I'm interested in seeing the numbers for the US. I bet they're still low even with a bigger market.

The US just doesn't care about DQ.

I wonder what SquareEnix hates so much about Nintendo systems. Like we just had Octopath, another big hit on Switch, and they're still saying their games only sell on PS4/PC.

We know it sold 100k+ on Steam, which is similar to Tales games in a same amount of time. No idea about PS4 numbers.

Well of course Dragon Quest sells more on the PS4 then Switch when the Switch hasen't even gotten the game yet.

You sure showed us.

Most likely, they just want Nintendo to foot the bill for DQ on their systems in NA. It's what they did for all the others on them here. Nintendo published them, did the marketing, etc. ….in fact, that's also the case for Octopath here, too.

Basically, SE are a******s.

Buddy, they’re in the middle of optimizing DQ11 for switch. If they didn’t like Nintendo, they wouldn’t even bother. Not to mention, they made an entirely different version of the game exclusively for 3ds...

For years that was the Famicom and Super Famicom; then it was the PlayStation, the PlayStation 2, and the Nintendo DS. But times have changed, and Horii said that "in this day and age… when you think of where the biggest market is, at least for North America, we can say it's for PS4 and PC, which is why we're bringing the game to those platforms."


Even better then the Switch, huh? I guess thats why they prioritized those versions and didn't even consider releasing the 3DS version.

Considering both pc and Ps4!run on x86 architecture so releasing on both systems is easy, yes, pc and ps4 are the best markets.
