Dragon Quest Monsters 2

Square Enix may not be all smiles with the Western release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII being met with universally middling reviews, but the release of Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Iru and Luca’s Wonderful Mysterious Keys in Japan might be a source of good news. According to Media Create, the 3DS game debuted in the week of February 3rd to 9th and managed to sell a whopping 443,656 units.

By comparison the next entry Puyopuyo Tetris, also from Square Enix, sold 44,627 units with its debut. Super Heroine Chronicle on the Vita only managed to sell 14,467 units with its debut.

The usual suspects including Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme VS. Full Boost for the PS3 sold 29,647 units for lifetime sales of 299,587 units. Yokai Watch sold 28,407 units (401,606 lifetime sales) while Kirby: Triple Deluxe sold 24,658 units (for 417,115 lifetime sales).

Interestingly Terraria for the PS Vita also had a decent start, selling 15,070 units in its debut. How long it stays with Japanese consumers remains to be seen, especially given the popularity of the Vita in Japan.
