The most recent main entry in the longstanding and incredibly popular (especially in Japan) Dragon Quest series released on July 29th, so the following digital sales numbers took place over only two days, the 29th and 30th. On PlayStation 4 Dragon Quest XI sold 113,182 digital copies, and on 3DS the game sold 62,939 digital copies.
Remember these are digital only sales, so expect a much meatier number to be revealed in the future combining both digital and physical sales numbers. For comparison, the much beloved Splatoon 2 came out on July 21st and sold 60,205 copies digitally, and Gundam Versus released on July 6th and only sold 40,260 digital copies.
