Dragon Quest IX Release Total Fiasco


The most eagerly awaited blockbuster RPG for some, Dragon Quest IX: Hoshizora no Mamoribito (Guardian of the Starry Skies), for the DS, was recently released, but instead of the usual rapturous reaction its release has turned into a major fiasco, with piracy, negative reactions and dubious characters all spoiling what was doubtless expected to be the biggest DS release for some time, though it is not clear whether sales are affected by this.

The dire financial straits of Japan’s animators appear to show few signs of improving, with a reported average yearly salary of Tokyo-area animators being around a measly $11,000 and the percentage of those leaving the industry entirely at 8 – 9%.

One animator reports a monthly wage of only $700: “I can’t afford a girlfriend, let alone a wife.”

Even a producer from well-known, although oft-troubled, animation studio Gonzo laments:

“Since last year the number of orders for new projects and our fees have been dropping. A 30-minute TV episode contract used to be ¥18,000,000 ($180,000), but now it’s around ¥13,000,000.”
