Welcome my friend, we've been expecting you.

It's sad because most of these games are a cut above the rest on the 3DS. It's like if Nintendo doesn't step in and publish on their platforms, Square isn't interested. Yet they'd be glad to localize and publish on PS. 

Slime Mori Mori 3 and Theatrhythm don’t have much to translate either so that makes it even worse.

People ask me why 3rd parties don't sell on Nintendo platforms, I dunno what to tell them.

Oh well... Day 1 on PC it is.

Rocket Slime 3... yeah they shoulda translated that and released in the west.
Same with the Monsters 2.

DQ Theatrhythm = meh its a rythem game.

Dragon Quest Monsters 2 doesn't either, although I think a fan translation will come sooner or later.  Still the best DQ Monsters game imo. I really want to play Slime Mori Mori 3 looks interesting as well, loved Rocket Slime.

I will not buy a Square Enix game for the rest of 2018 (including stuff like Octopath Traveller if they helped develop it).

Please don't open old wounds like that.

I'd forgotten that classy Metal Slime 2DS, thanks for that, I hate you.



I'll likely check it out on PS4 if Switch version is going to be that much later.



Kinda disappointed we have to wait more for the Switch version, it was the first game to be announced for the platform back in 2016

I can't believe they are abandoning the 3DS version, it's the same fucking game, already translated, it's just free money.


And we miss on ANOTHER 3DS Dragon Quest game, must be like the 6th now.


No Switch version yet makes sense, it hasn't even come out on Japan guys.

And the 3DS is region-locked so I can't even just import it and play it that way.
