Square has announced that they shipped a total of 1.8 million copies of Final Fantasy X-2 to stores across Japan. The more than two hundred fans assembled at the Tsuyata store in Shibuya were not only greeted by Kumi Kouda (Yuna's voice actress), but also by Square CEO and president Youchi Wada and Enix CEO Keiji Honda. According to Wada, it is possible to complete the game within 20 to 30 hours, however it would allow for up to 100 hours of gameplay as well. Asked about Final Fantasy X-3, Wada refused to comment, saying it would be the wrong time to comment on a possible sequel at the day of Final Fantasy X-2's release. After the countdown event, the lucky boy who was first in line was allowed to shake hands with Kouda, Wada and Honda. Among other goodies, fans received straps as presents upon purchasing the game.
