Square Enix has come out with some interesting news in a recent press release (courtesy of Gamesindustry.biz): Dragon Quest XI, along with its Definitive Edition, has surpassed 5.5 million physical and digital copies sold worldwide, across all platforms.
Dragon Quest series creator and game designer Yuji Horii made the following remarks in response to this news:
“I strongly believe that this figure has only been achieved thanks to our fans who have always loved the DRAGON QUEST series and also the new players who discovered DRAGON QUEST or JRPGs through this title. If I could ever go back in time to meet myself when I was still making the very first DRAGON QUEST, I would love to tell him, ‘In 30 years’ time, DRAGON QUEST XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age has been released and loved by international fans beyond seas and languages.’ I will carry on doing my very best to deliver further DRAGON QUEST titles to our fans worldwide. Thank you very much to all the fans who have enjoyed the title!”
