    Still no localization announcement……..

      Wonderflick, Dragon Quest X, Yakuza 1+2 HD, Taiko no Tatsujin, Gaiabreaker, Deadthmacht Love Comedy… C’mon, Nintendo, the list keep growing.

    • Attribule

      Don’t expect it to ever come to the west. Dragon Quest is incredibly niche in the west and sales have never been very high; do you think they would localize the most expensive Dragon Quest title despite that? MMOs are far more expensive than traditional titles as you have server costs, dedicated staffing, etc to maintain.

      The same goes for Monster Hunter Frontier/Online for those who keep complaining about that as well.

      These companies can’t just risk that kind of loss. If the core titles/merchandise pick up enough in sales these MMOs would be considered for localization more often, but until then forget it.

        ~~~Dragon Quest is incredibly niche in the west

        That is demonstrably false.

        Incredibly niche is doing good to push 25k~50k, like a game from CH. The last two numbered DQ games did quite well.

        With DQVIII selling a bare minimum of 400k in NA alone (in order to achieve greatest hits status); and DQIX selling 1.02M in NA and EU (according to this site and was also a chart topper on the NPD).

        Let me know when those kinds of #’s become “incredibly niche” then we can work on redefining the term.

    At this point in time, I’ve learnt to read the end of the title first so not to excite myself halfway through reading the whole title. *sighs* Anyways, wouldn’t this be called a Game of the Year edition on any other console?

    • Armane

      Game of the Year editions hinge on being awarded Game of the Year by a publication, and MMOs generally have a box set to bring new users up to speed irrespective of anything. It also originally launched on the Wii in 2012, so it couldn’t be Game of the Year this year either.

      So, no, it would not be called Game of the Year edition on anything ever.

    • Herok♞

      I don’t think so seeing as this is an MMO

  • CozyAndWarm

    Another Dragon Quest article where a western release isn’t mentioned. Whoop dee doo.

  • Slickyslacker

    I swear to you, I had a dream just recently in which a localization was announced.

    It ended with a Belial fiercely killing me.

  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    I am tired of this merry-go-round. IF we ever get the game in the west we will be so jaded from holding out breaths waiting for it that it won’t be any fun. Square Enix should just give us a definite NO-answer so we can move on to other things.

  • Kaihaku

    Ultima, Phantasy Star, and Dragon Quest have long been my favorite classic RPG series… I was nervous when Dragon Quest X went MMO but I was still going to give it a try, I haven’t missed an entry in the main series yet. Now it looks like it’s never going to come to North America. I’ve played fan translated entries in the series before but it’s something that I’m just not willing to do anymore, especially with an MMO – tried that with Phantasy Star Online 2 – if the company doesn’t want my money after I’ve consistently given it to them, well…it’s a sad day but my RPG library will go on.
