Square Enix’s latest annual report has revealed that the Dragon Quest franchise has sold over 85 million units worldwide as of March 2022. Further, this amount includes both physical and digital units.
Congratulations to Square Enix, and here’s hoping Dragon Quest Treasures and the still-elusive Dragon Quest XII perform well. The former is launching for Nintendo Switch later this year. An HD-2D remake of Dragon Quest III is also in the works, but not much information on it has been shared.
Still, it’s quite unfortunate that Dragon Quest X has not received any form of official localization, even with a purely offline version available in Japan. It’d be fantastic for the West to at least receive that title, but I’m not crossing my fingers.
Dragon Quest Treasures is releasing for Nintendo Switch worldwide on December 9, 2022.
Dragon Quest Treasures follows Erik and Mia, both prominent characters from Dragon Quest XI, with Erik even having been a party member. However, in this title, these siblings are taken away from the Viking ship they normally reside in to a new world called Draconia, housing a myriad of treasures, including the Seven Dragonstones. Conveniently, Erik and Mia can communicate with the monsters here, allowing for integral cooperation regarding treasure hunting.
