Final Fantasy has reached a new height. Square Enix has announced that the role-playing series, which began as a last effort for company survival in 1987, has shipped over 100 million units worldwide.

“We are extremely proud of what the Final Fantasy franchise has achieved over the years and continue to be extremely excited about the future. I would like thank all of our fans, partners and development teams for their support,” said Square Enix president and CEO Yoichi Wada.

The latest game in the franchise, Final Fantasy XIII-2, is currently on display at E3 in Los Angeles. We’ve posted 15 minutes of gameplay from our test run last night.
