You’ve probably already heard about how well Dragon Quest XI has performed in Japan and to be honest it was a given. However, Square Enix has revealed that the game is only on track to reach the lower end of Square Enix’s unit expectations. The reason for this is that the company is concerned about the Nintendo 3DS version of the game. I’m guessing that this is because it’s older hardware now and I suspect they are wondering how they can continue to push sales on that specific platform even though it has performed incredibly well in the Media Create sales charts.
A: We believe that we can reach the lower end of our unit sales plan. Our goal is to reach the upper end of that plan, but we believe that that will depend on how sales of the NINTENDO 3DS version trend going forward.
