Dragon Quest IX  | oprainfall

I love the Dragon Quest series, if that hasn’t been made clear by the articles I’ve written. I mean, come on, it’s the definition of the JRPG. That said, we haven’t heard a peep about a Western release since Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 came out in 2011, even though two Japanese remakes came out in the meantime, with a third on the way, not to mention the seemingly ill-fated MMO, Dragon Quest X.

Reggie Fils-Aime | Dragon Quest

Nintendo of America has been handling localization of recent Dragon Quest titles (such as the excellent Dragon Quest IX), so I nearly jumped for joy when I saw this tweet from the Regginator:

Could this be a sign that NoA (or, perhaps, Nintendo of Europe, given their recent willingness to try risky localization) are going to bring the 3DS games to Western shores? Or, perhaps, they are looking to gauge interest in the series. Well, whatever the reasoning, I’m glad someone at NoA still loves Dragon Quest.

About Guy Rainey

I’m Guy Rainey. I’m a hardcore Nintendo fan, a PC enthusiast, and a Sony sympathizer. Also an amateur/aspiring game creator. I love any game that puts story as the main focus of the game, so that means JRPGs are my favorite genre almost by default.
