Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie Playable At TGS

We haven’t heard much about Dragon Quest VI, but that’s going to change real soon. Square Enix will have a playable build of Realms of Reverie inside their Tokyo Game Show booth. The game will be shown to the public for the first time next week.


Unlike the other two titles in the Zenithia Trilogy, this will be the first Dragon Quest VI remake. Enix remade Dragon Quest IV for the PsOne and Matrix Software, the team behind the Final Fantasy III and IV remakes for the DS, made a PS2 version of Dragon Quest V. Looking forward to seeing how Square Enix changed and upgraded DQ VI for the DS.

    It can’t come soon enough (and won’t by far, considering that Square-Enix is probably going to majorly drag their feet with the localization of this one considering DQIV and V’s failure.)

      I feel a little guilty because I have yet to pick up DQ V (I do have IV though). I will be very sad if VI is passed over because of sales.

        Well, if there’s any little hope, it’s in the fact that Square-Enix had a somewhat limited production run with DQV, which indicates that they’re still willing to localize something with pretty small sales potential. They could have easily given up after DQIV, but they decided to simply lower production to meet demand.

        (And never allowed a price drop, either, though whether this allowed them to better recoup localization costs or, as usual, kept the sizable portion of their base that won’t pay their tax from buying the game is debatable. Either way, it was the first DS game I paid their tax on as it has largely disappeared from retailers and I didn’t want to get gouged on ebay.)

          I know what you mean, I haven’t seen it around much, which is why I’m planning on picking it up soon. It’s just really hard to keep up with all the releases that I think deserve my money.
