Dragon Quest VII 3DS Remake Ships 1 Million Copies In Japan


Square Enix have shipped 1 million copies of the Dragon Quest VII remake for Nintendo 3DS, according to a report. The game was released last week on February 7th in Japan.


The original version of Dragon Quest VII shipped 4.1 million copies on the PSOne according to Famitsu. The Nintendo 3DS version features completely redone visuals in 3D, an orchestrated soundtrack, as well as other improvements and additions like the StreetPass trading feature that made Dragon Quest IX such a hit.


We should have a better idea of the game’s first-week sales figures this Wednesday when sales tracker, Media-Create, release their weekly software sales chart as per usual.
