Dragon Quest X Announcement Sends Square’s Stocks Plummeting

on September 6, 2011 7:00 PM

Japanese mega publisher Square Enix has undergone a shocking stock drop over the last few hours. To be exact, their stocks have dropped by a serious 11%. I’m not exactly knowelegable when it comes to the workings of the stock market, but that seems fairly severe. This drop is seemingly attached to the recent reveal of Dragon Quest X, an MMO exclusive to the Wii and Wii U.

What I really want to know is why Square is acting like this is a legit entry into the DQ series. It’s an MMO ¬†for God’s sake.¬†Think they’ll be able to sell enough people on DQX to pick their stocks back up?
