Dragon Quest fans are now able to play Dragon Quest VII thanks to a huge outpouring of support for the game’s localization. But what about other Dragon Quest games that have yet to see any mention of releasing outside of Japan?
During a Dragon Quest VII panel at this year’s PAX West, Square Enix’s Noriyoshi Fujimoto was on hand to answer questions from fans in attendance. One asked if Dragon Quest X would ever see a release in the west. Fujimoto answered by saying that translating a game as big as an MMO is a daunting task, as well as being fairly difficult from a business standpoint. Nonetheless, he didn’t completely shut down the possibility, suggesting that if Dragon Quest X got as much fan support for a localization as VII did, then perhaps Square Enix would consider it.
Dragon Quest X is currently available in Japan for the Wii, Wii U, PC, Android, iOS, and Nintendo 3DS. A version is also in production for the upcoming NX.
