A few weeks ago, Square Enix started a new type of cooperative Dragon Quest IX quest. These quests require that large groups of players team up to perform tasks. The first such quest was simple: get 500,000 players to submit their DQIX play data via Wi-Fi. Last week, players succeeded in this quest and were given a promised reward: an appearance by Dragon Quest Sword's Setia as a guest character.
Square Enix's plan was to use the data acquired through the quest to share stats about DQIX with other players. Today, it did just that. A National Census page page opened up at the DQIX Square Enix Members site. The page shares play data based off 677,350 (that's right -- they totally beat the 500,000 goal, it seems) data submissions.
The data is split into four pages: Special Data and Ranking, Profile Information, Battle Information, and Character Information.
Here are a few of the stats.
