Dragon Quest IX: 3.5 Million Served

RPG is selling like hot cakes in Japan

Saying that Dragon Quest is popular in Japan is like saying that Americans are rather partial to hamburgers or that Brits like to indulge in a hot cup of tea every now and then.

Since going on sale July 14th, Dragon Quest IX - the latest entry in the long-running franchise - has shifted an incredible 3.39 million units.

The game is developed by Level-5 and is a DS-exclusive. A western release date is still to be announced.
