Might as well be a Switch exclusive



I really hope this does well. It'd be terrible for Japanese third party Switch support if it didn't, they're already doing a crappy job of supporting the system and if a franchise as big as Dragon Quest sells poorly so many could look at that and say "hey if DQ can't sell, why even bother?"

Never mind that it's 2 years late an already sold millions on 3DS/PS4, it'll still be held up as a sign that third parties shouldn't make Switch games.

Except the majority of Japanese consumers will own a Switch which makes it impossible for DQ games to skip the system considering that's where 90% of sales are it's the same reason that 3DS got a version of DQXI despite the developer wanting to do a console game as the userbase was too big to ignore DQ always lands on the most successful platform in Japan that's something Horii has in place and can't be challenged.

I didn't mean the next DQ, more third parties in general; Switch's excellent sales so far haven't stopped a lot of Japanese devs giving mediocre to poor support.

Mostly Capcom and Falcom. Others have been normal to great. SE especially.




With the Fall rush, I don't think I'll be able to touch this epic before next year. I mean, it'll make for a really nice JRPG to begin the next year but I can simply afford myself to multitask 5 games at the same time.

Truly the best place for the JRPG GAMER. Also known as "paradise".
