The game managed to sell over 303,000 copies in its debut, which is a huge number for the series. That puts the game in the running for one of the best game launches in Japan for the year. And, on top of that, it pushed sales for Dragon Quest XI in all over four million, between physical and digital releases!
Dragon Quest XI arrived on PC and PlayStation 4 just last year, breathing fresh life into an iconic 30-year-old JRPG franchise. While Dragon Quest is a household name to anyone in Japan, the series has only really to get major traction overseas thanks to the success of this latest entry. This is a series that made its name on Nintendo hardware, though, and alongside a cameo in Super Smash Bros.
Ultimate, Square Enix have brought their latest to the newest Nintendo console. This is more than just a port, and the swathe of extra content included makes it clear as day why this version of the game has been branded the Definitive Edition.
