    Today, Square Enix got as specific as they could afford to be by announcing that Dragon Quest IX for the DS would be released in Japan in March of 2009. A trailer is scheduled to appear at the upcoming TGS of October. No playable demo though. And obviously, no US date until well after the Japan release (if it gets a US release at all....which is at least very likely).

    9 will come out in the States. 8 wasn't Final Fantasy huge, but it did OK enough for IV, V, and VI to see releases, albeit slow.
    I'm excited - I'll be able to play this one with my students.

    Sweet! They've been pretty good lately about getting their games out within months of the Japanese releases. Very, very much looking forward to DQIX. Should be jawsome!

    This game is developed since the NDS is released!!! [​IMG]

    I highly hope they'll manage to meet the date, and that game will be as amazing as it should be after all this time..

    Oh good, so we can look forward to it sometime around 2011? 2010 with good behavior?

    Screw Japan and their dumbass antiquated regional business model.
