Crisis Core: FFVII nears two million units sold

Square Enix has published its financial results for the period April 1 to September 30 2008, revealing that PlayStation Portable title Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII – arguably the greatest of the Final Fantasy VII spin-offs – is nearing two million sales worldwide in total.

Zack Fair’s action-RPG jaunt in franchise backstory heaven is the publisher’s second most popular product for the period, with only Dragon Quest V on DS pipping it in sales.

Square Enix total game sales in Japan have, however, dropped dramatically from the same period last year, but the publisher is enjoying slight increases in Europe and Asia. Worldwide, unit sales are down from 6,920,000 to 4,980,000 – better get Final Fantasy XIII out the door sharpish, chaps.
