Forums - Gaming Discussion - What will sell more Final Fantasy 15 or Kingdom Hearts 3?

Surprised that so many are confidently saying FFXV. Kingdom Hearts has a huge fanbase, far more than the fanbase for any individual Final Fantasy game.

The games have also all performed well while Final Fantasy games vary greatly in sales.

Not to mention that more and more people are going off Final Fantasy all the time.

Also the 2 trailers can out the same time but KH3 got far more views.

It's also got vastly more google interest.

FFXV, im saying 8m for FF and 5m for KH



The Wii U versions will sell exactly the same.

that is highly dependant on quality. if square screws up with FF 15, KH3 should easily outsell it.


FF 13 begs to differ.



Well, this is new.

Im gonna go against the popular vote here and say Kingdom Hearts 3.

Final Fantasy as a brand has been hurt by the XIII saga, so Im tempted to think that XV will be automatically pushing lower numbers than the norm. If its good it will have great word of mouth, but I wouldnt be surprised to see it be a hit with the 2nd hand market.

Kingdom Hearts 3 will be hyped up to the back bollocks by both Square Enix and Disney. Thats the key thing here though. Disney's new found, overwhelming popularity with the mass market thanks to the acquisition of Marvel and Star Wars.

Star Wars and Marvel characters, along with the classic cast of characters we have had throughout the series will only help to push the title more with the mass market.

Kingdom Hearts 3 will be a 10 Million seller. Im calling it.

FFXV will dominate KH3. Only FFXIII can hurt FFXV sales.

I don't think that KH has a bigger fanbase than any individual Final Fantasy game. FF7 for instance has a huge fanbase, it sold almost twice the copies of KH1, which is the best selling Kingdom Hearts game.

Final Fantasy sales do vary, but so far most of them have outsold KH1. Even 13, which many consider to be the worst Final Fantasy, outsold KH1. 

Final Fantasy has lost fans in recent years, but that's due to diminishing quality over the course of the last few games. If anybody can make a quality Final Fantasy release again, it's Tetsuya Nomura, if it gets good reviews most of those lost fans will come back.

Not really a fair comparison, KH 3 was a new announcement, whereas XV was announced back in 2006 as Versus 13, many people skipped watching XV's trailer simply because they assumed it was more of the same footage they'd already seen in previous Versus 13 trailers.



Kingdom Hearts is a well established series, but sales wise it will not hold a candle to a mainline FF title.



FFXV will destroy KH3, both quality & sales wise!!!!!



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

Im confused by the idea of the KH fanbase growing since KH2. If anything many people may have left the franchise after 2 as there hasnt been a console game since 2005 and the sales of the HH games show that many fans of the series never showed up again after 2. Whos to say they are going to return 9 years later, many may not even game anymore or became a part of that CoD crowd like a few of my mates -_-
