After surpassing 3.5 millions copies sold in just three days since its launch, Square Enix has announced that the Final Fantasy VII Remake has now sold over five million copies worldwide. This new record for the game combines physical and digital sales.
According to Square Enix, digital sales have accounted for a large part of the game’s 5 million sales. In fact, the Final Fantasy VII Remake is now the highest-selling
