Final Fantasy XV broke even on launch day, actually

Elsewhere, Square Enix reports that net sales and operating income from PC browser games and smart devices increased significantly compared to the same period a year ago. Mobile and browser games also did just as well, but MMO did not, as net sales and operating income were down. At that time, it managed to ship out five million copies on its first day, and by January, it reached six million in no time flat.

I found six games: KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, RIDE 2, I Am Setsuna (Nintendo Switch), NieR: Automata (PS4), Kingdom Hearts 1.5 & 2.5 HD ReMIX (PS4), and the newly released Mobius Final Fantasy.

In a report by Gamespot, the release of the premium Booster Pack and DLC will still be on February 21, along with other updates on content and new features. Three of these (NieR and Kingdom Hearts) are heavy-hitters.

Called Magitek Exosuits, these new free costumes were originally supposed to be released on February 21.

Dissidia Final Fantasy is now available at Japanese arcades.

Or is Square Enix confident in this new lineup combined with the stellar sales of its previous FY 2017 lineup?

When Square Enix announced the DLC release schedule for Final Fantasy 15, fans of Ignis were probably disappointed- while Prompto and Gladiolus will both be getting their DLC episodes within the next six months, Ignis' DLC episode is nowhere in sight. Dissidia Final Fantasy is now only available in Japanese arcades.

But I can't help but to wonder if the games-maker hasn't snuck a hidden game in the mix as well. The 3 vs. 3 setup makes it look similar to Vainglory, but while the game is in beta for Japan, there's still no Western release date. Especially the handsome vegetation make Final Fantasy XV highly lifelike.
