Square Enix confirms updated sales numbers for the original game and its definitive edition re-release.
Dragon Quest fans have been treated to a whole host of exciting new announcements to celebrate the franchise’s 35th anniversary. From Dragon Quest 12: The Flames of Fate to an HD-2D remake of Dragon Quest 3 built on the Octopath Traveler engine to a treasure hunting RPG spinoff Dragon Quest Treasures, we recently got plenty of new reveals to feast our eyes on. At the same time, Square Enix have also provided the updated sales figures for Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age.
In a press release, Square Enix confirmed that Dragon Quest 11 has shipped 6.5 million units worldwide to date. Those numbers include both, the game’s original launch as well as its Definitive Edition re-release. Considering the fact that the game has been out for a few years now and is available across a large number of platforms, not to mention the game’s strong reception from fans and critics, those sales aren’t all that surprising.
Dragon Quest 11 is available on PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. In Japan, the game is also available for the 3DS.
Meanwhile, though Dragon Quest 12 doesn’t yet have a release date (nor have release platforms been announced), it has been confirmed that it’s going to run on Unreal Engine 5.
