Famitsu is reporting that Dragon Quest IX has sold over 2.3 million units in its first two days on sale in Japan.

The game released over the weekend. Pre-orders for the hugely anticipated DS RPG had topped 2 million.

The title appears to have beaten the launch of its predecessor: Dragon Quest VIII sold 2,237,000 units in its opening 48 hours in 2004.
