Square Enix has announced that Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age has cleared 4 million sales worldwide, combining digital and physical sales
Well deserved, fantastic game and the best JRPG this year.
It was good, but I thought Nier was better. I bought the Japanese version last year, so I put them in the same year. This year's best JRPG for me... I dunno... haven't played anything good released this year from the JRPG side. Probably my wife's favourite will win: Dragon Quest Builders 2 :) That being said, I loved the characters in DQXI and would buy the next game on release as well. I just would have hoped to have a little bit more meaningful exploration and a more expansive world-map like in Souls games (semi-open world)
Great, haven't bought it yet I need to find time to play games 😭😭😭
Well Nier was released last year, and it’s really more an action game then rpg. Great game, but not really comparable to a traditional jrpg like DW.
Originally DQXI was released in July in 2017. I think Nier could be very well compared to a traditional JRPG. Just as much as Tales series are traditional JRPGs, so are Nier and Drakengard games.
Both are different games, hard to say one is better than the other. They are both great games.
@Tapani "I think Nier could be very well compared to a traditional JRPG. Just as much as Tales series are traditional JRPGs, so are Nier and Drakengard games." No offense, dude, but that is just silly. Nier, Drakenguard, and Tales series are action RPGs. Its a completely different sub genre than traditional turn based and ATB JRPGs. Its impossible to get a traditional JRPG fix from action RPGs, whether they are made in Japan or not.
Just got a copy recently.
Excellent Game, best one in years
Hell to the yeah, the game fully deserves this success.
Getting this for Christmas. Can’t wait lol
Shipped or sold? The US/Eu prelease I saw this morning said shipped, which is not the same as sold. Either way, it's a great number.
Put 100 hours into this and enjoyed every minute. And I never beat long rpgs like this but I've completed 2 of the 3 endings. This is easily a GotY contender, but obviously not enough recognition to make it a contender. God of War is top game for the year, but I wouldn't classify them in the same genre so DQ11 takes 2018 top RPG vote from me.
I'm at about 100 hours so far, and still have a long ways to go (I'm anal about talking to everyone, every time they have something new to say).
Well deserved :)
I’d be one. :)
One of my favorite games this year! I hope it continues to sell well in the west.
wow niiice. i havent played my copy yet, i want to get rdr out of the way first to fully embrace myself to DQ
Now please bring over Dragon Quest Rivals & Itadaki Street Crossover for the mean time!
Amazing numbers Congrats DQ team!
Dragon Quest XI seems to be selling about on par with Dragon Quest IX which can be good or bad depending on how you look at it, XI is on 3 platforms (soon to be 4) with the publishers having intentions to make this a big game for western audiences but IX was just on 1 platform with not as much marketing compared to XI.
Loved this game was a blast from start to finish my favorite JRPG this year.
Congrats. It was such a great game, although the middle part of the game is a bit boring.
