Hey everyone. Well it seems that after all the begging from fan's last week after square Enix baited them about bringing DQX to consoles, that Dragon quest X won't be making it to North America at all from Hardcore gamer. But the installment after that one might possibly be, and that Wii U might be one of those systems to receive it also. There are also details to XI in a more recent article from siliconera this week about how it's being made at the same time as Dragon Quest Heroes below as well.

From the article
Dragon Quest XI Likely To See North American Release, X Not Coming Westward

We (Hardcore game)recently spoke with Yu Miyake, executive producer and longtime chiseler of JRPG goodness, where it was revealed that much to the developers disappointment, DQX wouldn’t be making its way westward on account of management difficulties between regions. However, more than a spark of hope was offered when Dragon Quest XI came into question.

More details are in the article Metabble provided with in the link.

” Square Enix’s Ryutaro Ichimura said in response to the question of a western release. “Since we were able to announce the Chinese version in Taiwan today, seeing that reaction, I want to spread it even further around the world.”
 Game Watch asked if a potential English version would include the option to switch between English and Japanese voice-overs.
 “We haven’t decided anything about that yet, but if it’d be better to put it in, that’s something we’ll consider moving forward,” Ichimura said.
 Koei Tecmo producer Kenichi Ogasawara added, “If such a need is strong, we’re going to consider it.”

Right now there is a convention in Paris : Japan Expo ( about anime, manga, japanese game ....) and apparently Yuji Hori has announced the localisation of DQ 7 and 8 for Europe !

Dragon Quest VII and VIII for 3DS coming west, according to series creator
 Published 2 mins ago. 1 comment.

Yuji Horii made a boo-boo.

Dragon Quest series creator accidentally shared news that Dragon Quest VII: Warriors of Eden and Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King for 3DS are coming to western territories.
 Reports are coming in from Twitter

:“Yuji Horii has just announced Dragon Quest VII and VIII will be released ‘in French’…?! Apparently a last minute announcement here at Japan Expo. Guess that means both titles at coming West on 3DS. I asked someone from Square Enix and it seems Horii dropping the bomb wasn’t planned.” (via @jkermarrec, 2)

“At Japan Expo, a few hours after our interview, Yuji Horii has confirmed here that Dragon Quest VII and VIII are coming ‘in French.'” (via @FFRing)

“Horii actually did mention 3DS for Dragon Quest VII and VIII localization. The translator got upset when he did.” (via @RedMakuzawa)

Of course, any bit mentioning only the French language is likely due to the announcement taking place at Japan Expo, which is in Paris, France. If it’s released in French, it will be released in English, as well.

Report: Dragon Quest VII And Dragon Quest VIII Remakes Being Localized. July 4, 2015 . 8:09am

Multiple sources are reporting that Yuji Horii has confirmed localized releases for Dragon Quest VII and Dragon Quest VIII at Japan Expo.


Following their interview with Yuji Horii at Japan Expo, Final Fantasy Ring are reporting that Horii let slip that Dragon Quest VII and Dragon Quest VIII for Nintendo 3DS will make it out of Japan “in French”. (Note that Japan Expo takes place in Paris.)
Meanwhile, MakuXV, an editor at Nova Crystallis, also claims that Horii mentioned a localized release for Dragon Quest VII and Dragon Quest VIII, and that his translator “got upset” when he did.

In the past, Square Enix said to Siliconera that they are open to the idea of publishing Dragon Quest VII outside Japan. (Dragon Quest VIII hadn’t been announced at the time.)

At the time, Dragon Quest mobile producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto stated: “We’ve gotten a lot of requests, we really want to do it, but right now, we need to hammer out what kind of resources we’d need to do it. We say this a lot, but, we can’t seem to get to the point where it’s justifiable.”

If today’s reports are to be believed, it appears Square Enix have seen sufficient feedback for them to consider localizing the Dragon Quest 3DS remakes. Bravely Default selling as well as it did probably didn’t hurt.

Square Enix’s Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below video reintroduces everyone to heroes from Dragon Quest IV, V, VII, and VIII.

and more recently


 General : Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below

 Posted Sep 01, 2015
 Our “Old Auntie Gamer” aka “Old-School Pong PC gal” gets a hands-on session with this popular Japanese console game at PAX and calls it good.
 Read more of Carolyn Koh's Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe & the Blight Below.
The entire console gaming thing by passed me completely. I went from arcade games of Centipede and PacMan to PC gaming and it was with a little trepidation when I was assigned to cover fellow writer Rob Lashley’s first session on the first day of PAX (his flight the previous night had been cancelled).

Dragon Quest is an RPG series published under the Dragon Warrior name in the US until 2002 (to avoid conflict with a similarly named pen-and-paper game) when Square Enix was able to register the name Dragon Quest for video games with the US Patents and Trademark Office.
The basic storyline of most Dragon Quest titles have you playing the hero who is saving the land from peril, usually accompanied by a party of group members that are unlocked as you play the game. Recurring elements such as certain boss NPCs and their mascot Slime appear in this latest installment which is an Action RPG for the PlayStation 4 and launches in October in the US.
I was handed the PS4 controller, located the X button and watched the opening trailer. The king of Arba’s body guards Luceus and Aurora are out with a floating jellyfish monster (fans will probably start nitpicking at this point for me not knowing what it is) Prince Healix (hint: he heals) enjoying a festival in the city of Arba when a wave of energy sweeps through. When it passes, the monsters that live and work alongside the humans turn on them.
You choose to play either Luceus who is a bit of a pompous fellow and uses fire powers, or Aurora who is rather a hot head but uses ice powers. Our little flying spaghetti monster prince Healix is our healer and the king of Arba aka “The Royal Rumbler” makes up the rest of the starting party.

As I sat back and used the left toggle to move, the right to shift the camera and the appropriate buttons to attack and use skills, I commented, “This isn’t too bad.” And after a few battles, “Now I see why people like consoles, you can totally sit back on a couch and play the game.”
Then I reached advancement for new attack combos. Okay… 4 squares for this one… 4 triangles for that… That’s doable… 3 squares and a triangle… Press right trigger and what? Wait… Okay. I can do this. Build some skills, get new combos. Lucky me. I had selected/boosted one which had you jump in the air and come down hard. While you are airborne, press R1, square and whaaarrrgarrrble…

The game is beautifully rendered and made me think of Japanese cartoons in its fine polish. There is quite a bit of customization and several characters that you meet and add to your party, all which are playable and each has unique spells and abilities to upgrade. As your characters level and the adventure grows harder, switching out between characters strategically will help players get through certain scenarios. Fans will encounter familiar and iconic characters from the series, from Maya of Dragon Quest IV, Alena and Bianca, to Yangus, the thief with a heart of gold from Dragon Quest VIII. All are voiced and fans can look forward to viewing the cutscenes.

Aside from these characters, you can collect monster medals and summon them on the battlefield as allies, or use their unique skills. In major boss battles, you can summon up to 24 of them to fight by your side. The game does auto-save, but there are also Save Game slots that you can use just before a new encounter in case you want a do-over.
As an Action RPG, Dragon Quest Heroes is pretty epic as you carve your way through swarms of enemies and giant monsters turned evil. The graphics and animation are top notch, the main characters Luceus and Aurora, so typical of Japanese cartoons it took me back to my childhood. From the opening scenes, you know (but your characters don’t) there’s one person responsible for the monsters behavior, and perhaps you find out why Healix did not turn when all the other monsters did. Dragon Quest Heroes promises a rollicking good time for those with better dexterity than me, who enjoy a fun hack n slash with a great storyline.

 General : Dragon Quest Heroes Review - Dynasty Warriors Meets Blue Slime

 Posted Oct 07, 2015
 You’ll forgive the on-the-nose title of this review, hopefully. See, Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below is quite simply a mashup of both Dynasty Warriors and the Dragon Quest series. Like Hyrule Heroes on the Wii U, Dragon Quest Heroes is a PS4 exclusive single-player Action RPG that takes popular characters from the venerable Dragon Quest franchise and slaps them together in an all new tale.
 Read more of Bill Murphy's Dragon Quest Heroes Review - Dynasty Warriors Meets Blue Slime.

Like all Dynasty Warriors games, the action in DQ Heroes can be repetitive, but there’s something inherently fun about mashing buttons and slaying dozens of monsters at a time with fantastic visual aplomb and crazy acrobatic skills. Given the fact that DQH brings Akira Toriyama (the artist behind Dragon Quest, Blue Dragon, Chrono Trigger, and yes… Dragon Ball) and Koichi Sugiyama together again, fans of the Dragon Quest franchise are probably already picking this game up when it launches in the NA and EU next week (on the 13th and 15th respectively).
And that’s OK, because it just so happens that it’s a pretty darned fun time, if you don’t mind a little button mashing. It should be noted that DQH has been out in Japan since February and did so well that a sequel has already been announced. Provided it sells well enough here, the same will likely happen in the West.

There are two main characters, Luceus and Aurora: the royal guards for King Doric of Arba. Doric is one helluva fighter himself and will join your party early on. The kingdom of Arba has lived for eons in harmony with the monsters, but something sinister is driving them mad, and the monsters begin to take over towns across the entire world. You, as either Luceus or Aurora (you’ll switch between all characters in battle, but you pick one for the main story), will travel across the realm hunting down the reason for this dark time.
It ain’t Shakespeare folks, but the cinematics are well done, as is to be expected from a Square Enix game. Additionally, you can choose either English or Japanese voiceovers, so purists don’t have to have the somewhat goofy-sounding English voices if you don’t want to. There are some truly bright spots in the VO though: Tsarevna Alena and Kiryl from DQ4 are particularly funny thanks to their heavy Russian accents and goofy Russian-English way of speaking. It’s clear the translators had a ball with DQH, as everything from the dialog down to the names of the monsters you summon to fight alongside you has some sort of humor injected. And Kiryl’s “ultimate” tension ability? I laughed out loud more than once with that one.
Bear in mind, for at least the first few hours, DQH is a fairly linear game. After you manage to get your airship (would it be a Square Enix RPG without one?), you’ll also get side quests, random maps that uncover new areas, and stuff like that to make things less of a beeline from story mission to story mission. But don’t get too excited. This is still an Omega Force game. You will pretty much be spending all of your time slapping the ever-living crap out of dozens of bad guys at a time. It’s all the little things DQH does that makes things more interesting.

As mentioned briefly above, one of the main things that gives DQH some sense of strategy, especially during the many missions in which you must protect someone or something, is the ability to summon monsters to fight for you. As you beat foes, they may drop Monster Medals. These can be used to summon defending friendly versions of the monsters, or even one-time use monsters that can heal you or buff you in some other way. In light of the fact that so many scenarios are often rehashes of the same idea (defend this, kill all the monsters, or close all the Nightmaw gates), it’s nice to have this extra layer of interaction with missions. You’ll have to mix and match and manage which monsters you want on the field of battle in real time, as some take up more spots on your monster roster than others (like the sturdy Golem).
As you progress through the story, you’ll amass an army of heroes from past Dragon Quest games. From Terry to Maya to Jessica, the major fan favorites are pretty much all there. The downside is that some have very similar move-sets. Terry, Luceus, and Aurora all wield swords and shields, and they all seem to have the same sorts of moves, though Terry’s branch off a bit more. Luceus and Aurora are likely so similar because they’re the “main characters”, but because of this you’ll wind up only wanting one or the other on your party. Being able to switch between playstyles and characters with the L2 button is fun, but only when your party is varied enough make it so. And King Doric? Dude’s a beast. Use him!
If there’s any one real downside to DQH, it’s that they give you this full 4-person part of awesome characters… and completely neglect to put in any form of co-op. Even Hyrule Warriors let Wii U users play together. With the parties of four, Dragon Quest Heroes was absolutely ripe for couch and PSN co-op, but they decided not to include it for whatever reason. It’s a huge blunder, and one that I hope the sequel remedies.
Aside from the surprising lack of MP, DQH is a very polished and entertaining hack n’ slash RPG. It’s camera leaves a lot to be desired, as it can often get lost and it really needs to be able to zoom out more from the action. It’s something I dealt with, but it was a noticeable issue and one that doesn’t have an easy fix.

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below won’t entirely scratch that JRPG itch for a true Dragon Quest, but fans of Action RPGs will find it more than filling. With several dozen hours of gameplay, loads of side quests, items to craft and collect, and achievements to earn, DQH is a lot like a JRPG fan’s version of Diablo. It would be nice if the game was coming to other platforms, but this one’s a PS4 exclusive in the West. October is a really full month for games, but if like me you enjoy a solid Action RPG more than most other games, this one’s a no brainer.
GAMEPLAY – 8 Dragon Quest Heroes brand of the Dynasty Warriors action is top notch. Add in the monster medals, the ability to switch between four heroes, and bashing in dozens of monsters at a time and you have a treat for the Action RPG fan. However, like all DW games, it gets more a little repetitive.
VISUALS AND SOUND – 8 The art and music of Akira Toriyama and Koichi Sugiyama do more than enough to make you forget that DQH was made for both PS3 and PS4. I wish the English VO was better, and more fully applied, but it’s solid enough.
LONGEVITY – 7 You could easily get several dozen hours out of this one. But chances are, unless you’re a completionist, you’ll stop once you’ve played through the story and won’t come back.
VALUE – 9 Your standard $60. For the amount of hours you’ll get, with no Day One DLC or microtransactions I’m aware of, this one’s a fair and honest “buy it all for one price” game. A rarity these days.
POLISH – 8 The camera. This is my big detractor. Like FFXV’s demo before it, Square Enix seems to want to keep you close to the action, which is fine… but when things get hectic as they do in Omega Force games you want to be able to pull back and get a better view of the situation.

During this year’s Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, DualShockers got the chance to ask Dragon Quest Producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto a few questions. [Thanks, DualShockers.]  When asked if it would be a possibility that the upcoming Dragon Quest Builders would receive a port for the Nintendo NX, Fujimoto noted that “Square Enix is aware” of the compatibility between the Dragon Quest series and Nintendo’s consumers. Additionally, he also mentioned the fact that Dragon Quest Builders would be a good match for the upcoming console, seeing as it is a “family-oriented game.” However, while they are considering the possibility of an NX port, Fujimoto could not confirm if the port will eventually happen.
Dragon Quest Builders will release for the PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 on October 11th in North America and October 14th in Europe. Read more stories about Dragon Quest Builders & PlayStation 3 & PlayStation 4 & PlayStation Vita on Siliconera.

Dragon Quest XI confirmed for NX, simultaneous launch with PS4 and 3DS versions suggested

Published 2 mins ago. 1 comment.


Interview excerpt from the latest issue of Nintendo Dream.

The October issue of Nintendo Dream features a round-table discussion between Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii, Pokemon series producer Junichi Masuda, and Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai.

During the interview, Horii confirms an NX version of Dragon Quest XI. Horii initially confirmed an NX version when Dragon Quest XI was first announced for PlayStation 4 and 3DS, but Square Enix then back-tracked its statement saying it was only “considering launching” on the platform.
Horii also suggests that all three versions will be released simultaneously, as “spoilers will emerge if we release one version earlier.”
Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time is aiming for release in Japan before May 27, 2017. Nintendo’s NX is due out a couple of months earlier, in March 2017.
Get the transcript below,English Ver.
Masahiro Sakurai: Well then, I would like to ask about each of your new games. First, Dragon Quest XI. The 11th installment in the series will be released simultaneously on Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 4, and including NX it’s coming out on three platforms, right?

Yuji Horii: That’s right. The use of hardware is different for each system, so it’s quite a challenge.

Sakurai: Thank you for working so hard.

Horii: However, we’re making the 3DS version in both 3D and 2D. I asked my staff, “Is that something we can do?” And they said, “We’ll do it.” So we decided, “then let’s do it.”

Junichi Masuda: I get the feeling that means there will be four versions across three platforms then, yeah?

Horii: That’s right. There are a lot of difficulties because of that. Each one has a different look to it, and there’s also a PlayStation 4 version, so if we make a small fix then we have to fix it across every version.

Sakurai: I see. Including things like the release date, it gets dreadful when development is inevitably drawn out and the debugging piles up… But shifting away from the release date, they’re not going to be released apart from each other, right? Since Dragon Quest games are story-driven.
Horii: That’s right. Spoilers will emerge if we release one version earlier. (Laughs.) However, we’re a little concerned about the sense of distance in movement. It’s different for each of the supported hardware.
Sakurai: Oh, is that so?

Horii: The movement in the 2D of the 3DS version, and the movement in the 3D of the 3DS version and the PlayStation 4 version definitely feels different when it’s in action. However, there are concerns when making several versions at the same time, and to that extent it’s difficult, so we’re making the game to the best of our ability.

Sakurai: I made Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U at the same time, but it was nevertheless difficult. Since you’re making it for hardware from different companies, I would think that it’s even more difficult, so please by all means do your best.

Horii: Indeed. All of the staff is working very hard, so please look forward to it.
