Just report the OP if this is a dupe, haven't seen it posted anywhere.

Thoughts? Still no news on a localisation, sadly. Between this staying in Japan for the time being and still no news on PSO2's localisation, it's quite a disappointing time.

Given that FF XIV is PS3/4/PC and even PSO2 is Vita/PC, it makes sense that Dragon Quest has made the leap across. PC is just where the market (mostly) is, and it seems silly to ignore it.

Still, I am quite surprised to see this announced so soon.

Shots fired.

Anyways, knew this would happen, it is the most logical step/decision for any MMO type of game.

Although the chances of it being localized are even lower since Jap devs tend to not release as much in the west on PC let alone consoles (which they do far more than on PC).

Unless it is named Final Fantasy, I doubt this will come out in NA/EU anytime soon.

Also reported for being a nab.

Edit: I am pretty sure SE did this because they knew subs on the Wii and WiiU versions werent going up but down and PC is where it will be stabilized cause the MMO community is on PCs obviously.



hope it lands on the PS4

Huh, that's a weird choice!

Then again, the PC as a gaming platform is in a weird place today. I think I actually like this bit of news.

End of 2014 hardware sales:

Wii U: 10 million. PS4: 15.5 million. One: 11 million. 3DS: 53 million. PSVita: 9.6 million.

Man, I was hoping for localization but I guess that's even less of a chance now. Maybe, just maybe the PC version will come, or Nintendo will pay for translation and NA/EU servers or something (... yeah I know)

Well I'll just have to wait for Dragon Quest VII 3DS localization then Dragon Quest XI (which hopefully will be a full game and on 3DS like IX was on DS - but better I hope)

Systems Currently Playing: WiiU, PS3, 3DS

Also Have: Atari 2600, NES, SNES, PS1, N64, PS2, Wii, GB, GBC, GBA, DSLite, DSi, Android (RazorMax), iPhone (4), iPad (2)

Oh. But this is Square-Enix. Yeah, that is weird.



1. DQX never should have been a MMO game.

2. Given that it is, they're NEVER going to make money on it by having it be Japan only. Japan is not a good market for online gaming in general. If they want it to make money, they MIGHT want to get a localized version for Wii U in NA and EU. Just a thought.

As an MMO this is where it should have been in the first place.

If it were single player the Wii/WiiU decision would make some sense. Console exclusive MMOs only end up in one place.
