No mention of DQ at all this E3. Nothing from Square Enix - no surprise there - but also nothing from Nintendo.

Welcome to the second dark age of DQ in the west.

In that case, I'll save money now, because I won't be buying a WiiU or 3DS, nor will I purchase any SE products.

I can't decide what is a worse time to be a Dragon Quest fan.  The period from 1992 until 1999, or currently.

Now, now! Don't get all hopeless! Nintendurr might surprise us at the end of the conference! It might be that they're translating them, but will simply decide not to show them until the end!

...Well, unless I missed something, and I was too optimistic about it.

I'll see if I can get some sort of quote from anybody. If nothing's going on and people want to do fan translations, I'm here if folks need me, but keep in mind I'm all old 'n 35 and building a business, so I can only do what I can, when I can.

 

That being said, I sincerely hope whoever at Nintendo that decided to cheap out and use uStream got fired. What a complete $#!& up. Lag every five seconds no matter the quality. It up and quits on their big announcement. I've streamed every year since 2006 and there was never a problem until now. uSteam is a shitty memory hog to begin with. No excuse for that.

Not yet.

But I'm holding out on TW3D on this year's straight list.

How would we go about fan translating Dragon Quest X, anyway?  As far as I know, that's pretty much impossible with it being an MMO and all

Maybe not X, but I'd love to do a nice version of VII for everybody. Olde English Melvin and all.

Too bad... If only there were no #$%& region locks...

Now that I am finally coming out of my no-money-for-games years there are no more DQ games to buy...

I will be getting a 3DS someday (I hope). Already bought Dream Drop Distance and Devil Survivor Overclocked, so I started building my library even now.

But I would have really loved Dragon Quest VII, then Terry and yes, I would love to play Slime Morimori 3, as well.

Shortly after the conference Nintendo releases a master list of all their titles for the coming year. Only the heavy hitters like Women's Murder Club make the conference.

I can understand now! The DQ titles aren't exactly heavy-hitters! So that's why they weren't in the Nintendo Direct or the conference!

When do they usually put out the master list?  Have your contacts said anything, bossman?

I think it was at the end of the E3 conference last year. Where they had put game related materials like images.
