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.
Square Enix have announced they’re they;re going to be holding celebrations for the tenth anniversary of Final FantasyXI, yes…it’s been ten years already.
This particular FF game differed from the others in that it was a MMORPG or Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game.
The event called Final Fantasy XI Vana Fest 2012 is scheduled to take place between June 23 and 24. A specific time or place hasn’t been given yet but there is a promotional poster for the event.
All it says is that it will be held somewhere in Tokyo, hopefully more info as it draws near. Another thought is that maybe the event will be taking place over Tokyo, as in the whole of Tokyo, that’d be something.
