I think this game will come to the west in early 2019.

Recommended Posts

I can't think of a reason for this game to not make it overseas at all, specially having Final Fantasy.

Dragon Quest XI has done well in the west and the past title's sales "Fortune Street Wii" were higher in the west, so i can't think of a reason why this game isn't coming.

I just think it took this long because game has a considerable amount of text and they waited to see how well DQXI did in the west.

Yeah, I've had the same thought as well. It could be because of the DQX content as well. I just hope from all this wait they might throw a PC/Switch port in while they’re at it.

I half think that's why Joker 3 didn't come over - half those monsters are DQX ones.

Much to my frustration. I mean that's a pretty lame reason. Especially if Fortune Street did so well here

What does DQX content has to do with it coming in the west or not? it has just 2 characters and 1 stage from DQX iirc.

They might find it awkward to go through the trouble of "localizing" the DQX stuff when it's not even available here (you have to think there's the characters, the way they talk, the location the stage is based off of AND there are Venture Cards with X references as well). I think that's a big reason why the PS2 game never came out because they would have to "localize" all the DQI-VII stuff when such material wasn't readily available (it was BEFORE the DS remakes)

 

And before you mention Young Yangus in FS Wii, I think that was something they could let slide since Yangus is a character already established in English even if his spinoff game isn't.

 

I sure hope XI does well enough they consider the "offline" version of X and then THAT might persuade them to release the new Fortune Street.

I think that logic is flawed, Dragon Quest Heroes has monsters and items from X and it got localized.

I'd agree for the PS2/PSP since only VIII was localized at the time, but i don't think with just one game is an issue at all.

 

I also don't think that a western version of X will persuade them to release a new Fortune Street, actually there might be a new one for the switch in 2019 or 2020 with the Mario cast, since this one was PS4/Vita. 

Peraphs they could include some stuff from Builders, Heroes and Monsters into the game, probably not characters just boards.

I've considered this a possibility as well. With the recent Wii/GC ports announced by S-E, a port/remake/remaster of FS Wii in the same vein as the Vita/PS4 game makes a lot of sense. It could really go either way I think.

A new game seems more likely than a port of the wii one.

Well I mean, the PS4/Vita game is kind of a souped up remix of the PS2/Vita versions with a lot of recycled content, but it’s not just a simple port either. I think a Switch version could do something similar. Shuffle in some new characters and maps based on newer games. Use the DS casino games. They could even do the voice acting just keep the characters to quick grunts and short phrases. Could be cool.

The PS4/Vita game is a 30th anniversary title, of couse it's going to have recycled content lol, it's not a remix of the PS2/PSP version at all, there's a lot of new stuff.

The switch game if it happens it's probably going to have little to do with the Wii version, besides maybe having Mario characters.
