It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost a decade since Final Fantasy Tactics A2 was released for the Nintendo DS. Since its release back in 2007 Final Fantasy A2 has managed to sell at least three quarters of a million units worldwide. As popular as the Nintendo DS was during the 00’s the Nintendo Wii seemed even more so. There were so many big RPG titles such as Xenoblade Chronicles, Tales of Symphonia, Final Fantasy Crystal and others that could have easily overshadowed this game on the Nintendo Wii.
However, when the original Final Fantasy Tactics game was first released in 1997 for the PS1 it managed to sell over 2 million units worldwide. But since the Final Fantasy was still very big on the PS1 in the mid 90’s following the release of FFVII it probably made sense that the original FF Tactics game would do great in sales during that time period. Many can agree that the Final Fantasy series has been more popular on PlayStation home based consoles then Nintendo during the 00’s. If Final Fantasy Tactics A2 was released for the Nintendo Wii it would be hard to tell how well the game would have done overall in terms of sales.
