Japanese fans of the original game did not appear to like film due to the turn of the events that takes place within the plot that deviate from the original to make it an Isekai story, contrary to expectations that it would be an adaptation of the original game story.[2] The film was also criticized for not using the original Akira Toriyama character designs [3] as well as the decision to use regular popular actors instead of professional voice actors.

Author Saori Kumi noticed that the name of the protagonist, Ryuka (Luca), appears to have been taken from the 1993 Dragon Quest V novelization that she wrote, as the protagonist does not have that name in the video game (the default name is Abel), which prompted her to sue the film's production.

In box office sales, the film sold 215,000 tickets, earning ¥309 million JPY ($2.91 million USD) on its first week, placing fifth in the Japanese box office of that week. [5] As of January 2020, Dragon Quest: Your Story has reportedly earned $11,114,288 USD in total from the Japanese box office. [6]
