Realistically how much can DQXI S sell on Switch two years after the original release ? I think it's pretty hard to predict

IMO even if it wont break any opening records, I am still seeing it as an easy million+ seller. The Switch is on fire right now and DQXI was well received, so I don't see why not. 

You are way more optimistic than me.

My guess is 500k LTD at best.

Its a very late port of a game that released on PS4, 3DS and PC so the majority of people who really wanted Dragon Quest have already played it.

Amazon August 2019 thread

The only version of DQXI available to Nintendo console owners was a 2D retro version on 3DS. It'd be like saying nobody wants to play Resident Evil 2 Remake because it was already on the PS1. The difference between the 3DS version and the PS4 version of DQXI is absolutely massive, and the Switch release has the option to play both and with Japanese voice acting a few other bells and whistles, so it has a huge advantage that most late ports do not have. I'm expecting 800k LTD, though would not be surprised to see it hit a million.



Good day for Nintendo

And Dragon Quest almost enough points to be the third party Switch title with the most points on COMG

Dragon Quest looking like a shoe-in for top third party game. I think it will do better than some people expect due to the Smash Bros. effect, but also not as much as the first release of the game or anything like that.

I think if DQXIS sells well on Switch, regardless if its over 800K or a million or something, it would prove worth it for both Nintendo and Square Enix. Especially if sales in the West are better than expected. 

With Hero (DQ III, IV, VIII, and XI) being in Smash Bros. Ultimate, likely at this point, the best selling fighting game of all-time (even if you include the multiple versions of SFII), Nintendo pushing DQXIS in their Directs, especially allowing the game to lead off their E3 2019 Direct alongside Hero's reveal, and the 10 hour demo available weeks before it launches worldwide on September 27, you cannot really provide a better marketing campaign than that.





P5 on a streak. FF7, Ryza, DS, and Ys increase.



Love seeing Ryza continue to add points. Really think this will get the Atelier franchise to the next tier of recognition.
