Released in Japan on July 11, 2009, DS role playing game Dragon Quest IX went on to sell 4 million copies in its native Japan. The game is out this year in the West, but before that...

Square Enix will be releasing the game this March in Japan at a budget price.

On March 4, Square Enix is releasing a handful of DS titles for its "Ultimate Hits" line. Those games include Dragon Quest IX, Dragon Quest IV, Dragon Quest V and Final Fantasy IV. Each game will be priced at ¥2,940 (US$32).

Might have been a better idea to announce DQIX as a budget title after it was released abroad and after Western consumers paid full price for the game. Planning, people, planning!
