Square Enix and Disney Interactive were proud to announce today that their collaborative work, Kingdom Hearts, has reached yet another milestone. Since its release in 2002, approximately 1.23 million units shipped in Japan, while another 2 million shipped to North America. European shipments have now topped 820,000 units, rounding the number nicely to 4 million shipments worldwide.
“The unique blend of Disney characters and worlds in a Square Enix style gameplay seen in KINGDOM HEARTS resulted in one remarkable game," said Jun Iwasaka, CEO of Square Enix U.S.A., Inc. "We couldn’t be happier with the results.”
These numbers bode well for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts sequels, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories for the Game Boy Advance and Kingdom Hearts II for the Playstation 2. If all goes well, we may even see these titles outside Japan.
