Square Enix has revealed that Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age has sold more than 5.5 million copies “shipped and downloaded” worldwide.
That sales tally includes the Nintendo Switch exclusive Definitive Edition as well as the original PlayStation 4, Nintendo 3DS, and PC release.
“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,” explains Dragon Quest series creator and game designer Yuji Horii.
“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!”
The grand role-playing game is filled with memorable characters, an enchanting story, and classic RPG gameplay that you can now play on the go.
You play as a young man who, about to participate in his village’s coming of age ceremony, learns that he is the reincarnation of a legendary hero from a forgotten age.
He sets out to unravel the mystery of his past, but, after revealing his identity to the King, he is branded as “The Darkspawn” and hunted by a relentless army.
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition is now available for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
