According to series creator Yuji Horii Dragon Quest VII and Dragon Quest VIII for the 3DS will both be heading West at some point. When Speaking at the Japan Expo in Paris, France the creator made a slip up about the games coming out in the French language.  Here are a few tweets on the subject.


This looks very promising for Dragon Quest fans. We’ll pass along more information as it becomes available.


About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.

    There better also be an English release, or this will be the sickest joke I have ever heard.

    • Steve Baltimore

      If they do it in French it has to be in English. EU releases have a lot of rules on Languages.

    • Jonah Rosen

      Well that’s good then. Now my only worry at this point is that it’s EU only and no NA release.

    • Infophile

      Well, remember when that happened with Xenoblade. I seem to recall a certain successful operation managing to get it released in NA as well. Now what was it called again…? 😉

    • Infophile

      Yay for the Europeans! I believe this will be the first time it’ll be released there.

    • JDobbs

      I never knew that rule applied to Europe. I knew everything in Canada has to be in both English and French.

  • Lord Ackercocke

    Please let it be so.

    Cool. When do we get a new real* DQ game? I’M WAITING!
