    i would just buy these if they were for 3DS. and if they were for Vita, this would be a reason to buy a Vita.

    or even better, they could just release it for PS3/xbox 360 or the next gen consoles. is it too hard?

    DQ VIII is one of the best games I've ever played, such a great JRPG and really sparked my interest in the genre.
    Can't imagine this playing on a smartphone though, why not a real console? A remake would be so epic, so good, goddamnit.....

    A cold cold place

    Or Terry's Wonderland for that matter. Fuck Square Enix I say!

    I am seriously pissed off at the fact that they haven't localized either game yet.

    wait how do we know we aren't getting that :wtf:

    An I would have liked 8 on 3DS :( it is a great game and I think it is well geared towards the portable scene with how it flows.

    I'm just assuming at this point but Dragon Quest doesn't really sell well in America so SE probably doesn't see the point in releasing.

    And it's been out for awhile in Japan so if they do localize it, it will have been an afterthought

    So pretty much 1-7 will be emulated (with 4-6 being the ds remakes) and only 8 will be ported, right?

    7 might be a port of the 3DS version, but they could go either way with that easily

    If mobile phones now have such games does not that not rather damage the "no real games" thing and thus make them a real console as it were?

    Anyway good going Square Enix, keep it up.

    Neither, as far as I am concerned Nintendo either dropped the ball with the 3ds and I am waiting for someone to pick it up or were otherwise caught lacking. Mobile phones and related devices already having significant advantages (though not enough for me to bother having one) they are the obvious choice for something to pick up the slack.

    Firstly. I guess SQUARE are on a casual quest.

    Secondly, IN B4 Bortzy's salty tears after hearing the news.

    So this is what the SE president meant by urgent reform! Port all the Dragon Quest games instead of all the Final Fantasy games! Genius!
