Dragon Quest 7 for 3DS shipped 1 million copies in Japan

We'll have to wait to learn how many copies it sold, but Dragon Quest 7 for 3DS has shipped 1 million copies in Japan, according to Siliconera.

Square Enix published the remake last week on Feb. 7, and it sounds like a huge improvement over the popular PlayStation original. Redone, 3D visuals are only a small part of the appeal as gameplay and other mechanics have been redesigned as well.

Fans are banking on the game coming to North America although such a localization has yet to be announced.

The version that released in 2000 shipped 4.1 million copies, according to Japanese magazine Famitsu. We'll have a breakdown of actual sales soon, when sales tracker Media-Create posts the weekly software charts.
