Square Enix announced that their RPG Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of Elusive Age has shipped over 5.5 million copies globally since its release on PlayStation 4 and PC-via Steam in September. This count includes copies sold on PS4, Switch, 3DS, and PC. This announcement comes after the company revealed the game sold 4 million copies in November.
Dragon Quest series creator and game designer Yuji Horii commented on the latest milestone: “I strongly believe that this figure has only been achieved thanks to our fans who have always loved the Dragon Quest series and also the new players who discovered Dragon Quest or JRPGs through this title. If I could ever go back in time to meet myself when I was still making the very first Dragon Quest, I would love to tell him, ‘In 30 years’ time, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age has been released and loved by international fans beyond seas and languages.’ I will carry on doing my very best to deliver further Dragon Quest titles to our fans worldwide. Thank you very much to all the fans who have enjoyed the title!”
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of Elusive Age was the start of an exciting new adventure in the Dragon Quest series that allowed players to jump in without any knowledge of the previous titles. However, there is still plenty to discover for fans of the series. Additionally, the team mentions that the accessible battle system played a part in getting the game in new hands.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of Elusive Age tells the story of a warrior who has just discovered his fate. After a bad run-in, he teams up with a helpful adventurer name Erik and other members to travel through the world of Erdrea and save the world.
