Hot on the heels of yesterday's official acquisition
of "the house that Lara built" (Eidos, folks), Square Enix
has released a load of numbers on its biggest IPs -- including some that it just acquired yesterday. Unsurprisingly, the Final Fantasy
series flies high above its brethren (in a fancy airship, of course
) with over 85 million units moved over the series' lifetime. We imagine after the company releases its flurry of FFXIII titles
, that number will jump considerably.
Among other details in the release is Dragon Quest
's lifetime sales, reaching nearly 50 million units, and the Tomb Raider
series showing up with 30 million units sold in the past 13 years. Also of note is Kane & Lynch: Dead Men
selling nearly two million shameful, shameful copies. Can we expect the layoffs
to stop for now?
