The headline and thumbnail show Dragon Quest 8. The petition is for 7 and 10.

Fixed, thank you. An extra "I" slipped in unnoticed.

Dragon Quest 9 was awesome. I loved that game.

I need more Dragon Quest. It's been long enough.

No more excused, there HAS to be something in the works for EU & North America.

FINALLY! What is the point of not localizing these games? Dragon Qurst 9 was my favorite DS game. (One of the only ones I played.)

Money and sales. The fact is (sadly) games such as this dont have appeal to the 'casuals', i.e those who buy every COD, Assassins Creed or GTA, ergo the money spent translating doesn't translate - no pun intended - into sales. Its like Shenmue. Sure people are telling us now how much they loved the original but its impossible THAT many people are telling you the truth, fact is the Dreamcast didnt sell in big numbers and Shenmue itself even less...I dont count myself in this example.

VII they should be able to translating it shouldn't be that expensive.Though X is far more expensive since they would need new servers.

So you want them to release a subscription based mmo on Wii/u? Good luck with that

Although I would like to play X I'm really only interested in VII, I never got to beat it due to a save error and it hasn't exactly aged well over the years in terms of how long it takes to get things done in the game. I'd love for this to come to the states, although chances are it won't :(

Dragon Quest 7 was severely outdated the day it was released. I'll either play the 3DS version, or I won't play it at all.

Yea, it's true the game has some bad technical issues. I'm not 16 anymore so spending 30 hours of a 100 hour game loading fights, having to search tirelessly for those 2 portal pieces I missed in good knows where of the world only to find out I CAN'T GET BACK TO THEM and the game's now broke, the job system and its insane leveling difficulty, it's just to much.
That story wasn't broke though, there were so many rich characters and awesome situations while rebuilding the world. Such a great game marred by dumb issues, I need this re release!!!

X is exactly what this system needs. The online is almost non-existant.

I've been dying for another home console based Dragon Quest game here in the States. I used to play Dragon Warrior 1 and 2 on NES when I was like 5 years old, some of the first games I ever played...Good times right there.
