Index Corporation has revealed that they have shipped 300,000 units of Dragon’s Crown in Japan.
These figures includes direct download sales, and out of the total shipment, 180,000 units were sold to customers in the first week. So the first shipment could be sold out within a month.
Either way this has to be great news for Vanillaware as they have taken a big risk with this game and it seems to have paid off.
It comes out on August 6th in the west, and the embargo for the game was up yesterday. The reviews were very polarized but the overall consensus was that it was a great game.
