    I am so excited for this stuff. I would go crazy for this if it gets localized and is on the O3DS. Even if its selfish and ultimately worse for the game to be on the O3DS. You would think that because its already over there on PS2 and mobile that this would be an easy decision to make the 3DS version available over here too.

    I'll probably get this if it gets an EU release. I just hope that it's actually in 3D, unlike Xenoblade.

    It's on O3DS. The magazine showing the CV stated O3DS specifically, not N3DS.

    Given the way SE works, they won't release this game even if they already have the script unless they release 7 first.
    Terry's Wonderland wouldn't really matter since it's the remake of a spin-off, however 7 is a numbered game and it would just seem strange to just go ahead and release 8 (not to mention that it would just piss off more fans on top of it).

    Personally I'm still hoping for DQVII to come to the west, I'm replaying the original atm, but the fact that it's a Dragon Warrior game kinda ruins the experience after having played the DS remakes (the fun accents and all the different names for spells and monsters doesn't really help). It's one of my all time favourites and those new features from the 3DS version seem really awesome. Dx

    I actually hate how punny and accent-y the Dragon Quest localizations have become :( I've also been playing DQVII after more than a decade since my last playthrough, and it's really nice to see text translated as text, not fluffed up.

    For everyone thinking this may get localized since the game has already been localized in other formats: if I'm not mistaken, those at Dragon's Den working on the DQVII 3DS translation recently found that the PS1 translation lines up line for line with everything except the new stuff that wouldn't have a translation available (ie: 3DS specific features). You know that this is probably common knowledge on the SE side of things, and they still don't want to spend the very minimal amount of time it would take to move the translation over and make localization a reality (minimal when compared to actually having to translate from scratch). Of course, maybe they just don't want to get it done because the company they normally use doesn't have the time to butcher the script with as many puns as you can possibly fit into the game.

    Granted, things could become more complex for the fan translation, but don't be surprised if a fan translation is ultimately the only translation available. For the sake of the DQVII translation, I do hope the line up does work out, as talk of using a combined Google/Bing translating engine has me more than a little nervous about the potential quality and accuracy of a fan translation done from scratch.

    If they won't even do that, what makes anybody think they'll localize the new VIII despite the fact that it will have an entire new scenario and new characters shoehorned in as well as voiced, meaning all the original voice acting likely has to be redone to incorporate the new characters? That is far more work than just text translation, and if SE won't even deal with the very simple project that would be localizing DQVII, you can be certain that they won't be bothering with DQVIII.

    It seems like a waste to me unless they also expand the monster part of the game as well...

    Nintendo has made me regret buying a PS Vita recently. It really seems like the best releases are for the new 3DS. PS Vita has some good games, but most of them are Japanese only and have no chance of an English release. I wouldn't regret it so much if there was even a slight chance of getting English versions of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, Phantasy Star Online 2, Phantasy Star Nova, or God Eater 2.

    I originally sold my 3DS because it didn't have enough games... :(

    On Vita you can at least import said games. on 3DS you can't even do that.
    If DQ8 wont be localized, and currently we have no reason to believe that it will, then you won't be able to play it even in Japanese with Guides how to play it.

    For everyone who has a problem with this coming to the 3DS, remember.

    Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King was ported to Android....

    Oh man this really should've been ported to vita instead of 3DS (top left 3DS, right Mobile, bottom left PS2 original)
    The 3DS version looks like a N64 game with higher amount of polygons.

    Looks like they ported the mobile version, than the PS2 version. Downgraded indeed, i think the mobile one was a downgrade compared to the PS2 version.

    It was. Not only can you plainly see less and less foliage as the game is downported further and further with draw distance being lessened and distanced details looking less sharp, but the mobile already took a graphical hit. The 3DS version just looks like poop in comparison. Considering DQVIII was one of the most beautiful PS2 games, it's really a shame to see it being beaten down like this all for the sake of making a quick buck. Not to mention they didn't even bother putting the PS2 voice acting in when they ported the game to mobile for English speaking countries. At least the 3DS version will have voice acting for Japanese folk, if nothing else.

    Honestly at this point I'll take what I can get. If I play the 3ds version and then decide to go play the ps2 version, it will be like a step up. That said, I still think vita would have been the platform for this game. But seriously, it doesn't matter if it never gets translated.

    This is very sad. The original 3ds is about equal to the gamecube in the graphic department but with shading and lighting on par with the 360. And arguably better game storage then the gamecube. This just shows how much the 240 resolution of the 3DS is holding it back.

    People still keep believing in this myth? The 3DS is more of a PSP2 than anything else.

    Just remember all, even if this will be disappointing, at least the fairly fun looking Dragon Quest Heroes will be coming to PS4 sometime this year for us English speaking folk. That also makes me think that if they wanted to gussy up DQ8 in the Heroes art style and re-release it for PS4 as a remake, it would probably look stellar. Too bad that probably wouldn't come to America either though, even if they made it.
