Dragon Quest selling well in Japan? Naaaah.

But somehow, that’s just what it’s doing. According to Famitsu (via andriasang), the latest installment in the ultra popular franchise continues its rampage around Japan, surely giving Godzilla a gray hair or two in the process.

The game has, as of July 26, sold a total of 3,217,502 copies. Can five million be far off?

We’ll give it until the end of the year. If it hasn’t reached the big five-OOOOOO by then, we’ll eat something. Not a hat factory, though. We already ate that.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
