  1. Hey all, I've found some more magazine articles for SFC Dragon Quest VI  

    The earliest ones I've seen so far are from The Super Famicom No. 16  - September 16, 1994.



    More here https://archive.org/details/thesuperfamicom1995no.23/page/n71/mode/2up  issue No. 23 - December 22, 1995

    And, Superplay (UK)  issue 29 - March 1995

  2. Now that we have been given the sad and unfortunate (and perhaps, infuriating) news that 3DS DQXI will not be released outside of Japan, I guess the conversation now shifts to the possibilities for an English fan-translated patch.  -- As well as the right 3DS emulation to be able to play it (3DS emulation exists but I haven't really looked into that yet).

    While I am more than a little bummed about Square Enix closing the door on 3DS DQXI coming to the west, the writing is on the wall and there's probably little point in trying to ask them to do otherwise.

    I imagine its now upto the community and fans to make it possible to play 2D/3D Dragon Quest XI 3DS in English.

    What do you all think - Please use this as a springboard for discussion.




  3. While I'm glad to see English gameplay of  PS4 DQXI, I'm very upset that they won't be releasing the 3DS version in the west.

    I'm assuming the yet-to-be-seen Switch version of DQXI will be based on the PS4 version with paired down graphics & resolution.

    If that's the case, I will only be interested in DQXI on PS4.

    Damn'it, SquareEnix, give us the 3DS DQXI as well. Nintendo has seen fit to keep 3DS going through 2018 and into 2019.

    Will Operation Rainfall help us?



  4. Volume 2 Issue 10 (the first pic)







    Volume 4 Issue 2


    I'm kinda miffed that I can't find their review (if they actually indeed did one) in any of the Volume 4 (1996) issues.

    It seems just about every issue of GameFan has been uploaded to archive.org     


    Is anyone willing to help me look through these magazines?  Thanks!

  7. At the “Dragon Quest The Real opening event at Universal Studios Japan, Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii teased a Dragon Quest XI-related announcement coming soon.

    “All of the staff are currently working really hard making the game,†Horii said regarding Dragon Quest XI. “I think that we’ll be able to make an announcement of some sort soon, so please look forward to it.â€
    Horii has previously said he wants to release Dragon Quest XI before the series’ 30th anniversary year ends on May 27, 2017. The window for that potential release is closing, and it’s possible this “some sort of announcement†is the release date
