Enix has announced that Dragon Warrior VII will ship for the North American Sony PlayStation on November 1. The game has sold more than 4 million copies to date in Japan, and it's the best-selling PlayStation game ever in that territory. Across all platforms, the game is the third-best selling game of all time in Japan.
"Based upon the tremendous sales success of Dragon Warrior III for the Game Boy Color and the anticipation surrounding the launch of Dragon Warrior Monsters 2, there is no doubt that the Dragon Warrior phenomenon has crossed the Pacific and hit our shores," said Paul Handelman, president of Enix America. "With the overwhelming success of the franchise this year and strong support at retail, an October ship date for Dragon Warrior VII makes sense strategically, as it will afford us the time to respond to consumer demand during the key holiday season."
