While Square Enix has been steadily releasing Dragon Quest games in Japan, the publisher hasn’t said anything about bringing games like Dragon Quest X to the West. Two trademarks hint that Square Enix or perhaps Nintendo will release more localized Dragon Quest games.
Siliconera dug up trademarks for Luminaries of the Legendary Line and The Seeds of Salvation registered in Japan by Square Enix. These trademarks are in English, which suggest they will be used for a Western release.
Why do we think these are for Dragon Quest? Well, Luminaries of the Legendary Line and The Seeds of Salvation use the same alliteration modern Dragon Quest games use. Take Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen as an example and note the word flow for the subtitle Chapters of the Chosen. All of the other recent Dragon Quest games have the same flow – Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride, Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation, and Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies. Also, all of the recent Dragon Quest games were revealed through trademarks first – including confirmation for Dragon Quest VI after we didn’t hear anything about that game.
The question is what games will Luminaries of the Legendary Line and The Seeds of Salvation be used for? Dragon Quest X? Dragon Quest VII’s Nintendo 3DS remake? Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry’s Wonderland 3D?
