Experiences shortages at retail, digital sales appear to be strong

The marvelous Dragon's Crown hit shelves in Japan last week and sold more than 175,000 physical units. The PlayStation 3 and Vita title appears to be a hot commodity, with Atlus apologizing for shortages at retail.

Meanwhile, the publisher's parent company reports Dragon's Crown has shipped 300,000 units. That figure includes digital sales, mind you, indicating many opted to download the game via the PlayStation Store. Those numbers should rise dramatically in the coming weeks and months as Atlus brings the lovely action game to Western shores and satisfies demand at home.
