yep.....very sad. At least other companies such as Bandai Namco (Ni No Kuni) and others are releasing good quality JRPGs to the states. guess if it is not a guaranteed hit SE will not pull the trigger. Then again ever since FF13 was released the once King of RPGs (Square Enix) has been a laughing stock of many internet forums. Sad too because back when SE implimented Slime Knights there was a growing fan base and then they just cut it off and it has suffered since then. Sadly SE has basically lost all of my business and many many other peoples as well. Their lack of fan appreciation is just sickening at times.

I already own DQ8 for PS2, but if it gets re-released over here in any form I MIGHT re-purchase it. But I'm conflicted, because there's a potential clash of messages in there. A purchase could be seen as, "yes, we want more Dragon Quest," but it could also be taken as, "yes, we want you to waste our time with more god-forsaken smartphone ports instead of releasing worthwhile versions of games on real game systems."

I loved playing Dragon Warrior Monsters during my childhood years - much more so than the Pokémon games which I also owned.
There are many people I personally know who would instantly preorder the 3DS version if it were released in the UK and Europe.
I myself do not own a 3DS (only DSi and older consoles) but would definitely buy one solely to play Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry's Wonderland 3D if it was released over here. I am sure there are plenty of other people who would do the same.

Due to the 3DS region locking, we are unable to import the Japanese version of Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry's Wonderland 3D .
The game itself exists in Japanese, there are countless fluent Japanese and English speakers who could translate the entire game’s text into good English for you. All that would remain would be for you to patch it into the game and release it as a digital download on the 3DS in our regions.

There would be no logistics involving shipping cartridges around the world, or preparing a set number of cartridges vs anticipated sales – digital downloads make it all easy for you (look at Steam's success!)

If you want to advertise the game a bit, just send a few posters to GAME stores / Gamestop stores to advertise the release of the game...

Please, please consider this... don't let us down - we have patiently waited more than two years already!

Great news. Im hoping to see Harry (DQV) and Ashlynn (DQVI) in DQH! Also, did you know this will be the first time Jessica and Yangus will be dubbed in japanese? DQVIII only got voice acting in the international releases, that's why the mobile port doesnt include the voice acting, vecause it was based on the japanese version of VIII!

Also, after following a few accounts on twitter, i came across two that seemed interesting. One of them is the co-writer of DQX, Jin Fujisawa (@JIn_Fujisawa (twitter.com/JIn_Fujisawa)); and the other is one of DQX's producers, Yosuke Saito(@SaitoYosuke_Z (twitter.com/SaitoYosuke_Z)). I'll try to get in contact with them.

Im angry at them too (heck, its my favourite gaming series), but i won't rush to their site and start spilling hate but try to ask nicely. And what you say won't happen since Mr. Horii said he doesnt think smartphones are the future of gaming and since he wants the series to be played in big screens. The only thing that will happen is that they'll probably discuss if they should bring more DQ titles [PLEASE, BRING THE 4 3DS TITLES and DQ10] or port spin offs to mobiles...

"There's a new DQ in development. Apparently its gonna be“taking on a new genre.” (Gematsu) "

I have to assume this is DQ11, and it makes me so angry, you can probably see steam coming off of my head. Did SE not learn their lesson when their fans revolted against DQ9, until SE changed it back to turn-based? Did they not learn their lesson from Bravely Default's success?

I'm so sick of this industry pulling stuff like this. They're FORCING turn-based games into the background, as tiny phone and handhelds games. Gee, I wonder why they're losing popularity. /sarcasm

All it would take, is one modernized, console, turn-based RPG, to repopularize the genre. But, as things are, I see little reason to be involved in modern gaming, whatsoever.

Without any details about this game, I can already say with 100% certainty, that I will NOT be buying it.

"There's a new DQ in development. Apparently its gonna be“taking on a new genre.” (Gematsu) "

I have to assume this is DQ11, and it makes me so angry, you can probably see steam coming off of my head. Did SE not learn their lesson when their fans revolted against DQ9, until SE changed it back to turn-based? Did they not learn their lesson from Bravely Default's success?

I'm so sick of this industry pulling stuff like this. They're FORCING turn-based games into the background, as tiny phone and handhelds games. Gee, I wonder why they're losing popularity. /sarcasm

All it would take, is one modernized, console, turn-based RPG, to repopularize the genre. But, as things are, I see little reason to be involved in modern gaming, whatsoever.

Without any details about this game, I can already say with 100% certainty, that I will NOT be buying it.

The biggest turn-based franchise in the world is Pokémon and this means that the biggest audience that will be receptive to this type of title is on the 3DS. Aiming for either the WiiU or mobile phone as the main platform is a waste of effort. Bravely Default is a really great game, unashamedly turn-based and for how well made it is deservedly very successful. That shows there is room to cash in on those who want a different turn based game and targeting at that market on 3DS is what could make this series really big in the west. DQ has so much potential and I don't believe it is being realised.

That's a logical fallacy. People go where the games are. The fact that turn-based games have been forced onto handhelds and phones, is the very reason that they declined in popularity.

SE just does not care about its American DQ7 fans. This is blatantly obvious. There are a couple of options open to SE, but they are not mentioning ANY plans of pursuing them.

1. Kickstarter: To test the waters, SE could start a KS plan to test the fans' commitment to this game on the 3DS. I would contribute.

2. PSN: SE has MANY Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, etc games on the Playstation Network as downloadable games. Why wouldn't they release Dragon Warrior VII on the PSN? It made sense when they were planning to release it on the 3DS, but now they are saying it is too costly to redo all the text. So, why not release it on the PSN?

So, why doesn't SE do anything? Apathy. They just don't care.

Fine. They don't want my money? Okay. You win, SE. And you lose.

I just bought a used copy of Dragon Warrior VII for the PSOne. I get to play one of my favorite RPGs (fortunately, I still have my original PS2 and it works perfectly), and SE gets no money out of it. I paid $50 for it on Amazon and it works great.

So, all of you who want to play this classic, that option is open to you.

Hopefully, SE will pull its collective head out of its collective ass and realize just how easy it would be to make more money on this title. If they would just release it on the PSN at least, we could purchase it for the PS3, PSP, or PS Vita (I have all three). I would still pay the fee to have it on a portable system (the PSP or PS Vita).

Dragon Quest VIII is officially coming to the 3DS.

http://gematsu.com/2015/05/dragon-quest-viii-remake-coming-3ds
http://www.dragonquest.jp/dq8/


That makes...

- Rocket Slime 3,
- DQ Monsters: Terry's Wonderland 3D,
- DQ Monsters 2: Iru and Luca's Marvelous Mysterious Key,
- Dragon Quest VII 3D,
- Dragon Quest X,
- Theatrhythm Dragon Quest,
- And now Dragon Quest VII.

A whopping SEVEN Dragon Quest games for the 3DS that Square-Enix's USA branch has thus far failed to bring to its market. Fans have been crying out for these games to be localized for YEARS now (Rocket Slime 3 hit Japan in 2011, for crying out loud, and DQM:TW3D was just half a year after that!), but the incompetent half-wits in charge at Square-Enix USA have just twiddled their thumbs and said, "wwwweeeelll, Bravely Default DID perform abso-freakin'-lutely great, and everything with the name "Final Fantasy" on it sells like hotcakes... but we're STILL not sure if there's a big enough JRPG market for Dragon Quest."

I wish a different company made these games. A good one that actually spreads the love outside of glorified privileged Nippon.

You're forgetting Theatrhythm :c (and also forgetting Europe and Australia -_-) That makes 7 games, which, by the way, are all on 3DS.

But dont lose your hope so quickly. This year, when they announced DQH was coming worldwide (in english only, it seems) Yosuke Matsuda (SE's CEO) said in an interview that they acknowledged the demand of DQ over here and that they've thought of ideas to make DQ a successful franchise. He also asked fans to be looking forward "to upcoming announcements and to a “bright future” for the series.". Also, this year Square Enix is planning an E3 event, so its now or never. Summarizing: they have the ideal opportunity to announce the releases of DQ7 and if they don't fans will have lost all their faith in this company.

If anyone from SE is reading this: We won't be satisfied with only DQ Heroes on the E3. Only one spinoff in years won't do.

I didn't know DQH was being released overseas! That's great to hear, I thought the days of seeing new DQ titles overseas was over. I just heard about DQ VIII coming to 3DS. I can only hope that it will make it overseas too. I'm actually starting to study Japanese but to be honest I'm just not sure if I'll be able to learn Kanji which also plays a role in the dialog. Hiragana and Katakana are fairly easy to learn but after importing the DQ games that never made it over here I learned that I would also have to learn Kanji or try going through these games with a fair amount of reading only sentence fragments. I really hope to see a localized version of DQ VIII on 3DS, it's one of my favorite PS2 games. The fact that additional characters are being added makes it hard to get back into the original knowing that an updated version will exist.

It's only being localized because it's an action game. They think that's all westerners want, and is most likely what they plan to do to make it popular here (main series and all). It'll be their own fault when it flops.

The remarkable success of Bravely Default is nothing short of Western gamers walking-up to Square-Enix and forcibly stamping "WE LIKE TRADITIONAL JRPGS" on their collective forehead. It's incredibly obvious that current and future Dragon Quest games will perform admirably outside of ~*~ glorious privileged Japan~*~ if released and given a modicum of care and promotion. You know, like Dragon Quest IX already did thanks to Nintendo doing exactly that.

But apparently the people in charge of this company hate money.

Is there any word of Dragon Quest Terry's Wonderland coming to the US? I absolutely loved the original version (Dragon Warrior Monsters) and I was so excited when I heard of Terry's Wonderland coming out in Japan. I can't believe it's been 3 years since it actually came out. Is there any way to help show that we Americans, heck the entire rest of the world, deserve and want these games too? I want to play it so bad; to this day Dragon Warrior Monsters has been my favorite game and a smile was put on my face when I found out it was going to be remade for the 3DS...

Nope, because the suited nincompoops in charge at S-E USA don't place any value in their Dragon Quest fans, and are quick to localize other JRPGs but don't think we deserve anything but lazy spinoffs like Heroes.

Prove me wrong, Square-Enix.
