    w0w. just w0w. bravo DQVII

  • Dede Ogbe

    Wow god and the fate paradox revolution bombed, big time! Makes one wonder if it would have performed alot better if it was released for the vita instead and advertised properly.

    • http://twitter.com/RPGFan2k Stealth

      but its still getting localized.

      It wasnt advertised

      • Dede Ogbe

        hopefully its handled better in terms of marketing over here. Its a real shame whats happening to it. Deserves better.

          nis america will do a better job

      • almostautumn

        It’s official? When did they announce it will have an english release?
        I’m really excited for it; Z.H.P. was just an outstanding title, and I’m more than ready to sink dozens of hours into that style of gameplay again. And in HD too!

        • http://twitter.com/RPGFan2k Stealth

          its going to be official next week at the nisa event

  • MrKappa

    Dragon Quest making those moves. Opening week and almost at a million.

    Who need a graphic like FFXIII when we can hire Studio and Mangaka to do the beautiful artwork .

    • http://www.squarealliance.com/ Zackasaur

      FFXIII has immensely more impressive art, both conceptually and in implementation.

      • http://profiles.google.com/dnlblue Daniel blue

        That’s really down to personal preference. Not everyone enjoys FF’s technochic style, nor Nomura’s fashion taste. DQ VII on PSX was an ugly game, I’ll give you that, but Toryiama’s artwork is always charming and fits the setting pretty well.

    • YangTerlupakan

      Actually I dont like DQ-style graphic from Akira Toriyama and more like FF XIII art style graphic

    • PrinceHeir

      we need more Ni No Kuni :D

    Damn, I want Fantasy Life in the west…

  • shogunknight

    0.8 million, in a week!! Thats what some games get for going multiplatform and international.

  • http://www.facebook.com/InternationalGamer1 Christopher Bosak

    I still to this day have yet to play Dragon Quest.

  • http://profiles.google.com/dnlblue Daniel blue

    Unsurprisingly, Dragon Quest sells like hotcakes, despite being a remake. Hope it ocmes to the West, since I never got to finish the orginial on PSX.

  • Haku_Luvs_You

    Nice numbers for DQ! And Animal crossing is still selling well.

  • almostautumn

    Man, Animal Crossing really paved the way for the future of the 3DS. I know DQ would have been a success despite, but now with all these new 3DS owners it was a practical shoe-in.
    Very cool stuff— so now Sony better go make a title or support a dev doing exactly Animal Crossing and bring it on to Vita!
