Dragon Quest IV is coming to America Next

Recommended Posts

I'll probably get this, but I'm kinda happy with my IV,V, and VI that I have on DS.  Not to mention that I very recently played through IV again.  I, II, and III mobile would be an instant buy for me, though.

This is cool and all but why can't they release DQ I for smartphones? Most modern Dragon Quest fans have played IV while few new ones have gotten a chance to play DQ I.

Bring what we have already and never release X in the US. Great marketing Square-Enix!!! Just like the 2 Monster games for 3ds. Got the original copys of 1&2 but you won't release the 3D versions. What a slap in the face for real fans.

Maybe we'll finally get the party chat that was bizarrely left out last time. Also, it would be nice if they toned down the brutal difficulty of the casino from the DS version, but that's probably wishful thinking.

Totally agree. Awesome as it was to play these on the go a dozen years ago, we really need an update from the limited GBC graphics and text.

Do you try to be an ass or does it come naturally to you?

It comes naturally. Sorry to Mega, but if he did a check for new content, he would've seen that Dwaine beat him to it. :P Double-threads are redundant.

It might not be a double thread. Maybe Megalosaro made the thread to talk about how IV was the "next" game to be localized. Maybe he was aware that Dwaine started the thread on IV's localization and he wanted to discuss that this was the "next" game in Square Enix's recent mobile porting.

Or maybe he thought that the *mobile releases* section would be a better place for such a topic. Granted, on most forums it would be pretty ballsy to defy a mod's decision, but technically there's no rule breaking on either part. And I think Dwaine would probably just get a kick out of it if he had any feelings about it whatsoever. I don't think he'd pull out the ban hammer or even a warnings for a simple dupe topic or disagreement... Unlike the mods at CERTAIN game series' forums... *COUGH*finalfantasy*COUGH*

 

Now that I've said that he probably wouldn't have a problem, Dwaine may act all butthurt over it just for kicks and giggles. I can picture it now... A GIF of Ron Swanson looking pissed off along with the caption. "NO. THREAD LOCKED. END OF DISCUSSION." Or something like that. (It would be funnier coming from Dwaine himself.)

Well, whenever new Dragon Quest news, a million topics crop up and he usually just locks them. I don't think he's ever even banned anyone.

If anything, Dwaine posted in the wrong spot since this is the mobile section.

If we want to get technical, my guess is most "modern Dragon Quest fans" would probably find DQI lacking. A lot. I'm not really looking forward to it. Actually I still have the Japanese DQI on my phone & I didn't bother to go to far. Slow gameplay. There's better choices out there. They're going for what works currently. Not that a big part of me doesn't agree with you, but hey, we're talking about Squeenix!

I agree. DQI hasn't aged well. It's too simple and is just a grindfest. I still love it though. What they should do is remake it as an action RPG. I think it would work well since you only have one character to control.

Maybe a 3ds/wiiu/mobile remake that upgrades (Helmets, quicker gameplay, scaled up world) the whole game and uses the DQX engine would do. But that would change the game a little to much

More like 1-3 are the only ones without a modern translation so they'd be the most work. I don't think they're necessarily skipping them, just that they're going to be last for that reason,

7 hasnt a modern translation either.

 

I think they might be delaying 1 because they might actually be translating it again, but who knows
