Dragon Quest IX Breaks Dragon Quest Sales Records

Square Enix aren't so preoccupied with the success of Final Fantasy XIII that they've forgotten about their other mega-bucks franchise, Dragon Quest IX, and how it's also breaking sales records.

In a statement issued yesterday by the company, it was revealed that sales of Dragon Quest IX on the DS have just pushed past the 4.15 million barrier, allowing the game to pass the lifetime sales of Dragon Quest VIII and become the biggest-selling game in the series.

And that's before it's even out in the West, where DQVIII sold half a million copies. So, yeah, that 4.15 million figure should be a lot healthier by the end of 2010.
