Final Fantasy Type-0 HD fails to hit sales targets in Japan

Even though Final Fantasy Type-0 has already been released in Japan for the PSP, Square Enix had optimistic sales target for the PS4 and Xbox One remaster – Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. The game sold around 92k units on the PS4 and just 1k units on the Xbox One in Japan, the 93k total is far below what Square Enix forecasted.

Japanese Sales Tracker Mediacreate reports (via Siliconera) that the game sold through just 59.59% of their shipment to stores. Publishers tend to ship roughly the amount of copies to stores that they expect the game to sell, so seeing such a low sell through rate means the game failed to hit Square Enix’s forecasts. The Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae demo packaged alongside the Day 1 copies didn’t seem to help the sales much either.

The game is expected to sell better in North America and Europe where Final Fantasy Type-o wasn’t released. PSP version for comparison sold 79.08% of its stock.
