square Enix announced that shipments exceeded five million copies on its release day.
If you’re curious about the mention of regular updates, Game Director Hajime Tabata gave a few details on what we can expect back in December, mentioning further expansions to the story and new features on top of the upcoming DLC packages.
