Blue Dragon: lackluster Japanese sales

December 13, 2006

Mystwalker’s RPG, Blue Dragon, did not meet expectations in Japan. We have previously reported on the launch, but it seems that having a pretty girl with a copy of the game was not enough. Since its launch last Thursday, only 70k copies have been sold (43k as standalone games and another 27k with the bundle pack). While 70k is great for a 360 game in Japan, it’s pathetic compared to the sales of games like Kingdom Hearts II, Dragon Quest VIII or Final Fantasy XII. We shall (hopefully soon) see how the game does in the American and European markets.
