Dragon Quest IX sells almost 2.5 million copies in 2 days

The latest entry in Square Enix's popular Dragon Quest series has sold 2 million 318 thousand copies in two days.

This surpasses the recent record set by Pokemon Diamond and Pearl for fastest DS sales but falls just short of Final Fantasy VIII's 2.5 million opening week.

However, Dragon Quest IX likely has a faster rate of sale as Final Fantasy VIII's sales were based off a 4 day period - Dragon Quest IX has only been on sale for two.

Many were worried that the move to the handheld Nintendo DS hardware could damage the series sales, but it's proved to be a killer combination.
