Square Enix’s Dragon Quest IX, released for DS in Japan last November, will produce 20 billion yen ($190 million) in revenue from 5 million units, Cosmo Securities analyst Takashi Oka said in a research note yesterday.
“It’s not surprising Dragon Quest IX for the portable console sold twice as many units as a version for stationary game machines,” he said.
Cosmo switched its rating on Square Enix’s stock to “neutral plus” yesterday, a move that saw prices gain as much as 6 percent in trading.
Still no release date for DQIX in the west. More on Bloomberg.
