Ha I think Japan already has a law out saying no DQ game can be released on a Weekday for everyone from work to school would call in. This game is bigger than big in Japan even bigger than FF! Square Enix though does seem to not stock as many units as they should for these DS games. Hopefully the have a million or more ready when launch happens.

dragon quest 8 was perfect so I got a DS really just for this game ( well also final fantasy tatics and phoenix wright) However I'm sort of bummed of the main character designs. They all look like children again which really turns me off an rpg ( its what killed blue dragon for me) What do you guys think? think the story and perfect classical rpg gameply will be more than enough to make it worth it?

PS360WII3851d ago

Yes I'm a stickler for turn bases rpgs and the story will be done well I'm sure. Kid characters don't turn me off to much as I did like Blue Dragon (and I'm looking forward to the DS version ^^)

I'm a sucker too. Its my favorite video game genre. DO you think I need to play blue dragon to play blue dragon DS?

PS360WII3851d ago

Doubtful you'll need to play the 360 version to know what's up for the DS version. I think the DS version will be before or new story all together. It's probably just to get more Japanese gamers intrested in the idea of Blue Dragon seeing that Japan doesn't really play the Xbox

Probably one of biggest sellers in 08, at least in Japan
