The Nintendo 3DS doesn't seem to be releasing its vice-like grip on the Japanese gaming public, with Square Enix's Dragon Quest VII proving to be the next in a long line of smash hit titles for the format in The Land of the Rising Sun.

Square Enix's remake of the PlayStation original launched in Japan on February 7th and has sold 827,922 copies in just four days - that's almost all of the one million units that were initially shipped to retailers by the publisher.

Are you looking forward to getting your hands on the game when it eventually launches in the West? Drop us a comment to let us know. In the meantime, check out the Japanese commercial for the game, which is live action and in Spanish (naturally!):
