Dragon Quest Builders sold through 55% of its initial shipment in Japan
Dragon Quest Builders for Switch is one of the few entries in the franchise released in the west ahead of Japan. The Japanese release just took place on March 1.
For the week of February 26, we heard that Dragon Quest Builders sold just under 30,000 copies. Dengeki further reports that it sold through about 55% of its initial shipment in Japan.
The debut Japanese sales of Dragon Quest Builders for Switch aren’t really comparable to the initial PlayStation debut, but it’d be a bit silly to compare them in the first place. This is a somewhat late port at the end of the day, and we also can’t forget that Dragon Quest Builders 2 will be available sometime this year. Long term sales are also possible.
