Oh no, you guys! Square Enix is slightly disappointed in Dragon Quest X's sales performance! Despite it's clearly doing well, the MMO is not hitting whatever magical expectations SE set for it. I guess that means the DQ brand is now spiraling the drain, right? *BUZZ* Wrong!

The latest Media Create tracking numbers have been released, and the 3DS remake of Dragon Quest VII has sold 827,922 copies in its first week. The game's initial shipment was a very Form 2 Frieza-esque one million, which means a nearly 83% sell-through rate and (I'm assuming) sell-outs in various outlets. This is biggest Japanese launch for a 3DS title overall, and the second largest launch for a DQ remake after DQVI on the DS.

So the status quo is maintained. Japan is still Dragon Quest land.
