What? 13 sold over 1million first week, and 15 and 7R around 700k in a time where digital is a lot higher, so much that 15 broke the record for highest selling day one digital sales at the time. Those are still extremely high numbers for Japan with most games selling a fraction of that.

For perspective, Xenoblade 1 Wii debuted at around 83k, Xenoblade 2 at around 98k, and Xenoblade 1 Switch around 90k. Their lifetime sales even never come close to FF day one sales.
