Summary

Developed by Level 5 (the developers of Dragon Quest VIII, Dark Cloud and Rogue Galaxy) Dragon Quest IX unites the key components that made the previous Dragon Quest titles such as success.

Horii and Sugiyama are on board to provide their talents as DQIX takes the series in a decidedly different direction; for the first time, the DQ franchise has an action-oriented title where battles take place on the field (much like Crystal Chronicles).

I like this game a lot, a charming adventure with very fun turn-based combat. I'm glad it sold well in the west.

@StreaK: yes I was wrong, my comment is pretty old and I didn't really know how much FF sold in japan, but still Dragon Quest sells a little better

@StreaK FFVIII isn't the fastest selling JRPG of all time, that would be Pokemon Black/White for the DS.

@leyen: Huh??? FFVIII sold 3.63 million in Japan and this did 4.35 million. Not even close to double. It didn't even sell a million more. Plus, FFVIII is still the fastest-selling JRPG of all time. Did over 2.5 million in one week.
Also, FF sells a million throughout the entire world and DQ is only relevant in Japan, really.

Best selling DQ game ever at 5.74M, more than 500k more than DQVIII.
