Did well enough for a sequel project, maybe? I did see some talks about that recently.

This is an insane number for a Yoko Taro joint. This is about the number FF XIII-2 sold and twice the sales of FFXIII-3. Lol.
It took Taro a decade and a half and an outside developer to finally ship a good game boy did he deliver. I wouldn´t be surprised if these sales also helped Platinum to get a new lease on life. I am a bit shocked that the game is rated cero D (17+) in Japan though. I can name at least a hundred T rated games with more extreme content. Even SE´s FF XV, cero C, is less kid appropriate. Huh.

I was going to explain why it got a Cero C by saying that the game's story and themes have mature contents. But, let's admit it. It's the ladder climbing isn't it? Wink

Very good considering it's lower budgeted and also as a result of that didn't get any heavy marketing.

I look forward to a spiritual successor. But I'll admit the grind got too ridiculous so I just turned the auto chips on and enjoyed the story.

I hope they keep that going as an easy mode.
