Dragon Quest VIII is coming to 3DS, Square Enix has announced.
And this ain't gonna end so well with some people.... Really SE really?
I NEED to play this game. Even more so than Dragon Quest 7. Have yet to play either.
well this comment section is gonna be interesting to say the least *grabs chair and popcorn* better not let me down fellow N4G commentors
I won't let you down. No western release = moneygoesflyingbackintomywalle t.gif
WHAT? Square ports a game? Well I'll say I'm 100% generally shocked, they normally never, ever port for any reason.....ever. WOW!!!
no i'm talking about the port begging that is already going down.
normally never, ever port JUST ONCE for any reason* ftfy :P
Well done SE put it on the most outdated pos out there. We all know what a success Metal gear 3 on 3DS was or Street fighter IV.
inb4 "Now it ain't coming west" or "PS4 with better graphicssss"
It would only make sense to bring it to playstation platforms, cause its playstation fans that made the game popular, and those demanded a HD version for ps3
oh so what your take on Tales of Symphonia which the GC and Nintendo fans made it to 1m. Best Tales to date and made the series debut in 3D.
Hah DQ was a JRPG phenomenon before PlayStation even existed
I'm 100% positive Dragon Warrior was popularized on Nintendo platforms for the first 6 console games.
No PS4 version? come on......
seriously one of the dumbest in your face to fans,decision in quite some time. I can't believe this shit
way to piss of playstation fans square enix, seriously <_< I like my 3ds, but Dragon Quest VIII never had a history with non playstation platforms. You had one job to bring a HD for PS4(formerly ps3)*sigh* edit: @animegamingnerd I know, but i don't consider smartphones game devices
lolz, its Square...it likely will come to many systems. @Animegamingnerd- yet....it was made on the PS2. Square is always porting junk, it will find its way to PS systems soon enough.
its on mobile so in a way you can say it had a non history of non playstation platforms.
Mobile is irrelevant to the core, it might as well not even exist.
To be fair, that mobile port is trash and doesn't do the game ANY justice at all. It can be played, and that's really all that can said about it.
I don't care what platform it comes to. I just want it localized, as well as the other 5 3DS Dragon Quest games that didn't make it to North America.
Vita says f***** hello.
Damn. Was hoping PS4.
For a second thought it was a NEW DQ game but it ain't, damn
More demake with chibi characters for japaneses,thank god we not gonna see that trash here,the ps2 version is the only one what count.
GDI!!! I just sold my 3DS.
Because I had already played everything that was out on it that I wanted to play and there was nothing coming out that I wanted to play. I don't think this would have pushed me to keep it, but it's an excellent game, nonetheless. Thanks for the disagrees, everyone. I thought it was weird everyone was being so nice to me lately. I needed some unwarranted negativity in my life to balance it out. I appreciate it.
you got weird taste then, you sold it before the new fire emblem come out, im pretty sure there were other great games coming out for it, but its your choice
Give me a vita or console game damnit!!!
Get a Nintendo, scratch the Nintendo name off the system, then buy a ton of games that are really good that you missed out because you did not want anything from Nintendo
Awwwee Yeah! Regret never finishing the original, though an HD remaster would be preferable.
Watch it be *New* 3DS
The issue is not that it's on the 3DS, the issue is whether it'll be localized. Square seems to think that westerners don't care for DQ which is BS at it's finest.
The salt is real
Close but no FFXII remake
At least it could come to the vita too :/
I haven't played DQ8, so this is great news!!! Can't wait for a localization!!! I DO hope for a localization...
What a waste to put it on 3DS the most outdated piece of shit out there.
Less $$$ lost in development. Not surprise but hoping for a Vita port.
Here's a better idea, why not just make a HD remaster of the game available for the PS4 ?
Nice! Now all they need to do is release ViI and this in America!
I do not blame them one bit, 3ds is where the money at, hope it do not come to Vita or ps4, I rather they get all the money that they can from the 3ds. They could bring it to the Wii U too, that would be great since Dragon Quest 10 is doing well, and making them a ton of profit with the more than 200,000 monthly subscribers, i think it was 236,000 subscribers or 246,000 subscribers, which ever it is, Square loves the money Nintendo customers giving them, so it makes sense to bring it to Nintendo 3ds or Wii U
Too bad for westerners. This won't get a release in English. It's already been 3 years since they released DQVII on 3DS and it still hasn't gone west. Very unlucky this will.
