The latest in the juggernaut franchise sets new sales records for the series in Japan.

Today Square Enix announced that Dragon Quest IX for Nintendo DS is the best-selling Dragon Quest game of all time in Japan. Square Enix has shipped 4.15 million copies of the game so far.

The previous record was held by Dragon Quest VII, a Playstation 2 title, which sold 3.68 million copies. Square Enix has been continuously supporting the game with new downloadable content on a weekly basis, and will continue to do so for the game's first year post-release.

Expectations are for the game to sell upwards of five million copies, according to Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada.

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies has not been announced for a North American release as of yet.

Who thinks DQX might not be on the Wii anymore?

I think I know what might not be on ANY system anymore, if it doesn't sell significantly higher than previous entries...

What?!? You mean the game's namesake might finally become true?

If I may enter a small correction.  Dragon Quest VII is a PS1 title.
