This Week In Imports: Can A Video Game Guild Beat Dragon Quest?

By Spencer . May 28, 2012 . 4:00pm

imageOK, so a 3DS compilation with games from Yoot Saito, Suda51, and Vagrant Story creator Yasumi Matsuno probably won’t top a Dragon Quest port on the sales chart. I’m still curious to see where Guild 01 from Level-5 lands since their four games by four creators on one cart concept is kind of interesting. Oh, and they already have a sequel lined up with Dead Rising creator Keiji Inafune as one of the designers.


PSP will get two games from Arc System Works, a port of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend with a brand new quiz mode, but no online play and a game based on the anime series Phi Brain.

    lol, I thought that said “unENDing Booty Call”.
    …this heatwave is getting to me.

  • Short answer: no. SE games are huge especially compared to that random grab bag. Which I am not interested in seeing at all and wonder why a sequel is planned. Do people actually want it/like it? O_o Hopefully DQM:TW comes over.

    • boundries_san

      Because it is a new concept lol and i want/like it too.^^

      • Well ok I didn’t think people actually liked it! No offense to you or others who do. But my statement of DQM easily beating out Guild 01 stands.

        • boundries_san

          Thats for sure lol as DQ is so famous there in Japan but at least, many love Guild 01 game here as it gives the game developper the freedom to come out with some game that many of us see that it is fun and interesting.

    The software sales chart this week is going to be a laugh.

    As for our releases, Blazing Souls basically came out of nowhere. I don’t even remember an announcement for that one, but thanks Rising Star? Might pick it up way down the line, there’s other releases in the coming weeks I’m more interested in.

      What is even more surprising is the 2-year gap between the NA and the EU release. Which would be quite strange if the game doesn’t have a multi-language script.
      Well, at least the game’s here.

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Phi Brain if I was in JPN. Jikukawa x Apple Juice please.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Ah! Just reminded me that I need to get back to Vagrant Story.

    On topic, I expect DQ to take the top easily. With the creators tied to Guild 01 and Level-5 though… well, I don’t expect the margin to be as wide as it would’ve been with DQ against another game.

    And Burning Skies? Hm… it looked good enough when they showed footage of it, but I don’t really have any interest in the Resistance series. Pass, I suppose.

  • DQ will easily beat the competition to a pulp I’m guessing. The question is…how much will it actually sell? And will it actually keep charting in the forthcoming weeks? Knowing it’s a remake of a rather old game….I wouldn’t doubt this for a second, if this was a main series game, but I’m definitely wondering how will this game fare, taking these details into consideration.

    • Maybe due to the fact that it is so old that it will be able to sell better? I dunno. I just hope it does well enough to get localized.

    • boundries_san

      Hmm…. i would bet that they would at least sold more than 200k piece lol considering it is DQ even though they are remake considering this remake is from quite an old series that maybe more youngsters and of course oldies would wanted to play.

  • Herok ♞

    If I knew more JP I would buy phi-brain instantly 

  • CrimsonalCore

    I hope they localizing them both… Sometimes us gamers are desperate for more good games, I know we have SSFIV3D, Mario 3D Land, Zelda OoT3D, MK7, KIU, and coming soon to KH3D, RoH, etc. But we’re hungry for more of those games, so please feed us more. :3

    • boundries_san

      NP lol. E3 is going to shove us most of those game lol.

      KHDDD is granted coming here followed with Thearhtyhm. We only need conformation on FE,EXTrooper,RF4, and of course both this game.^^

  • Kevadu

    Wow, nothing is going to stop that PSP…
