Some amazing figures coming out of Japan from Square Enix around their hugely popular, Dragon Quest X, for the Nintendo Wii. The game is subscription based much like World of Warcraft is and as of October has sold 568,000 units of the game. From those copies sold, 400,000 gamers are paying the ¥1,000 monthly fee to take the game further and play online.
Back in September, the game had 300,000 paying subscribers and keep in mind that Final Fantasy XI took approximately 18 months to reach the same number of gamers paying the monthly fee.
But it doesn’t stop there for Square Enix, next up for Dragon Quest X is the Nintendo Wii U.
