Operation Hero is campaigning to get Dragon Quest 7 for Nintendo 3DS and Dragon Quest 10 for Wii U or 3DS localized in North America and Europe. (We added 3DS to Dragon Quest 10 after the recent announcement (http://www NULL.eurogamer NULL.net/articles/2014-07-08-dragon-quest-10-announced-for-3ds-in-japan) of the 3DS release in Japan.)
Once Dragon Quest 10 was released in Japan on August 2nd, 2012, many Dragon Quest fans expected the game to come overseas after the successful sales (http://www NULL.gamespot NULL.com/articles/dragon-quest-ix-sales-top-53-million/1100-6304548/) of Dragon Quest 9 on 3DS. It’s been almost two years since the original Dragon Quest 10 Wii release in Japan, and North America and Europe have yet to see Dragon Quest 10 localized to the rest of the world. Dragon Quest 10 is the first MMO game in the series, which many fans would love to get their hands on.
In addition to DQ10, fans have been striving to get the Dragon Quest 7 remake on the Nintendo 3DS. With the improved 3D graphics, the shortening of the extremely long dialogue and hours of gameplay, the remake is something almost all Dragon Quest fans want to add to their collection.
Some might argue that the lack of sales for the Dragon Quest series is the reasoning for Square Enix and Nintendo’s hiatus from localizing both games. Operation Hero’s goal is to show both Square Enix and Nintendo that there is in fact a large dedicated fanbase outside of Japan, and we will let our voices be heard.
