Dragon Quest IX tops 2 million preorders
Dragon Quest IX has surpassed 2 million pre-orders in Japan, Nikkei Industrial Paper reports.
Dragon Quest IX is arguably the biggest RPG series over in Japan, surpassing its rival Final Fantasy in a way it's never managed to duplicate in the West.
Despite a shocking change of platform the ninth entry in the series seems to be just as popular as ever if preorders are anything to go by.
Square Enix heads will be pleased - that's two million very early sales guaranteed - not to mention many more from people who don't preorder the title.
