Kingdom Hearts III is probably one of the most hyped games ever to be released, after all it is a sequel that’s nearly 13 years in the making. Thankfully, the game delivered and was praised by critics and fans as a great end to a beloved trilogy.
Thanks to its positive reception (and its hype), Kingdom Hearts III has now shipped over 5 million copies worldwide. This announcement was made just recently by the official Kingdom Hearts Twitter.

KH3’s shipped copies record made the game the fastest-selling Kingdom Hearts title to date. This is not really a surprise given the title’s massive hype. The new sales record also meant that the story leak back in December did little to deter fans from buying the game ASAP.
