any brand new DQ games coming our way?

Recommended Posts

 

 

 It has been some time, since Dragon Quest 9 was considered to be the brand newest game in the DQ series. Has Square-Enix made any new game for the 3DS since then? Or for any game console, that is ready to play now?

I know, rite?

 

It almost feels like an exec of SEoJ made this thread to taunt us.

DQ7 mobile as the PSX? Really?

Yeah I don't get it either.

 

If mobile phones can handle games like Dragon Quest 8 and Bioshock than the 3DS version of DQ 7 should be no problem lol. DQ 7 3DS wasn't exactly a looker when it was new...

The mobile market is very unstable. It's not only crowded, but many mobile games have low player retention rates and mobile gaming is enjoyed by an audience that has lower consumer loyalty and quickly moves onto the next big thing. That is what's killing companies like Zynga and Rovio, and it's also what greatly damaged Nintendo transition from the Wii to the Wii U.

First of all, Dragon Quest VII 3DS is amazing. Don't anybody dis it. There are only three problems with the game (so far, at least - I haven't finished this version yet), and one of them some people consider an improvement (though I don't agree):

1) Opening content was cut. A LOT. All the puzzles were removed from the first 1-2 hours of the game. While I understand why some people don't enjoy waiting an hour or more to get into their first battle, the removal of most of the Forbidden Ruins content takes out much of the mystery and suspense that was in the original release.

2) Due to the cut content, the original opening was changed, and the most beautiful music track in the game (in my opinion), Morning In Eden, goes unused in this version. At least it does exist in the game's files and has been ripped along with the rest of the music.

3) For some reason, half of Singing Stadium, another of my favorite tracks, was cut. This appears to have to do with the track being orchestrated. The original Symphonic Suite (that went along with the PSX version) had several of the "town" tracks re-written into one piece, and in order to make it flow, the second half of Singing Stadium wasn't included. However, although the 3DS soundtrack was performed/recorded by a live orchestra, it was a different recording than the old Symphonic Suite. So I don't see why they didn't include the second half. (The town track from the original Symphonic Suite had to be split into separate tracks again anyways...)

 

Now, as for the mobile port: I believe it'll most likely be based on the 3DS version of the game. SE has been using the most recent version of each game as the basis for the mobile port. However, DQ7-PSX's engine was incredibly similar to the engine used for IV-VI DS/Mobile. While I doubt it, I wouldn't put it past SE to port the PSX version so they can reuse the engine they already have. (Although VIII's mobile engine isn't actually all that different from VII 3DS... Only difference is the visual scale and the more restrictive camera movement in VII. Oh, and the battle system is slightly different.)

What I would like to see (although incredibly unlikely) is the PSX version's content (plus any extras added to the 3DS version) in the the 3DS version's engine. That means the Ruins puzzles would make a return, as well as (a remastered version of) the original opening sequence. Also, the option to have random encounters or visible encounters (like they're doing with DQXI on 3DS.) AND THE CASINO: I haven't reached a casino in the 3DS version yet, but I'd like slots to work like they did in the SNES version of DQ6 and the PSX version of DQ7. I'd also like to see the return of the DQ7PSX version of Poker Double-or-Nothing (where you can guess high/low instead of just hoping the next card is higher).

The 3ds version uses the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphonis suite from 2006. It's just copy pasted into the game like how the U.S. Version of 8 got the symphonic soundtrack. Yeah it's sucks it's not the full version of singing stadium, but considering the 3ds version wasn't even going to have symphonic music in the first place, it's a fair trade off. Plus the Toyko Metropolitan version of 7 soundtracks is far superior to the original symphonic recording IMO.

 When I asked this question, I was hoping to learn and hear if Square-Enix has made any new Dragon Quest games for the 3DS and/or PlayStation 4, or has any future plans to.

 

 

 And Dwainie, why did you troll my question with that embedded video clip? That wasn't nice or respectful.

It was supposed to represent his reaction. There have been quite a few new DQ games, both main-title remakes and spin-off games that have come out over the past few years that haven't left Japan. It's a sad joke in the DQ community, now, that the West doesn't get anything DQ anymore, unless it doesn't require a translation (i.e. mobile ports).

 

In fact, due to the nature of the franchise and its community right now, no doubt there are a couple here who thought you were trolling by asking if there were any new games.

I can answer that for Dwaine.

 

It seemed like a troll that you even asked us that.

 

We may have gotten spinoffs and ports, but the ports are important, they are bringing in a new generation of fans that never played DQ in the first place (( and in the case of 4-6, wouldn't bother with a "kiddie game system" for them )).

Very much so. I thought this was a joke topic myself. I mean, it's an easy enough question to Google, so I figured this was just a joke.

 

And if you're offended by a gif of someone confused, we're probably going to piss you off a lot. We actually joke around here. A lot. A whole lot. I can't really recall the last time a regular really got mad at anyone (well, Mortafurck), we're just completely joking with 90% of our replies. And that goes to 99% when a graphic is involved.

Since we're on the topic, I think it's responsible of me to alert everyone that I tend to take things hyper-literally. It hasn't been a problem here yet, but I have problems with social interaction and I've been told on an occasion or two in my life that I've reacted negatively to something that was a joke.

 

So bear with me if I ever misinterpret anything. I tend to self-police my enough, though. Don't worry about offending me either. You should have the freedom to speak your mind here. Too many internet communities have gone the route of super-pc policies.

I tend to do that more often online than in real life, but I've been known to do this on occasion in my personal life.  Though the problem for me is, I've been right on the money usually, but it's just that I jump the gun and assume I am the responsible party for the annoyance, anger, frustration...etc.  I just tend to pick up on stuff like that IRL.  Online it's another matter entirely.

 

I used to think people dislike me or hate me, and it's something I've had to work around.  It's all a learning process.  Clearly the only way to fix a problem is to first recognize there even is one...though of course the danger is assuming a problem exists when one doesn't, but I digress. 

 

You're cool AustNerevar.  I should warn you that my humour is pretty dry, and unless I make it obvious, it's hard to read online and I find it usually comes off sounding like passive aggression...so I typically delete it when that happens.  IRL I'm pretty funny, but usually due to accidental and unintentional humour, like completely jumbled words at the perfect time that fit into some ridiculous context...somehow ending in humour.  I usually find it's best to laugh at yourself, as I kind of half to.  I mean, I really screw up a lot...or say incredibly foolish things more often than I care to admit to.

 

Well anyway, if anything does happen, I'll let you know to your face...err, well, online as direct as I possibly can be.  Feel free to challenge if I take you too seriously, or misread/misinterpret.  That said, a late apology for our last discussion, I didn't really read your post just prior to my own, and never accounted for it.  That said, it felt like the conversation was over and there wasn't anything more to say.

I'll just rip your shirt off and turn it into a flag.

 

:)

 

I hate being PC, and I don't sugarcoat. I'll say what I want, when I want, how I want, and who I want it to.

 

 

'murica!
