Dragon Quest Sales History

07/31/08

In light of DQV's DS re-release and subsequent destruction of the island of Japan (834k in 2 weeks!), I thought we should take a look at the series history and how the mainline titles have sold.

The following is a chart that shows the DQ series (non-remake, non-spinoff). Data is compiled from multiple sources including Famitsu and Magicbox. Enjoy!
