Dragon Quest VII 3DS Remake Ships a Million in Japan

on February 12, 2013 12:34 PM

The 3DS remake of Dragon Quest VII was released last week in Japan, but we don’t need to wait for tomorrow’s Media Create software charts to know that it sold very well.

Today Square Enix sent a press release stating that the game, that updates one of the best game of the Dragon Quest series to today’s standards including a redone soundtrack performed by the¬†Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, surpassed a million shipped units.

I’m quite sure it’s due to the overly weird live action commercial in Spanish aired in Japan.

Puns aside, that’s definitely quite an achievement for a remake of a game that many already have on their PS2, and hopefully it’ll raise the chances for the publisher to consider a western localization. Come on Square Enix, you know you want to do it.
