Square Enix have released sales information for the 6 month period ending on September 30, 2012. This report confirms that Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] (which released in Europe on July 20, 2012, and North America on July 31, 2012) has sold over 650,000 copies in both Europe and North America, from its release, up until September 30. Thanks to Gematsu for the find.
If we include Japanese sales, which were confirmed to be over 310,000 copies as of May 13, 2012, then we can say for sure that Kingdom Hearts 3D has shipped at least 960,000 copies worldwide-- however, factoring in the Japanese sales since May 13, and the International sales since September 30, we could estimate that Kingdom Hearts 3D has sold above 1 million copies worldwide.
