Square Enix and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced today that the English version of the CG-animated feature film Final Fantasy VII Advent Children has reached 1.4 million-disc sales. Since the English version's release on April 25, 1.3 million units have been shipped in North America, and over 100.000 units in Europe. The figures include both UMDs for the PlayStation Portable and DVDs. Combined with the Japanese sales, Final Fantasy VII Advent Children has shipped more than 2.4 million units worldwide.
The straight-to-video release is already considered a success, but further popularity is anticipated. "With the French version having recently been released on June 7, I look forward to the upcoming European-language releases, which will make the film available to an even larger audience around the world," guesses Shinji Hashimoto, Corporate Executive and Producer of Square Enix.
