Square Enix just announced today that Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, has surpassed 4 million copies shipped worldwide and sold digitally across all of its currently released versions. It’s the newest entry in the main Dragon Quest series and only just released in the West this past September. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you can find the launch trailer here. And down below is a message from series creator, Yuji Horii, thanking fans for their support:

I was truly delighted when I heard the news that Dragon Quest XI had exceeded four million sales worldwide. Back when I created the first Dragon Quest game, over thirty years ago, I could not possibly have dreamed that it would become a series that would cross the seas and be played by people all around the world. This is the eleventh numbered Dragon Quest title, and in depicting a ‘hero’s tale,’ also represents a new beginning for the series.

When I think that there are now over four million of these heroes all around the world, and each one has gone on their own individual adventure, it reminds me how glad I am we made the game. I would like to express my sincere thanks to all the people who played Dragon Quest XI, both the fans of the previous games and the new fans who started with this one. Thank you all.
