Why Dragon Quest XI S Will Be the Switch’s Best Selling 3rd Party Game

Even over Mario+Rabbids. I think Dragon Quest XI S will replace it as the Switch’s best selling 3rd party game. Here are 3 reasons why.

1: Japan

Dragon Quest is bigger than Final Fantasy in Japan. This game could top 2 million alone in Japan. Dragon Quest is only behind Pokemon Smash, and Splatoon when it comes to popularity. That’s quiet an accomplishment.

2: No Ordinary Port

This is like a new game. It has tons of new content, I will name a few of the new features. A 16-bit mode, new story elements, full Japanese voice acting, new creatures you can ride on, a horse racing mode and full orchestrated music. I haven’t touched the surface of the new content in this version. It’s staggering!

3: It’s a huge RPG you can play on the go.

Those are very popular on the Switch. Games like Skyrim and Diablo 3 have done big numbers on the Switch. Also, games like Octopath Travler, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and the Final Fantasy games have done great as well. This will be an attractive game to those consumers who need a new RPG itch to scratch.

Square put a lot of effort into this game. The graphics are close to the PS4 version and there are so much new content to warrent a purchase, even if you’ve bought it on the PS4. This will also show people who don’t think 3rd party games can sell on the Switch just how big a game like this can be. Buy this game Nintendo fans!

Sales projection:

Japan: 2.2 million

Europe: 700k

America: 1.2 million.

Other areas: 200k

Overall: 4.3 million physical and digital.
