The popular Japanese IT magazine Weekly ASCII asked its readers on what platform they’d like to play the next Dragon Quest game, and the result were only partly predictable.
The consumers have spoken, we can only hope that the devs listen.
Dat Wii duUum.
come on Level-5, make this happen. Start with an HD release of Dragon Quest VIII.
And since Square Enix seems to have grown a brain (finally KH3) we might even be lucky.
In case everyone has forgotten, Nintendo owns the rights to publish DQ outside of Japan, so even if they did release it on the PS4, it would not be coming out anywhere but inside Japan unless it was on a Nintendo system.
There you have it SE...
....b-b-b-but I thought Japan was totally about the handheld market and didn't care about consoles anymore and the PS4 won't sell there and...
How many people did they ask for this poll? Still that percent is shockingly high compared to second place.
Always a relevent question in any poll. Also the demographics of "where" it was asked. There are plenty of places you can make a poll that would give vastly different results. Like on this site. Any poll will always favor Sony no matter what because of how heavy the Sony bias is. Go to gamefaqs on the other hand, and things tend to be more spread out and generally in favor of Sony hardware but Nintendo for software.
Weekly Ascii is one of the most popular Japanese IT and electronics magazines. Think the local Wired. It's no N4G.
Going byt he disagreeing j-blaze got just for pointing out the facts, its clearly that people who want this article to me far more than it does.
Want what game ?
I guess the 1% is fitting it is xbox 1 afterall
Gamers have spoken worldwide
No surprise PS4 will dominate in Japan and everywhere else too.
PS3 could've been a better poll option than Wii U or Xbone. lol
Dragon quest full 1080p 60fps Confirmed!
Dragon Quest on PS4 make it happen please add to my JRPG log.
Dragon Quest VIII was seriously one of the best rpg's I've ever played. Do it!
Did the other 29% not care?
either that or they were left out to make the article skewed in a certain favour.. who knows.
other 29 probably wanted it on ps3
I think 3DS would win this if it was an option.
SE: Hmm, guess we should NOT put it on the PS4, herp derp.
Please do it! Let Level 5 make it though.
This is why I was saying put DQ X, on the Vita/PS3. SE should release all the DQ games for both hand helds.
I really hope its not an MMO. Count me in if its back to old school DQ!
:O I would buy a ps4 day 1 if the game gets released on it
Oh god that would be amazing I miss DQ days on the ps2 I really miss the series
I hate to say it...but the 1% are most likely Americans or other English speaking foreigners .
just name it xboxonepercent and this will sell like hot cake in japan
i think they only care about playing Dragon Quest(PS4) on the vita.
YES BRING IT TO MY PS4 SQUENIX IT WILL BE TOTALLY AWESOME JUST LIKE VIII WAS
They have spoken! Now listen to your community for once, SE.
Great But Dragon Quest is exclusive to Nintendo atm..... hope that changes.
I'm sure most Japanese would prefer the next one to be on vita or 3ds
The people have spoken, let the jrpg's reign free Gateway MT6706 2008
damn, i think i need to get a PS4 instead
I'll get it...if you give me a suitable offline mode T_T
Anything that releases on ps4 is great for me cause that means vita remote play for me so bring it on :-)
They didn't give 3DS as an option, fail. We all know its most likely for iOS or 3DS. Maybe Vita as a long shot. Square Enix isn't going to spend $50 million (we all know they can't control a budget) on developing a single DQ for Japan and they won't release it in the west unless Nintendo helps, which they don't seem interesting in doing so right now.
Too much of a wierd fantasy acid trip game for my tastes. Japan eats that stuff up. To each thier own I guess.
too late the ip gone multiplatform, pc and mobile
i think i know why they want the next DQ on the ps4... hoping it'll be the traditional turn base jrpg they are used to and not the mmo style. If SE has any brain cells left they'll just do a multiplat( XB1,PS4,WiiU,PSV,PC) traditional version and give the gamers a big victory dance.
