    One part that you omitted from the DQ11 info, that I find very releaving is: "and that it will be a return to the traditional mechanics of Dragon Quest."

    This is great to hear. Honestly, because it's being made for consoles, and because of how rampantly everything seems to be going action, I was really afraid that DQ11 would be an ARPG.

    Uhm that is posted on Dragon Quest's official site since it was opened after the reveal of the limited editions, scroll until you find the Specs if you don't believe me.

    I believe you, slime_fan. I'm merely redirecting "news" from the news channels in this particular case.

    Oh look at that, Dragon Quest Monsters Joker is happening for 3DS.

    Which means you guys are about to have ANOTHER Dragon Quest game for 3DS to localize. How many is that on JUST that system now, seven games? Eight if you count the DQX port?

    The drooling and incompetent powers-that-be at Square-Enix need to cut the bologna and just get these titles localized already. There is CLEARLY a demand. This "well maybe if you buy this very different spin-off game that's not even an RPG and is only for one brand-new system" crap with Heroes is stupid and pointless. Heroes is NOT one of the many games we've spent the last FOUR YEARS begging for.

    When is Square-Enix going to shape up and realize there's a market for these games? There's a huge backlog of DQ games that haven't left glorious privileged Nippon. Some of them have even gotten "greatest hits" style REPRINTS over there, but the bumbling wishy-washy simpletons in charge have yet to give them a first release anywhere else.

    No more excuses and vagueness. We WANT them. If you release them, we WILL buy them. Just DO IT.

    @KaboomKrusader They used a spinoff selling badly to stop bringing them over here. It makes sense that they use a spinoff to start bringing them here again. In most gaming companies it wouldn't make sense at all, but this one is uhm different.
    I feel excited about DQMJ3 happening even not being a big fan of the two DQMJ games, and i also feel sad because i know we won't get it. We aren't getting the best game (imo) on 3DS ( which is DQM2), we won't get DQMJ3 either.

    That trailer is region locked... Anyway, totally loving the clothes options and Red's cannon attack haha

    That pretty much sums up the state of Dragon Quest "news" for us right now.

    "You aren't even allowed to watch the trailers for these new 3DS games because the nimrods running this company don't even want to admit in your region that those games exist."

    That interview didn't say jack squat about all the games before Heroes that we actually WANT localized. When are the people in charge going to wise up?

    > Bravely Default selling well makes Square Enix's president realize there's a market for JRPGs
    >Yuu Miyake: "Because this is the first action game in the series"
    Thats not what we asked for. No Dragon Quest fan wants an action game before a JRPG. Its cool that we are getting it (any Dragon Quest is welcome. Always), and we thank you for your efforts bringing it, but this is not what we asked for. We asked, and still ask, for the 3DS games we missed since 2011.
