No one can deny that Dragon Quest IX has gotten off to a tremendous start in Japan. In just two days, 2.3 million copies of the game were sold. Additionally, shipment numbers have already exceeded 3 million. With these facts in mind, it’s no surprise that Square Enix President Yoichi Wada is expecting large total shipments. According to Wada, the four player wireless mode in Dragon Quest IX may attract an expanded audience.

“We expect Dragon Quest IX’s shipments to reach more than five million, and expect it to bring life to the game market as a whole.”
