Localization News: DQXI


Recommended Posts

While I'm totally excited the game is confirmed for September, it's ridiculous we aren't getting the 3DS version. Here's hoping Nintendo will approach SE and will handle the 3DS version's publishing.

If not, thank god I have a Japanese 3DS! Time to import that version.

Our product manager played the game all the way through, barely touching sidequests, and his file is 95 hours. Mine is close to 200, but I also know I left it running a lot, so I'd estimate somewhere

I don't think the problem is SE doesn't care.  That was technically a problem post-DQMJ, the last game while Wada was president, that SE directly promoted, and asked the help of journalists for some d

Man...who knew the can of worms I would open by talking about and posting this article. The preview was in the previews section, a few pages in. I'd call it the rough middle of the magazine.

Considering Square Enix mentioned the Nintendo Switch version, but not the Nintendo 3DS version, I think it's safe to assume it's not coming. I would like another "It's not coming!" stamp.

 

(I hope I'm wrong.)

This was fantastic new to awaken to. My vision was semi blurry and I was half asleep. Immediately woke up fully haha. Just five more months. Probably something at E3 and then we just wait. I’m so excited.

Nintendo has handled most of the handheld releases. Might as well let them handle DQ11's 3DS version as well.

You think Nintendo would handle the 3DS if it’s not exclusive (especially if it’s coming out months after the PS4/PC release)?   What would be the point?   You’d be advertising a game on competing platforms months after it was originally released.  I can’t imagine a months late to the party 3DS version would even sell, judging by DQ 7 and 8’s numbers.  

I think hoping the Switch release has the 3DS modes as extras/features is our best bet.  It would be an advantage of the Switch version since the Switch version is most likely going to have a visual downgrade compared to the PS4 version.  I mean how awesome would it be to have all three modes (DQ 6 style, DQ 8 style, and DQ 9 style) all on the Switch version?   It would have the advantage of being portable too!

Just happened across this news on IGN. I'm a little sad about the 3DS version not coming here, but I'm not surprised, and the PS4 version is the one I wanted more anyway.

Not surprised. The 3DS isn’t dead, but it’s extra work and it would cut into Square Enix’s profits if Nintendo published it, as it would reduce the number of potential buyers for versions that Square Enid publishes, had they decided to split publishing duties, of course, which they wouldn’t. It makes total sense.

I’m going to keep thinking optimistically and stubbornly. I’ll hold out hope for the official western release of the 3DS version, and no one will change that until I give up hope on it like I did with Dragon Quest 7’s 3DS release. Of course, that one saw the light at the end of the tunnel 3 and half years later, and while the same may not happen with DQ11’s 3DS version, I’ll be holding out hope for it no matter what anyone else thinks.

That’s just how I am. One stubborn, optimistic bandit.

Hey after the Dragoon Quest 7 3DS fiasco I learned anything could happen lol. 

I am just super happy it’s finally coming at all.  I have waited 13 years to have another experience like Dragon Quest 8 was on the PS2 and it’s finally happening.  Been far too long to see DQ on a nice big TV with surround sound and gorgeous graphics and voice acting to boot!

It is going to be glorious...

Man, voice acting, huh. I was hoping for it, but I was definately not expecting it. Would have prefered orchestrated music over voice acting, but I am not going to complain about this. This is great.

As for the 3DS version, I don't want it as much as the console version. But I hope we get it. I know some of you really wanted that version.

While I am happy it's getting localized at all...

God ****ing **** it, SE. Business and all, I get it. But this is the one I would have liked to see the most in English.

At least the localization adds some improvements. Hard mode was definitely needed.

I had an inkling of the 3DS version being passed on in the West. I can't think of too many games that had entirely different builds on different consoles. Square Enix probably didn't want to take sales away from the PS4 version since they seem to be using that as their push to get Dragon Quest into the Western market. Shame too because the 3ds version has a few interesting exclusive features people would've loved.

If its not too mush to ask, could somebody make a comparison of the JP menus vs the localized menus? 

Boom.

Here's a trailer with English gameplay. It features some of the voice acting as well.

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?

According to US Gamer, zone system called Pep Points.

And they say the Draconian Quest stuff is just the restricted play options like restricting equipment purchases, and the Shypox curse.

But the SE press release lists Draconian stuff as new for the west alongside the redone UI, voice acting and dash, when it was sure as hell in the JP release, so I'm wondering if the article writer is confused.

I've been busy losing my #$*! over the fact I had a dream last night about missing some localization news and lo behold, we get some news!

While I am sad about the 3DS version, it is what it is. Now a Steam version? I never dreamed of that! I'm holding out to see if we will get any fancy collector's edition first, then deciding which version I'll get.

I know there's a lot that can be nagged about but considering how we have Michi as our SE representative, voice acting for those picky folks, and a PC version, I feel on top of the world.

Greig's name changed to Hendrik.

Hero/Yuusha translated as Luminary(which is kind of weird since that was the translation used for the superstar/teen idol class in earlier games lol)

Delcadar is Carnelia.

Camus is Erik

 

I wonder if there are any names NOT changed, heh.

There is a story/translation reason for calling him the Luminary! You'll see when you get it all in context, I think.

Veronica is the same, as seen in the comparison screenshot. ;)

Delcadar is actually Heliodor - the king of Heliodor is King Carnelian. :)

It's been so hard not to say anything and I'm so glad these posts all finally went up. Lots of fun things planned. I'll do my best for my beloved DQ. <3

Collector’s Edition? Where’s that “shut up and take my money” meme when you need it?

Oh, here it is:

And I’m out of the loop since I’m not on social media so maybe that’s where I missed it, but where was it mentioned Michi was the DQ community manager? That’s so awesome!
