Dragon Quest X For Wii U, PC, And Android, Has 300,000 Daily Active Players In Japan

Dragon Quest X producer Yosuke Saitohas revealed to 4Gamer that the Wii U, PC, and Android title currently has 300.000 daily active players in Japan. User numbers increased for Dragon Quest X when the company released version 2 at the end of last year.

“We’ve only released the game in Japan, so you’ll be getting only Japan’s numbers, but we have about 300,000 people a day who actively enjoy the game. Thanks to having released version 2 at the end of last year, we’ve had even more active players since then.”

“At the time, we feared that version 2 could have actually decreased the amount of players. However, that didn’t happen so we were relieved. Well, it was a little unexpected that people who purchased version 2 and haven’t even been to Lendagia [One of the main continents in Dragon Quest X].”

Dragon Quest X Could Get A Western Release

Dragon Quest X producer Yosuke Saito has explained that the game could be released here in the west. Saito said that if Dragon Quest X did come to North America, Europe and Australia then it would be changed slightly to suit western markets. Saito concluded by saying that they would need to divide the running of it by country or region. Therefore, they are thinking about having separate servers for each country.

 “Of course, however, as for whether it’ll be run in the Dragon Quest style in the overseas market, every nation has its own play style and sensibilities, so I don’t think it’ll be a single game worldwide like with Final Fantasy 11.”

“This is just my personal viewpoint, but different countries consume their games at different speeds and the way the communities are run also differ. Even the way people enjoy seasonal events is different, so I think we need to divide the running of it by country or region. So we’re thinking about having separate servers for each country.”

Dragon Quest X Is Not Meeting Sales Expectations

Square Enix is now in the red after the company failed to meet sales expectations for the period of April to December 2012. The blame is partly thought to lay with the company’s Dragon Quest X which is currently available on Wii in Japan. MSN Japan says that sales of the game have failed to meet the company’s expectations. However, Square Enix says that sales of Dragon Quest X are making steady progress. Dragon Quest X comes out on Wii U in Japan next month.

“The slump is reportedly down to the company’s new online RPG venture, Dragon Quest X,” reports MSN. “While the disappointing financial turn for the company can be partially attributed to the burden of running the new online service, it is also down to game sales not meeting expectations. The Wii (and soon to be Wii U) game is however, making ‘steady progress’ according to Square Enix.
