Over 4 million in shipments and sales.
Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age has exceeded over four million copies sold and shipped worldwide, according to Square Enix.
Fans of the Dragon Quest games had to wait a long time for the latest instalment of series; Dragon Quest 8 was the last game to be released on a non-Nintendo console, on the PlayStation 2 back in 2004. Dragon Quest 9 and 10 were both released exclusively on Nintendo consoles, on the 3DS and the Wii, respectively.

The four million figure includes the global shipment and digital sales across all platforms, exceeding game designer, Yuji Horii’s expectations.
“I was truly delighted when I heard the news that Dragon Quest XI had exceeded four million sales worldwide.” said Yuji Horii, the game designer for Dragon Quest. “Back when I created the first Dragon Quest game, over thirty years ago, I could not possibly have dreamed that it would become a series that would cross the seas and be played by people all around the world. This is the eleventh numbered Dragon Quest title, and in depicting a ‘hero’s tale,’ also represents a new beginning for the series.”
Dragon Quest 11: Tales of an Elusive Age is available now on Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC.
