Final Fantasy X, the tenth main installment in the Final Fantasy franchise, just recently turned 21 years old. Released on July 19th, 2001, Final Fantasy X has gone on to become one of the most successful Final Fantasy games ever. Just recently, Square Enix confirmed that the Final Fantasy X series has sold over 20.8 million units as of September 2021, counting both physical and digital shipments. The total number of units probably includes the sales of the various ports of the game, along with its sequel, Final Fantasy X-2. Even though it’s the game’s 21st anniversary, not many details regarding the sales have been posted. We can only hope that Square Enix themselves will make an official announcement about this soon, as well as celebrate the game’s 21st anniversary.
