Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster sales have topped three million worldwide.

Per the announcement tweet, which was sent out earlier today, that figure counts across all of the platforms on which the Pixel Remaster games have been released: PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices.

The tweet also doesn't specify whether or not that figure applies to bundles and collections as well as to individual sales, but it's safe to assume that it does.

Rather cutely, Square Enix thanks fans for "sharing this EXP with us" in the tweet, as well as proclaiming that "a victory fanfare awaits!" to commemorate the sales figure.

The Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster collection reworks Final Fantasy I through VI for modern systems.

The Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster collection began launching in July 2021, with Final Fantasy III, and III releasing simultaneously.

Final Fantasy IV followed in September, and fans quickly realized that the game's iconic Developer Room, in which players could talk to several of the original developers of the game, was missing in the remaster.

Final Fantasy V was released in November, and although Final Fantasy VI was intended to be launched at the end of 2021, it was instead delayed until February 2022.

Following the Pixel Remaster collection's release on PC and mobile devices, the remasters then launched for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch earlier this year, allowing console gamers to check them out as well.

If you haven't played them, the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster games are reworked versions of the original pixel-based Final Fantasy games.

The collection features remastered visuals that remain true to the originals, as well as rearranged music (which can be changed back if you don't like it) and a host of other extras and quality-of-life improvements, including a rather controversial font that was thankfully changed for the console releases.

The games are available right now on PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
