Dragon Quest IX has already gone mental in the Japanese software charts, but Square Enix wants more, much more.

Company president Yoichi Wada has told the Japanese press that, “We’re look at reaching over 5 million copies of Dragon Quest IX shipped.”

Wada went on to say that he hopes the Japanese gaming industry will profit as a whole from the game’s success. However, the improvement is already there to see – if you’re Nintendo that is – as DS sales have rocketed since the RPG’s release.
