Dragon Quest IV rocks sales, magazines at debut


Dragon Quest IV for the DS hit stores yesterday in Japan, and since that nation seems to still exist, apparently there was a large enough supply to at least stave off Armageddon. Per Jeux-France, gamers in Japan snapped up a rumored 360,000 copies in the first day, so we can only assume that there is a whole lot of questing going on today.

But what's a release without a few last minute pages in Famitsu? The magazine laid out a sweet new spread to welcome the title, and you can see it for yourself after the break.

Its wrong that Mario Galaxy sells 250K in its first week, and this remake sells 360K in the first day. Meh.

Anyhow, still nice to see another DS game doing well I suppose. Probably bodes well for hardware sales for the week too.
