Dragon Quest XI To Eclipse Sales Of Pokemon Sun & Moon And Final Fantasy XV Combined According To Exec

Former Famitsu chief editor Hirokazu Hamamura, who is now the president & CEO of Enterbrain, Famitsu’s publisher and brand company of Kadokawa Corporation firmly believes that Dragon Quest XI will perform abnormally well. So well in fact that he recently said at a  Tokyo developer’s seminar that the sales will go above and beyond that of Pokemon Sun & Moon and Final Fantasy XV combined. Hamamura also added “the ‘destructive force’ that is Dragon Quest software (sales) is on a completely different level. There will likely be people who buy both PS4 and 3DS versions as well,”.

With strong and positive predictions that the title will perform well, it’ll be interesting to see the sales figures during the launch period for Dragon Quest XI.

    Yeah, good luck with that. Maybe inside Japan, that might turn out true, but on a global level, Dragon Quest XI will get nowhere near Pokemon.

  2. Speaking of, is it just me or does information on any and all Switch versions seem to be none existent?

    Just seems like a lot of push for 3DS.

    You have to assume he’s talking about Japan only. If so, that’s not unfathomable.

    I don’t see it happening. Smartest thing Pokémon company did is make the game accessible to the whole world.

    I love the series but come on I can’t see this happening at all, not in a million years.

    There’s a difference between being optimistic and being overly optimistic and that difference is clearly evident here.

    If only we lived in a world where Dragon Quest was actually that popular.

    Yeah… I can see a multiplat Dragon Quest easily beating Pokemon, maybe both Pokemon and FF… in Japan. Internationally, I can’t see it beating either Pokemon nor FF.

    If you read source article, you would see that he means sales only in Japan. I don’t know why MNN didn’t include that important fact in their summary.

    It won’t get near that goal, they’d have to sell around 20 million!
