I just checked Amazon, and 2 months or so after the announcement, DQ7 is ranked the #7 best selling 3DS game (pre-orders for sure). DQ8 is at #10.

 

Does anyone think the Cartman ideal of "You can't come" drove up demand? I mean its no Fallout 4 sales number, but it seems like nothing to sniff at.

What was it I said earlier this week? Oh, that's right:

 

DQ BE TRENDIN', YA'LL!

 

 

(Seriously though, that's pretty sweet both games are on the Top 10 list. Hopefully that's a good sign!)

That is good news to hear.
I'm hoping Nintendo is going to push the games more in their upcoming directs. They need to push it, have Reggie do something Dragon Quest related. Just little things like that gain attention to a game. Let everyone know they have faith in the series, like they did with IX. It was the first Dragon Quest to push 1 million units in the west, and I feel Nintendo promoting it what lead to that.
Try to get it even higher on that list.

When DQ VII comes out that will be the day I buy my DS

That must be some DS if it has the capabilities to play a 3DS game.

Wow! That's pleasantly surprising, I never thought I'd see Dragon Quest on any best selling list outside of Japan. I cannot wait for VII to come out. It is the DQ game I have the least knowledge of by far and cannot wait to see what it has to offer.

 

Edit: I checked amazon just now and VII was at #6 and VIII was at #9 so hey even better.

Don't know if any of you saw this news too.

 

Amazon Prime members now get 20% off physical video game copies when pre-ordered or within the first 2 weeks of release! I've been a Prime member for years. Excited for this! That's $16 off my DQ orders!

Not sure if preorders count or not, but here is a link that has the Den's code in it, so if it does count, yay :overjoyed2:

Nice, but already pre-ordered though.  If I'm in a financial windfall soon, I'll be more than happy to preorder a few more copies through the den link.

That's what I've been wondering too. I just need to figure out how my pre-orders count since they were both a gift...

I ended up buying three copies of DQ V through the aStore for Christmas Presents this year. They were all very well received.

I haven't seen him around much.

 

 

Screw where's waldo...this is a Dragon Quest board...it's all about, "Where's that damn run-a-holic, EXP-pinata, goofy-taunt-smilin', dodge-a-holic, uber defensive, sarcastic-ridden, joke-a-holic, elusive Platinum bodied slime?"

 

I say we start a contest, call it "Where's Platty?"

I was going to take exception to the Platinum blond comment as it's 100% natural.

Then I reread "Platinum bodied".

 

I'll just run-a-holic outta here.
